Fluff
Cre8ion
from Brisbane, Australia

Welcome to the mad, mod world of the Ginghams, a trio who travels to bring long-lost misfit toys into their home. Fluff was dropped under the couch, Squibbly was abandoned in the gutter and Disco Frog was caught in a ceiling fan. But don't fret, dear pet! With a comedic, quirky and colorful mix of sound, story, video and vacuum, toys get discovered and recovered by the plaid-patterned family. Ab Fab meets Pee Wee's Playhouse meets Grey Gardens for offbeat, off-the-wall, fantastically funny FLUFF: A STORY OF LOST TOYS.

"The laughs come as much from the adults in the audience as their enthralled children."
The Daily Telegraph (Sydney)
"One of the most imaginative shows for the young you will find. Highly sophisticated and great fun..." The Advertiser (Sydney)"The absolute highlight of the festival ... inspired, funny, dark, theatrically clever and sophisticated." Lowdown Magazine (Liverpool)

Getting to Know Fluff: A Story of Lost Toys

 

Founded in 2008, Cre8ion joins the ranks of the fearless companies from Down Under that have brought innovative works to the New Vic stage. Since its inception, Cre8ion has toured material that is anything but ordinary, spanning multiple genres including children's theater, cabaret, comedy and music—and Fluff: A Story of Lost Toys covers it all. To unite these art forms in one production, the talented Lisa O'Neill and Peter Nelson joined Australian performance artist Christine Johnston, master of mod and arbiter of the offbeat, to create and star in a piece that gives a little hope to all long-lost toys. We adore Christine's silly sensibility and cannot wait to welcome a bit of her wackiness to our theater.

Down in the lobby you'll find stroller parking, free lockers to store your stuff, healthy snacks and New Vic merch to take home.

THE DUKE ON 42ND STREET

Located inside the New 42nd Street Studios building, The Duke on 42nd Street is home to New Victory programming that requires a more intimate space.

THE NEW 42ND STREET STUDIOS

Located just down the block from The New Victory Theater, the New 42nd Street Studios host New Vic shows geared towards our youngest audience members.
