BONUS EP - The Anniversary (behind the scenes)
This is a bonus episode brought to you by the Run the Show Podcast. We chat to the creators Clare Bartholomew & Daniel Tobias about a brand new show about to hit the stage called The Anniversary. Tune in to find out what the show is about, how it came about, what audiences can expect and how to write a non-verbal physical comedy! ON SALE NOW10 - 21 February 2021fortyfivedownstairs, Melbourne, Australia. BOOK HERE: https://fortyfivedownstairs.com/event/the-anniversary You’re invited to Jim & Barb’s golden wedding anniversary! After 50 years of marriage, these Baby Boomers from Balwyn annoy one another so much… they literally want to kill each other. Meanwhile, Greta Thunberg is on the TV telling them that the world is on fire and it’s all their fault. Their comedic dissent into the disappointing abyss of unfulfilled dreams and a mounting fear of ‘what’s outside’ is layered with precision timing, nonsensical absurdity and deadpan delivery. Multi award-winning creators of Die Roten Punkte, Clare Bartholomew and Daniel Tobias are back with a brand new murderously funny physical farce. Think Beckett meets Wallace and Grommit. Since 2006, Clare Bartholomew and Daniel Tobias have been touring their award-winning, irreverent brand of theatre and comedy-cabaret to North America, Europe, New Zealand, and Australia. Together they’ve been nominated for thirteen Greenroom Awards, winning 3 of them, and nominated for a Time Out & Soho Theatre Award and a Total Theatre Award in Edinburgh. Praise for previous work: ★★★★ ‘Intensely funny…a class act!’ The Age ‘The most important element of all is exceptional: the performers.’ The Courier, South Carolina, USA ‘Inspired, brilliantly executed lunacy.’ The Gazette, Montreal See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
