Event description

La Trobe Student Theatre and Film presents...

'PTSD - Proposing Tony and Summoning Dinosaurs'

Thursday 5 - Saturday 7 October
Menzies Theatre, La Trobe University

PTSD: Proposing, Tony and Summoning Dinosaurs
follows Ralph as he tries to propose to his girlfriend Frankie while they’re on a camping trip trying to hunt down a dinosaur. After Ralph loses the ring, Tony - despite being on house arrest - does all that he can to make sure the ring gets back to Ralph without ruining the surprise.

The show is a farcical Australian comedy, with a bit of a love story thrown into the mix. The show was first written in 2020 as a 5 minute play to be a part of the Short Works festival, it has had its obstacles getting to the stage due to the pandemic and other out of our control events, but now has been transformed to a full length show.

It’s an original work written and produced at STF.
