You are invited to a house party. Tomorrow, the Earth will be eaten by a black hole. It's definitely not my fault.

Winner of the Sydney Fringe Tour Ready award, Deep and Meaningful is an absurdist poetry/comedy show that explores depression and modern fears about our limited time left on Earth. After a sell-out season at the New Zealand Fringe Festival, we are over the moon to bring this party to Sydney.

“Dick keeps us well entertained, with poetry, prose, games, and wish lists. Dick has poured her heart into the language of this show; her poetry is funny, precious, and loving. I feel like listening to Dick’s poetry is like soul food for me at this challenging time.”
-Art Murmurs
