VIEWING MELBOURNE FRINGE 2018
SO MUCH INDIE THEATRE
Featuring a group of flawed and edgy characters, this show explores the 'real news topics' we talk about every day, and the complicated lives of those who present them.
Written from personal experience, this dramedy looks at what it’s like to be a young woman who’s not healthy but not dying, and the friendship that can be fostered through shared experience.
Creatures of the Deep
Be taken on a journey beneath the surface to meet a plethora of beautiful, wild sea creatures - all the while following the path of a plastic bag as it gets carried to the very depths of the ocean.
Fleur and Alexandra are Out of this World
Fleur and Alexandra are hapless unemployed heroes. After getting a job working for The Sun, they encounter Gaia who has just discovered the World Turtle is missing and tasks them to recover it.
Baby Bi Bi Bi
A wickedly funny, often filthy cabaret about being a bisexual woman.
Age of Stephen
If you're a Farnsey Fanatic like Stephen, get ready for a night of unforgettable music, stories and laughs in a loving tribute to the greatest voice our country has ever produced.
A centuries-old stone gargoyle atop a church is struck by lightning and falls into the river below. By some unknown miracle he is granted life.
Lulu Venom and Suckabelle create a high-femme-queer-dream world on the stage, blurring the lines between passive and-power; beauty-and terror; and embodying the duality of high-femme existence.
Justin, a young, anxiety ridden gay man, grooms and groans for a first date. He’s nervous and very out of practice so what else can he do but call his best friend for advice.
Funerals With Phoebe
We are all going to die sometime, but have you considered your funeral? Phoebe has planned hers, and will share her musical ideas and challenge yours, so you can have the funeral you’d die for.
Based on interviews and first person accounts conducted by Nicola and Sandy, this comedy cabaret features original music by Josh Cake and covers eight decades of wars, diplomatic parties, marriages, and secret lives.
A Rose Among Horns
A comedy of games, risks and the archaic notion of Prince Charming in a world where chivalry is dead and even the men want to be rescued.
Death and Other Things
Follow Eidann and her musical vanguard, as she recounts death-adjacent stories of revenge, grief, power, joy, relief, and mystery.
We Can Work It Out
Fierce, funny and poignant, We Can Work It Out is the account of something that probably never happened but very easily could have.
STOCK TAKE: Bitches in Business
If power is the ability to speak bullsh*t and get away with it, these boss bitches are omnipotent. It’s like the Mighty Boosh, Ab Fab and Get Crackin’ started running Ernst & Young.
Sweaty Pits - Pity Party!
Two friends leave the roundabouts of Canberra to follow their dreams of creating a sketch show that encapsulates their messages of equality, frustration, and love... while still being incredibly silly.
