Casey then played a lead role in Red Stitch's tour of Desert, 6:29pm by Morgan Rose at the 2018 Wuzhen Theatre Festival in China. The show enjoyed a largely successful sold out season.

Maude Davey). The Australian called it "a joyous, enlivening, life-affirming fireball of a thing, an-all-too rare reminder that theatre can outmuscle any art form."

Casey has recently been accepted to the internationally renown Ecole Philippe Gaulier (Theatre School). This will see Casey travel to France in October where he will study several dramatic disciplines under Philippe Gaulier.
