Permission to Spin

Date: 14 Jun 2018

On the eve of the biggest music awards night of the country, Cristobel – better known as Miss Polkadot – is a sure bet to win Children’s Album of the Year.

But when Cristobel wishes to unburden herself from a guilty conscience, her agent Jim and boss Martin turn from colleagues to combatants, and all three threaten to tear more apart than just Miss Polkadot’s contract.

Set in the world of children’s music, Mary Rachel Brown’s Permission to Spin is a funny-till-it’s-not cage fight between ego, art and ethics and a look at what happens when a culture of bullying is maintained all the way from the schoolyard to adulthood.

Yure Covich, Anna Houston and Arky Michael feature in this premiere production directed by Dino Dimitriadis.
