See this award-winning picture book come to life on stage

Monkey Baa Theatre Company is presenting Diary of a Wombat, a new Australian play based on the picture book by Jackie French and Bruce Whatley.

Adapted for the stage by Monkey Baa’s creative directorate Eva Di Cesare, Sandra Eldridge and Tim McGarry, this live production will feature fun puppetry, a live cello score and an evoking set design.

Audiences aged three and over will meet Mothball, a naughty wombat bored with her daily routine. She goes in search of shelter and food but creates chaos in the lives of the humans around her as she mischievously wrestles with doormats, bins and washing lines in her path. Spending her days scratching, sleeping and eating, Mothball soon learns that with a bit of persistence, humans can quite easily be trained.

The show stars Michael Cullen (War Horse), Julia Ohannessian (Hamlet) and Shondelle Pratt (Man of La Mancha) with cellist Mary Rapp also acting as the voice of Mothball.
