You’ll Never Guess Where I Hid The Cheese
Monday 30 September 2019 – 1 pm
BOBBI & WANDA ARE SUPERHEROES.
THEY’RE HERE TO DEFEAT THE EVIL MR. CHEESEHEAD.
BUT FIRST THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE A SNACK.
AND MAYBE A NAP.
“100 out of 10” – Finnley (age 8)
“I haven’t laughed so hard in all of the comedy festival.”
YOU’LL NEVER GUESS WHERE I HID THE CHEESE is a clown show. It’s Freddy Mercury with a cheesehead, extravagantly mimed escapes and lots of cheesy portmanteaus (“it’s a travescheese!”). Next to all this, it’s Steve Meagher on the keys, making the full range of kooky sound effects and musical wonders on a Korg R3 synthesizer.
The “out-of-the-ordinary” (The Plus Ones) Debbie Zukerman and “superb” (Adelaide Theatre Guide) Alicia Gonzalez are joined by Steve Meagher, and together they’ll take you on an adventure into the heart of Cheese.
$11 each or $40 Group of 4
Wednesday 9 October – 7 pm
A new Australian black comedy about all manners of love, family dysfunction, prosthetic breasts, and making the best of lousy situations. Tackles key health issues of breast cancer and dementia, wrapped in an accessible, warm and uplifting domestic drama. There are laughs along the way, tears and moments of sheer joy.
“There is no value in life except what you choose to place upon it and no happiness in any place except what you bring to it yourself.” – Henry David Thoreau
At Sunset Strip the only people left are those who couldn’t leave. Arriving home after a bout of chemotherapy to this once thriving summer hot-spot, Caroline finds the lake completely dried up, the holiday-makers long gone.
Yet her younger sister, the ever-optimistic Phoebe, remains doggedly hopeful. Between a stint in rehab, caring for her demented Dad (who has a penchant for training goldfish) and losing her kids temporarily to DOCS, Phoebe has managed to find love in Teddy, a local fallen fella with a big heart. And now that Caroline is back, Phoebe is determined to make life fabulous.
Suzie Miller (Caress/Ache) returns to the Stables to examine all manners of love, family dysfunction and making the best of shitty situations and prosthetic breasts. Directed by Anthony Skuse, Sunset Strip finds the humour in tragedy and creates an unlikely path for humanity to triumph.
Contains use of theatrical haze, smoking of herbal cigarettes and reference to drug use.
Tickets coming soon.
