An immersive theatre experience of love and betrayal

A family are taking up temporary residence in a grand building at the height of a war. One night, as the conflict comes to a head, long time grudges are exposed, spies are uncovered, and two star-crossed lovers plot their escape. You are invited to step into this world and explore as you choose in this immersive theatrical experience. As the drama unfolds in real time, which side of the story will you see?
This new work tells a multi-layered story of love, betrayal and the forging of identity at a time when survival takes priority. Part period drama and part romance, Rust is an unforgettable theatrical experience that brings the audience up close to the action and offers different points of view on how the story will unfold.
TBC Theatre are a Melbourne-based company who aim to challenge the traditional conventions of theatre. They have been producing works in non-theatre spaces since their inception in 2014. These works include the sold-out Mr. Naismith’s Secret, which was performed at Melbourne General Cemetery and Shadows of Angels, which was performed at the Old Melbourne Gaol.

"Innovative in concept and slick in execution. An experience unlike any other."
