The Emu War: A New Musical

Edinburgh Previews Weekender!

20 + 21 July 2024

Cabaret

Get your tail feathers ready for some dancing birds, catchy tunes and laughter! Inspired by true events of the Great Emu War of 1932, our comedy musical follows the Australian government's futile attempts to fight some mischievous emus…

This is the Bristol-based, half-Welsh cast’s debut at Cabaret. Helo! The Emu War has already been featured by Playbill as one of their top international pics for the Fringe – if that and dancing emus can’t convince you to come along, we don’t know what will. 

Hilarious and full of heart”
