Rita Papillo- The Pash
A woman has an unexpected encounter with a stranger on a spontaneous night out, sparking an introspective journey and unleashing a renewed freedom to see and be herself. Set amongst the buzz and vibe of the Adelaide Fringe, The Pash is a fun, fast-paced, multi–layered story, combining humour and pathos. The play subtly explores grief and loss and human connectivity, in a society where currency and visibility are age specific.
"Her debut production …but Mama, do you love me? was a sell-out success at the 2010 Adelaide Fringe, a fitting tribute to her considerable talents and determination as a playwright, director, and producer. Her second, critically acclaimed production, If the Walls Could Talk... combined commedia dell'arte with contemporary physical theatre techniques. The script was fast paced and moved the audience between moments of extreme pathos and hilarity, a wonderful experience for any theatre goer!" Lucy Combe, SA Playwrights
Tracy Crisp - An Evening with the Vegetarian Librarian.
She might be a vegetarian, but she's also the Gen-X meat in the inter-generational sandwich of the modern workplace. A mostly true, slightly made-up tale of thwarted ambition, underachievement, and a funeral in a library. A meditation on reading and an ode to life before the device.
Sold out at the Adelaide Fringe, An Evening with the Vegetarian Librarian once again brings Tracy Crisp's trademark blend of poignancy and humour to the stage.
"...clever, beautifully written...the booming laughter a testament to Crisp's unique craft." Isabella Fowler, The Advertiser
