A Resourceful Hero Struggles Against Incredible Odds

This work examines our collective obsession with heroes, superheros and supervillains, as performers try to embody the strength, cunning, special abilities and ridiculous outfits of these worlds.

One Night Only


One performer, one night only. 

 82 minutes to leave a legacy. 

 One Night Only explores key moments within our lives such as: birth, parents, childhood, pets, love, heartbreak, sex, children, aging and death. 

 Performed by a different person playing the protagonist every night, One Night Only is a performance that playfully provokes the protagonist to consider what it means to be human, both on a deeply personal and universal level, in a bold ‘one night only’ unrepeatable performance.  

 The protagonist is supported by members of the Rawcus Ensemble guiding them throughout.
