The Ballad of Backbone Joe


A hilariously daft and gruesome tale of a murder, set in a small country town, cooked up the way only The Suitcase Royale lads can.

This internationally acclaimed trio are riding across the ditch to Tinui and Pirinoa to bring you a murder ballad of Junkyard theatre, visual trickery, dark humour and rag’n’bone live music.

Get your tickets quick, as these travelling shows sell out!
