Straight from a sell out season at the Sydney Opera House, Tim Ross and Kit Warhurst are thrilled to perform their hit show at Torbreck Building in Brisbane.
For the last five years they have taken temporary possession of architecturally significant buildings and skillfully blended comedy, storytelling, music and design in a mold breaking format that has seen them literally sell out houses across the globe.
Following rave reviews for the recent film series, Streets of Your Town, Tim and Kit welcome you to the iconic Torbreck Building by AH Job and RP Froud.

Torbreck is a company-titled multi-storeyed home unit development and a prominent landmark visible from many places in Brisbane. It was designed by Brisbane architects AH Job and RP Froud and comprises two stages; a low rise Garden Block to Chermside Street and a high rise Tower Block to Dornoch Terrace.
Torbreck was erected in 1958-1960 by NA Kratzmann Pty Ltd, one of the largest building contractors in Queensland by the late 1950s. The eight-storeyed garden block was constructed using the lift-slab technique, whereby the roof and floors were prefabricated on the ground, then hoisted into position by jacks mounted on the vertical wall supports. This construction technique had not been used in Queensland before. The fourteen-storeyed tower block was erected along more conventional lines.
