Now at Draculas Cabaret “Resurrection” Tuesday-Saturdays from 7pm
Resurrection plays like a greatest hits on scratched vinyl. It brings together the most requested acts of the past decade, revamped with slap-face costumes, retro-now songs, mesmerising special effects and serrated edge comedy. Dracula’s continues to ride the blood wave of reinvention, as the goth punk craze of the ‘80s has transmuted from sulky trash to subversive vamp chic. Just for THEATREPEOPLE, we are doing a Show Only Deal for $60, Tuesday to Friday (subject to availability). Call Draculas to book it in! 03 9340 2600
Dracula’s is rated MA15+. You will experience: loud live music, partial nudity, unrestrained comedy, wild staff and supernatural themes.
Creative team Short Straw is pleased to announce the upcoming season of their debut show Amnesia: a black comedy which plays on themes of gender roles, morality and murder in an age of internet dating.
British Director Hannah Smallman tackles the Australian stage for the first time in this production, having previously worked on such shows as Back of the Throat; winner of Timeout Magazines Critic’s Choice Award. She teams with Australian writer and producer Clancy Fraser, whose recent works include black comedy Blackout and historical drama The Last Romanov.
Amnesia takes comedy to its blackest place yet when Lucy (South African actress Jeni Bezuidenhout) finds herself on a blind date with could-be killer Aaron (Palmer Marchese). The night only grows more complicated as the trapped duo bitterly debate Aaron’s possible motives and Lucy’s willingness to do whatever it takes to put him behind bars.
Covering everything from bad ex-boyfriends and perjury to head wounds and Hannibal Lecter, Amnesia pulls no punches as it nears its shocking end.
Running over two consecutive weekends from August 18th to 27th at Longplay in Fitzroy North, Amnesia promises to be a performance to remember.
