Undateable. Unemployable. Unstoppable.

Sydney Theatre Company is bringing back Muriel with a world premiere of the iconic Australian film reworked as an iconic laugh-out musical

Stuck in a dead-end life in Porpoise Spit, Muriel dreams of the perfect wedding – the white dress, the church, the attention. Unfortunately, there’s one thing missing. A groom. Following her dreams to Sydney, Muriel ends up with everything she ever wanted – a man, a fortune and a million Twitter followers. That’s when things start to go really wrong.

PJ Hogan (the original writer and director) has updated his screenplay into a new stage show, updating the the story for a modern audience but keeping all the irreverence and naughtiness of the film along with edge and wit.

Director Simon Phillips (Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead)  and a star studded creative team; eye-popping sets and costumes from Gabriela Tylesova (Love Never Dies). Original music by award-winning singer-songwriters Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall.Sure to be a hit with a big cast and a live band.

Terrible? Terribly excited.
