Somewhere on the fringes of the internet, Ria e-meets Flick and instantly falls in analogue love. They’ve never actually met IRL, but their passion is as real as the moon landing, the loch ness monster and the flying saucers over Roswell. That is, until Ria learns with horror that Flick is a ‘Flat Earther’ – and Flick learns with horror that Ria is a ‘Globe Earther’. In this beautiful and chaotic electro-pop musical epic, star-cross’d lesbians tumble into the depths of the dark web – where the most far-out, dangerous conspiracy theories turn out to be very, very real…

With a cast of wild, OTT characters and packed with irresistible earworms, Flat Earthers satirises our divided age of post-truth politics with a winning balance of hilarity, absurdity, and empathy. West Side Story meets QAnon in this unique queer pop spectacle.


A co-production with Griffin Theatre Company

Flat Earthers: The Musical was commissioned by the Malcolm Robertson Foundation and developed with the assistance of Arts Centre Melbourne and Playking Foundation.
