'House on Fire at the Edge of the World' tells of an Australian Rock Musical

Conor Neylon and Jackson Peele are the emerging directors of new show, ;House on Fire at the Edge of the World' bringing theatre back to Melbourne in a COVID-safe venue.

New show, The House on Fire at the Edge of the World, identifies itself as a breathtaking new Australian ambient rock musical, interwoven with the beating heart of contemporary folk music.

Unique in its offering, it has live music, dance and a dazzlingly suspicious upside-down kingdom take centre stage in this captivating live experience that will take you to another world and back.

Inspired by musicals such as Hadestown and Once, The House On Fire is experimental music theatre at its most ambitious.

Proudly presented by Theatreworks as part of their Fringe Replanted season, and performed in the innovative in-the-round Glasshouse site, all aspects of this production are conducive to innovative, ambitious, zany story-telling.

Conor Neylon and Jackson Peele are a young passionate up-and-coming Australian musical theatre writing duo, who fatefully met in Perth whilst studying at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts.

In 2020, they presented their award-winning, sell-out season of the musical comedy The Beep Test at Fringe World and developed their musical Beau Wants To Be A Billionaire with Hope New Works Development Initiative. They are determined individuals who have come together to create the kind of shows and stories they want to see on the Australian stage; stories that speak of problems and hardships, of people with things to say and music that sings of emotion and energy.
