Each night two hoods ride a train to a wrecking yard on the outskirts of the city.
Here, in this cemetery of stories, they are storytellers with the power to fast forward, pause and rewind.
Tonight, they tell the story of three kids left in a car. 
Rewind. It’s Friday, KFC night and the last day of school before Christmas.
Kyle, Jesse and baby brother Troy are waiting in the car for their mum.
As night approaches the car park takes on a dark and sinister aspect filled with strange and familiar characters.
The shopping centre closes, Mum still hasn’t returned and the baby won’t stop crying.
Hoods is a suburban tale of survival and solidarity against the odds.
The cast of HOODS have now had two weekend consultation visits from Danger Ensemble artistic director, Steven Mitchell Wright to develop their characters and the world that they inhabit.
Audiences will be treated to an edgy exploration of suburban life through a video game aesthetic. Audience numbers are limited to 60 per show to enhance the overall experience of intimacy. Secure your tickets promptly once they are on sale to avoid disappointment.
