Something nasty happened to the world. Where did everyone go? The Scientist and his Perfect Daughter seek refuge on a jungle island. The Scientist goes about his experiments on their brand new caged gorilla. Suddenly, one normal day, a handsome 3rd year Science Student arrives to assist the Scientist in his work. The Perfect Daughter falls for him.
As the father delves deeper into the brains of the jungle, his Perfect Daughter and the Science Student creep into the branches of the trees, only to discover that dark magic rules the island. Can anyone be trusted in the next world? No.

"Utterly refreshing and a little bit foreign...a combination of clever, even poetic, writing that delivers thigh-slapping laughs."
"Charmingly Dizzy" Village Voice (NYC)
“Deliciously mad…Be witness to the birth of some new comedic superstars in the making” Australian Stage
“The delivery is superb, ranging from hilariously sustained deadpan to energetic inanity...woven into an ineffably kinky and imaginative whole" the age
