Enjoy a B-grade thriller from the safety of your own car…

Lit by your headlights, heard through your car radio and seen through your windscreen, this is a drive-in with a difference, brought to you by Helpmann Award-winners The Farm.

A single pane of glass allows us to feel separated from the world outside. It absorbs road rage and shields us when we sing along to the car stereo, but what happens when we’re invaded in that bubble of safety?

The Farm is a movement collective of like-minded artists, whose physical performances share the fragility and strength of the human condition. From traditional theatre and dance to outdoor installations, film and immersive theatrical experiences, The Farm’s leading-edge, critically-acclaimed works aim to defy all expectations and genres.

They’re at it again with Throttle. With co-directors Gavin Webber and Grayson Millwood both behind the wheel, The Farm brings this tyre-squealing show to a drive-in showground-theatre near you.

Scream with delight, dive under the dashboard or grip the hand of your fellow passenger and ignite some fun-fuelled passion. Throttle is like nothing you’ve ever seen before!

Buckle your seatbelts. You’re in for a ride.


At The Farm, work is made in a collaborative process where everyone brings their expertise without being confined to it. All animals are equal.
