THE BLOOMSHED is a theatre company run out of a backyard shed in suburban Carnegie. 
Deconstructing classic texts to reimagine them as surreal landscapes, the core team is made up of writers, performers, visual artists and devisors. 

The group is also invested in the development of new writing, in a discourse between writers and devisers.

"An unapologetically raucous night spent skewering the economic status quo."


”Political theatre dredged from the crisis of late capitalism...”

“...a mess of punk protest theatre, spoken word, sketch comedy, maniacally choreographed dance routines and surreal allegory.”

“The piece seethes with surrealism like a fever dream.”
