HIR is here! Our Nuclear family 2.0 have blasted through the opening weekend of shows with sold-out houses, captivating critics and audiences alike. Here’s what they’re saying:

“Whip-smart and subversive, provocative and ambitious.” – ★★★★, The Age

“Director, Daniel Clarke, has steered this play superbly…”
– ★★★★ 1/2, Theatre People
“Pitch-perfect cast…anarchic volleys of laughter…deeply affecting.”
-★★★★, Australian Book Review
