Tina C - Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word
Theatrical innovator and multi award-winning comedian Christopher Green brings his wonderfully outrageous character, Tina C, to the Malthouse stage for the very first time.
Country music superstar and global icon for the American way of life, Tina C has been to Australia a bunch of times and has figured out that there's some stuff to work out between the older and newer inhabitants of this country. And she's the woman to make it happen, using the obvious tool - the healing power of country music.
Accompanied by acclaimed aboriginal country musician, Auriel Andrew OAM, this cutting edge political satire will undoubtedly inform, provoke and inspire its audience.
Winner of the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment and a BBC Radio 4 favourite, Christopher Green has gained global recognition for his exceptional ability to fuse serious, scathing content with biting humour. Fresh from scoring a major hit in London, with his interactive and immersive theatre show Office Party (co-created with La Clique’s/ La Soiree’s Ursula Martinez), Christopher will take up position with The British Library as their first ever Artist in Residence in January 2012.
No stranger to a global audience, Christopher Green’s Tina C first ignited controversy in 2002 with the highly acclaimed Tina C's Twin Towers Tribute, which toured many venues and festivals worldwide from Edinburgh to New Zealand via Europe and the US. This was the first comedy to tackle the tragedy of 9/11, surprising audiences and critics alike with its astute humane entertainment.
This is a show that will tax your brain and break your heart, it may make you look at this issue through new eyes, and even leave you with a feeling of resounding optimism! Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word is a challenging evening of theatre, wrapped up in warmth and humour.
