Melbourne International Comedy Festival acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live. We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' spirit, imagination and rich history of storytelling and humour that is an inspiration to all Australians.

We accept the invitation to walk together with First Nations people towards a more positive future for Australia, as described in the Uluru Statement From The Heart.

Chuckling Dino presents

In the Wings

Is there anything more annoying than a theatre kid?

Ryan & Corey live on two opposite ends of the high school spectrum – the rehearsal room and the footy oval. Together they are tasked with building the set for their high school's musical. Is co-existence possible or will all hell break loose?

Equal parts a celebration and satire, In the Wings is a new play by up-and-coming creatives Charlie Veitch and Rex Cameron that explores the importance of community, belonging and doing what you love. It's mainly humorous though. Humorous and witty and relatable. It just has a big beating heart at the centre of it.

So, whether you're a seasoned high school thespian or an outsider confounded by the appeal of this strange, often cringe inducing world, please come along and discover what's really going on…in the wings.

Written by: Charlie Veitch, Rex Cameron
