Master storyteller Alirio Zavarce plays Loco, his own out-of-control alter ego, and in side-splitting, heartbreaking detail, chronicles his real life descent into genuine madness. From his troubled migrant past, to the breakdown of a relationship, to the agonising death of a parent, this is deeply immersive theatre at its beautiful, funny and unsettling best – a welcome change to lose yourself in somebody else’s madness.
Winner of Best Theatre Production at the 2013 Adelaide Fringe Festival Awards.
“The Book of Loco is funny and loving and ultimately lets the craziness of grief hurt a little less.”
“Zavarce delivers a surgically incisive, at times heartbreakingly poignant and resoundingly beautiful exploration of the world in all its rational madness.”
