In the soporific heat of a North Queensland wet season, mosquitoes buzz incessantly as these six stories unfold, each with its own grisly twist. From a clinical hospital ward, to red dirt and rose gardens, our human foibles are brought to the fore in a quest to understand our dysfunctional relationship with Mother Nature.

"This work is bold; it has an intimate understanding of dramatic action and character development wrapped in a world of dark humour." - David Fenton

"Bell’s absurdist and outrageously comic characters attempt to face their demons which take us all on a deliriously visceral ride. This show Delirium, is definitely a visceral experience, you may not know exactly what is going on and why, but you will have a stimulation of the senses." - ArtsHub

"One word kept coming to mind while watching Delirium - extraordinary. This is an extraordinary piece of theatre." - The Cairns Post
