Case Numbers

Session Times
Tues – Sat: 8pm

This is a show about a man who’s inherited a locked briefcase.

Written and performed by writer/performer Dylan Cole, Case Numbers is a fascinating meta-thriller that analyses the narrative conventions used in writing. It has no beginning or ending and, while there is a middle, it’s entirely pointless.

Nominated for Best Comedy Award at the 2020 Melbourne Fringe Festival, this MICF premiere season is a gripping and thoroughly entertaining story containing all the twists and turns of a trashy Dan Brown novel, but also the overly complex and confusing narrative of a Christopher Nolan film. It has nothing to do with COVID. So, relax.

It’s about guessing numbers and trying to open a briefcase.
It’s about one man trying to figure out a combination.
It’s about Case Numbers.

A show for comedy lovers who prefer their humour to be witty, well crafted, and very much left of the centre, Case Numbers runs for ten performances only at the CBD’s Greek Centre during the 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Not to be missed, tickets now selling!

Known for his style of combining theatre, comedy, and fictional storytelling, Dylan Cole is a Melbourne-based writer and performer. Previous shows include It All Sparks Joy, The Moon and Me, Safety First, Ned: Ideas You’ll Never Have and Blank Tiles, which had sold-out seasons at the 2017 Adelaide Fringe and Edinburgh Festival Fringe Festival at Assembly, and received multiple five star reviews. 2023 sees the premiere of his latest work, Case Numbers, at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
