Welcome to Sameville | Shock Therapy Productions (AUS)
You are about to enter a weird and wacky world called Sameville, Utopia on show!
Take a guided tour of a very peculiar autonomous utopian regime. In 'Sameville', you'll find yourself right in the middle of the action, surrounded by people who dress the same, move the same, and act the same. You'll meet several colourful characters and discover the truth about this mysterious place.
Welcome to Sameville is an immersive and interactive theatrical experience that explores democracy, human rights, personal empowerment and freedom of expression.
A world where Dr Seuss and Roald Dahl meet George Orwell and Aldous Huxley.
