Government special adviser Elliot has a problem: his two girlfriends are giving birth on the same day in the same hospital. To keep his infidelities a secret, he needs the reluctant support of overworked midwife, Liz, but things are much more complicated than even Elliot can imagine.
Fast-paced, farcical and hilariously funny, with every line rapped, Dawn Again is a unique theatrical experience.
It was written by Claudio Elliston, aka Cloudy Clouds, a rapper who was inspired to create a hip-hopera for the stage after the success of his short rap opera for the screen, Uber Pool.
A finalist in the 2022 LET (Les Enfants Terribles) Awards for “exceptional, emerging artists”, Dawn Again is directed by Claudio’s sister, Rafaela Elliston.
Actor and theatre-maker Rafaela explains: “My job is to take Claudio’s witty lyrics and zany ideas and to use clever set design, creative choreography and the audience’s imagination to put together a mixed-up, modern-day farce for fringe theatre.”
If you find awkward, bungling characters in preposterous situations funny, Dawn Again will have you roaring with laughter.

This unique rap opera told solely in rhyme, is definitely worth a visit.
