Brisbane Festival and King Street present

Bedtime Stories


17 - 19 Sept | Secret Location on King Street - Meet at The Tivoli



Australian Exclusive

It was a dark and lonesome night…

Meet Lilly, a precocious young girl, her father, Max, and doting grandfather, George – both master storytellers. Every night before bed, Lilly enters a fantastical universe created just for her, where she encounters a host of strange and menacing creatures…

Think of the fantastical tales your parents used to read to you in bed when you were a child, and then imagine them coming to life in a secret location. That’s the innovative experience that URLAND, a performance collective from the Netherlands, aims to create for guests at Bedtime Stories in this coming-of-age live radio play performed by Thomas Dudkiewicz.

Laugh, squirm and dream along as Bedtime Stories catapults towards its unexpected ending, keeping you on edge from scene to scene.


This performance contains adult themes. Suitable for audiences 16+ years.

URLAND is a performance-collective. URLAND works autonomously. URLAND knows no hierarchy, there is no director. URLAND designs the set. URLAND creates the sound. URLAND writes the text. URLAND is on stage. URLAND experiments. URLAND refers, quotes and samples. URLAND sees technology as a means, not an end. URLAND believes in live art in digital times.

URLAND has partnered with Theater Rotterdam for a multi-annual collaboration. URLAND is made possible by Gemeente Rotterdam and Fonds Podiumkunsten.
