About



Working out of a small shack in the isolated wilds of south-western Tasmania, George, an environmental scientist, is trying to save the world one Tassie Devil at a time.  Since she was a small girl she has dreamt of halting the advance of climate change, but saving a species in the middle of nowhere will have to do, for now. 


Sharing the cramped shack with George is Harris, a ranger with an annoying chicken nugget obsession, who has been charged with bringing a feral dog plague under control to help protect George’s work with the devils.  Across one night, when two unexpected visitors trigger a series of events, George is going to discover that ideology can only take you so far when sometimes the problem just needs a damned good beating. 

A co-production between Playlab and La Boite The Dead Devils of Cockle Creek is a dark comedy by Brisbane’s Kathryn Marquet (Pale Blue Dot).

This play was developed through Playlab’s Beta Testing and Playwright-in-Residence programs.
