A brand-new, all original musical about a hero to root for at the 2018 Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Planted in the background of a royal affair, a tree dreams of growing above and beyond his humble roots. With the help of his nocturnal friend, a catchy beat and a bloodied axe, our titular tree will branch out of his comfort zone towards a life of fame.

Sugar-coated with charm, wit and ridiculous fun, this all-new, all-original musical is the comedy show you never knew you needed, 'til now.
