Description A blistering punk-rock encounter, Prehistoric immerses the audience in the Brisbane of the late 1970s, following four young people as they discover the thrills - and the lessons - of self-expression under a corrupt and intolerant government. With original music by Marcel Dorney and Steve Toulmin, and featuring some of Brisbane’s finest performers, Prehistoric is a tribute to rebellious sparks in the unlikeliest places, that burn brightly and disappear.

'Exhiliarating, gut-wrenching, evocative... leaves you giddy with excitement and feeling utterly alive.'
​- Richard Watts, Artshub/RRR
