Winners of the best Children’s presentation at the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2015 and 2016, and runners up for Children’s Choice Award Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016, the Trash Test Dummies are as full of laughs as their bins are full of surprises. This “delightfully intelligent, highly entertaining” (Herald Sun) family adventure takes the humble household wheelie bin to new heights.

Everyone put your bins out, tonight’s bin night and the Trash Test Dummies are on duty. With side-splitting slapstick comedy, daring acrobatics and dexterous juggling these Dummies are off on an imaginative adventure that is anything but garbage. With ballet and balloons thrown in for good measure, this fast-paced hour of “adept unadulterated mischief” (The Times) delivers a dump truck full of hilarity!
