Close Encounters of the Murderous Kind

Mon 14 to Sat 19 Feb

Close Encounters of the Murderous Kind

The rumours are true. Barack Obama himself admits he’s seen the saucers – UFOs are out there.
This is the story of one of those UFOs. They’re looking for current US President Joe Biden to deliver an urgent message.

But unfortunately they crash-land into the backyard of Australia’s most dangerous woman. A deadly, and uncaptured slasher – ‘The Sleepy Maidens Killer’. The Alien couldn’t have found a worse representative for the human race.

This is part Sci-Fi, part horror, part comedy, and no place for children.

Devised by Sabina Gerardi, Kaine Hansen and Clare Taylor.
