The Saturday Experiment: A Weekend in the Country

The charm of countryside England comes to The Butterfly Club this June for three off-the-cuff sojourns inspired by Downton, Wilde and Coward.

You’re invited to A Weekend in the Country, the new 1920s comedy that’s oh-so chic, oh-so English and oh-so improvised. While you’re here, you’re sure to catch a glimpse of the monied lives of both the landed gentry and their dedicated help. But whether upstairs or downstairs, this cast of characters will find their weekend’s fortunes depend on your suggestions.

Performed by The Big HOO-HAA! Melbourne, A Weekend in the Country promises plenty of social faux pas, barbed witticisms and discreet liaisons… all served in time for tea.

“The wit and skills of these performers were staggering. On-the-spot puns and one-liners come on
thick and fast.” – Weekend Notes
