Ivy Shambitt And The Sound Machie

by Daniel Evans

“It’s Desperate Housewives by way of Tim Burton and Lemony Snicket.” – Australian Stage, July 2006.

$27.95

Description

The small town of Apronwood appears normal enough, if a little tired and rundown. But the people of Apronwood harbour a dark secret that they will do anything to keep… even if it means murder…

In this delightfully Roald Dahlesque tale, Daniel Evans warns us what happens when a community neglects its children and how the past comes back to haunt us.

“The humour was reminiscent of those old school days, the plot was an imaginative take on social hierarchies and the art of revenge and – finally – the fact children have opportunities like this to perform and have some fun is great.” – Australian Stage, July 2006.
