Award-winning author, Oliver Mol's debut is a true, funny and heartbreaking tale about a 10-month migraine, his recovery in Brisbane and job on the railway when he couldn't do anything else. Performed to music by Thomas Gray & Liam Ebbs, Seekae and Nils Frahm, amongst others, and to visuals by Kat Chellos, it is a story of hope, laughter, pain, relationships, drugs, failed orgies, mothers, fathers and love. Ultimately, it's about f**king up and figuring it out and f**king up and finding out you're not alone.

"King of a New Jungle" Rolling Stone.

"(Oliver Mol) ... captures the essence of youth" Sydney Morning Herald.

★★★★★ "Oliver performed in the green room after our gig in Barcelona. Wild and special. The a**hole made me cry. See this or die" Clarence McGuffie, Confidence Man.
