The Earth is Flat - Melbourne Fringe Festival



Coming to the Melbourne Fringe Festival

In the Middle Ages, Cardinal Zotroid, the leader of a rebellious sect of Catholics that believed the earth was flat, was turned into a statue by the Pope. Reanimated in the present day and shown proof the world is round, Zotroid hires Clive Palmer to saw the Earth in half in order to prove himself right.

Melbourne Museum’s janitor, Ray Brandon, once a renowned now disgraced archaeologist, uncovers Cardinal Zoitroid’s plot. Only Ray, his English nephew and a genetically modified horse can save the planet from catastrophe.

A story of power, redemption and a big drill.
