SYNOPSIS: Oddball teen cousins Ivan and Juniper Plank are putting together a glitzy variety show chronicling the series of extremely unfortunate events that led to the demise of 26 infants. It's a tribute ... of sorts.

Welcome to a weird, warped eisteddfod, where this endearing pair lead you on a brilliantly inventive, wickedly funny journey – in strict alphabetical order, of course – through the short lives of these doomed infants.

The gothic quirkiness of Tim Burton meets the adorable kitsch of Wes Anderson in A Tribute of Sorts. An artful, dark, morbidly funny celebration of the art of theatre itself.

PRODUCTION HISTORY: A Tribute of Sorts premiered in 2012 at La Boite as part of La Boite Indie. It's debute production was winner of 4 Matilda Awards including; Best New Australian Work, Best Independant Production, Best Male Actor — Dash Kruck and Best Female Actor — Emily Burton.
