FRINGE WORLD 2015

19 01 2015

 

Hey gang. It’s been a while between drinks, but as usual I’ve been busy working behind-the-scenes wearing my Producer’s Hat and I’m so excited to finally launch into 2015 with a bunch of exciting shows at the Fringe World Festival and a new position as Artistic Director of Weeping Spoon Productions.

Firstly, my play TRAMPOLINE returns to Perth for the first time at the Fringe Festival and with two incredible new cast members joining me onstage from Jan 23rd. It’s been a blast having two of my favourite performers, the ridiculously multi-talented Ella Hetherington and Brendan Ewing, help create a really fun, fresh take on the show. Dare I say, the best yet. Tickets on sale here.

saf2I’m also joining my good friends from the States, Sound And Fury for their 2015 Australian Tour, performing in Hamlet and Juliet and Hitchcocked. Be sure to check out their website for tour dates and times at Fringe World and The Adelaide Fringe.

Beyond that I’ll also be in Adelaide with the return of the Blue Room Award winning This Is Not A Love song at Tuxedo Cat. Tegan Mulvany and Greg Fleet are back and joining us this time around is muso Mick Moriarty of GUD and The Gadfly’s fame.

I should also mention I’m (ever so briefly) in the feature film Paper Planes, currently playing across Australia. You should go see it.

IN THE FUTURE…

2015 is looking like it’s going to be a big year for Weeping Spoon. In the second part of this year there’s some big news in regards to Canada and some brand NEW works (plural!) from my brain this year which I am really excited plus some really awesome collaborations about but more on that once I get through Fringe.

Thanks to everyone else involved in my show Trampoline, my Australian/Canadian co-production Vicious Circles and also to Greg Fleet, Tegan Mulvany and team for This Is Not A Love Song.

I am super chuffed, these are three shows I am extremely proud of and it’s always nice to have that work recognized.





Two more “This Is Not A Love Song” reviews

1 09 2014

Our show This Is Not A Love Song is going great guns in Perth and head to Melbourne later this month. Here’s what Australian Stage had to say:

“Greg Fleet’s first theatre play is full of memories, tears, laughter and Good Music… Shane Adamczak is perfect …natural and believable, with comic-dramatic gold … His strong vocal skills work well with the clear sweetness of Tegan Mulvany’s voice as they sing duets. …Not a comedy, but not a kitchen sink drama, either, This is Not a Love Song feels suspiciously autobiographical and peculiarly intimate, providing insights into Greg Fleet’s life and loves, haunting with melodies arranged to tug at the heart strings. “
