Two best friends Sven and Sven are renowned Marine Biologists from the future, who have been sent back through time to save their world from the dreaded Plastic Time Monsters. These Monsters have only one goal, the total annihilation of the planet. Will the people of Earth heed Sven and Sven’s message, thus changing the course of history and save their planet’s oceans?

Attack of the Plastic Time Monsters is a well-paced theatrical comedy raising awareness about littering, how our litter is destroying life in the world’s oceans and what students can do to help. There is music, songs, audience participation and along with the laugh out loud comedy, students discover the answers to questions like:-

How many plastic bags do Australians use every day?

How many years does it take for a plastic bag to start to bio-degrade?

What is the average ‘use time’ of a plastic Bag?

And how long does it take Sven and Sven to eat their peanut butter and cheese sandwiches?

These two comedians with their time travel-themed show cleverly wrap laugh out loud moments around surprising facts without lessening the importance of their environmental message.
