Oddball teen cousins Ivan and Juniper Plank are putting together a glitzy variety show chronicling the series of extremely unfortunate events that led to the demise of 26 infants. It's a tribute ... of sorts.

Welcome to a weird, warped eisteddfod, where this endearing pair lead you on a brilliantly inventive, wickedly funny journey – in strict alphabetical order, of course – through the short lives of these doomed infants.

The gothic quirkiness of Tim Burton meets the adorable kitsch of Wes Anderson in A Tribute of Sorts. An artful, dark, morbidly funny celebration of the art of theatre itself.

Winner of 4 Matilda Awards including: Best New Australian Work, Best Independent Production, Best Male Actor (Dash Kruck) and Best Female Actor (Emily Burton).
