What does the future hold for you?
Ensemble Offspring are taking their excellent show The Secret Noise to the Melbourne Festival. I’m not in the show, but I’m going to stowaway in a marimba case. Once there, they’re too polite not to give me something to do… I can loosely hold a tune, or take tickets. After that, nothing much, the slow degeneration of bodily function, the evaporation of will, the erosion of desire, and finally, of course, dust.

The Secret Noise plays at Arts House – North Melbourne Town Hall as part of the 2016 Melbourne Festival: 14 & 15 October. For more information, visit: www.artshouse.com.au for details.
