Meet Carl; a failed rock star turned children’s entertainer. Carl can write a kid’s song on the back of a beer coaster in two minutes. This talent has made him one of the richest and most unhappy men in Australia. Things take a turn for the worst when Carl decides to reinvent himself as a moral crusader. The problem is Carl underestimated the leap from children’s music to truly standing up for your beliefs, and he comes out
looking like a poor man’s Bono.
Permission to Spin is a funny till it’s not cage fight between art and ethics; a Trump-esque allegory about men that carry their school-yard bully techniques all the way to adulthood. This play is for everyone that thinks children’s music is torture.
Warning: contains swearing, drug use, sexual references and actors in animal costumes (but no nudity).
