The Cockburn Incident

  • Centre for Stories 100 Aberdeen Street Northbridge, WA, 6003 Australia (map)

Hot, sweaty, Australian summer. 

The time of year when the smell of SPF 50+ sunscreen reigns supreme. 

When Zooper Doopers monopolise the icy pole industry. 

And you hold weird poses to avoid nasty sweat patches. 

This is the time of year when the incident happens… 

At the beginning of their final year of high school, a massive penis is scorched onto the oval at Cockburn College. The School Captain, Diane, and her BFF, Lucy, go all ‘Murder, She Wrote' on the situation to uncover the culprit. A celebration of friendship and memes,

The Cockburn Incident explores our responsibility in this weird, unpredictable world. 

“Very proud of you." ★★★★★ – Our Mums.
