POST is a new Australian musical, a cautionary tale about the power of words and the hysteria that surrounds fake news. In January 2019, Something Blue Productions presented a staged reading of this brand new musical in Melbourne.
In the far away village of Gilthrum news of a plague arrives with the post. Seela must stop her fellow villagers from turning on the Postman when evidence suggests forged letters. As the townsfolk become increasingly paranoid, Seela learns how far they will go to protect their comfortable lives and dark secrets.
