This absurd, psychedelic comedy from two emerging theatre-makers takes audiences back to the '70s, on a journey that touches on the bizarre socio-political times of today.

Theatre Works is traveling back in time with Very Nice Pot Plants to Purify the Air and Enrich Your Life (or Pot Plants for short), a groovy new play for the modern age. It's part of Fringe Replanted, a program of nine experimental new works opening the theatre's 2021 season.

It's a play about connection and interdepence, following humans and pot plants alike back to the era of disco, free love and booty shorts. There they'll meet a scientist bent on proving that plants can talk and communicate with the rest of us. Expect irreverent dance numbers, lots of hairspray and nods to the wacky state of the world outside the theatre walls.

Pot Plants is the first collaboration between Karla Livingstone-Pardy and Zachary Sheridan, two emerging theatre-makers who between them have already won awards such as Melbourne Fringe Best Emerging Writer, the South Australian Theatre Company and Flinders University Young Playwrights Award, The Blue Room Theatre Judges' Award and more.

It's being staged into the theatre's intimate new Glasshouse, comprised of 12 booths set up around a small stage at the centre for chamber performances.
