TONSILS & TWEEZERS: FIRST UP FOR 2018 AT KXT

JackRabbit Theatre is proud to present TONSILS & TWEEZERS by Will O’Mahony and directed by Michael Abercromby. 

Tonsils + Tweezers are friends – best friends – inseparable since high school. But a freak accident ten years ago IS threatening to tear them apart. On the afternoon of their high school reunion, Tweezers comes up with a plan. He puts down his tools, takes out a gun, and asks, “Tonsils, ever wanted to kill someone?”

TONSILS & TWEEZERS is a show about friendship, loss and letting go of the past. Moving at lightning pace, this show is as heartfelt as it is hilarious.

JackRabbit Theatre is proud to be presenting the Sydney premiere of this fast, witty new work, and be the first to bring Perth-based writer Will O’Mahony’s fantastic writing to Sydney.

With…
Hoa Xuande, Megan Wilding, Travis Jeffrey and James Sweeny
