Sleepless Theatre Company presents

Nine Foot Nine

What would happen if most self-identifying women across the world grew to be nine foot tall?

Cara and Nate are a hard-working young couple looking to start a family. They’re bumbling through the daunting world of pregnancy tests, maternity clothes and flat-pack cot-building, all the while trying to come to grips with having to create an actual human person. That is, until suddenly, inexplicably, a vast proportion of all the women in the world start to grow.

“A provocative dystopian play that is disturbing, powerful, and inclusive. … Magnificent performances from both Alexandra James and Paul O’Dea are evocative, showing the weakness and vulnerability inherent within us all, even if you are Nine Foot Nine.” – The Play’s The Thing

★★★★★ “Intelligent and challenging” – The List

★★★★ “A confluence of clever and complex choices” – Miro Magazine

★★★★ “Funny, tender, touching and vaguely unsettling” – The Wee Review

Want to know more about Sleepless Theatre Company?

Sleepless Theatre Company strives to ethically produce bold, concept-driven work that cherishes the relationship between performers and audience. They dare, they make mistakes and they exist in that glorious, muddling crossover between intense ambition and logistical feasibility.

They always ask the question: How can they enable the environment they provide to be suitable for everyone? This applies to everyone from the artists they work with to audience members who come to watch the theatre they create. They aim to offer an inclusive, accessible environment for all – not only enabling everyone to create, work on or watch their theatre, but also to make them feel welcome.
