On the shifting ice plains, an old tribeswoman sets forth into the afterlife; in the tropics, a pyre is set alight to farewell a mother; a child in the desert empties an urn full of ashes into the wind. But the ice is melting, there are fire restrictions and who the hell lets a kid near a dead person’s ashes?

After two years of sell out shows across Australia, Melbourne based company Ruby Gaytime celebrate their third birthday with a killer new offering about that most celebrated and feared life event - death. Is it the end? Is it just the beginning? Whatever it is, it’s sure to be one hell of a party. Oh, and this show is a comedy. A very funny comedy.

Ruby Gaytime presents Death Party, playing as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival in the Fringe Hub Parlour Room from September 18.

George Gayler and Sarah Reuben, company founders and co-writers of BEST (2013) and Short Change (2014), join forces with director Louise Joy McCrae (Girls Uninterrupted) to create a brand new work for Melbourne Fringe. Featuring Sarah Reuben, comic mastermind Jimmy James Eaton and vocal songstress Jessamae St. James.

Combining elements of the surreal, the purely physical and the straight-up hilarious, Death Party asks the hard questions: What do death and moving on mean in a world that is obsessed with youth? Who decides the difference between the spiritual and the gruesome? And how much trifle is too much at a wake?

“Fast moving, hilarious and very well written look at life.“ – Independent Theatre Association (Short Change, 2014)
