Winner: BEST THEATRE ADELAIDE-FRINGE-06.

The Multi-Award Winning UK comedy, Angry Young Man, makes a welcome return to the Adelaide Fringe after a seven year absence.

Instead he meets Patrick, a young man offering help, friendship and a trip to the heart of the English countryside. But what they find there reveals some cold truths about England. And what Yuri discovers about Patrick forces him to choose between a life in Britain and his honour.

Blue Fruit Theatre Presents

Agnes of God

SA/UK theatre

@The Arch

Agnes of God is a dramatic story of a young nun who is accused of murdering her new born baby. A court appointed psychiatrist, Dr Martha Livingstone, is sent to assess her sanity however her investigation is complicated by the interference of the Mother Superior. The interrogations which follow force all involved to re-examine the meaning of faith and the power of love, leading to a dramatic and compelling climax.

The play was a major hit on Broadway; described by the New York Times as an 'outstanding play' that 'deals intelligently with questions of religion and psychology', the NY Daily News as 'riveting, powerful and electrifying' and The New York Post as ‘unquestionably blindingly theatrical’. It was also made into a film of the same name starring Jane Fonda, Anne Bancroft and Meg Tilly and was nominated for three Academy Awards and won a Golden Globe.

Despite being written in 1979, the issues it raises of faith, understanding, tolerance and compassion are extraordinarily relevant to society today.

With an outstanding cast and director, this play will stay with you long after the lights come up.

“Riveting, powerful and electrifying” - New York Daily News

Season: 2 Mar at 4pm, 24-25, 27 Feb, 1, 4-6 Mar at 6:30pm, 23 Feb, 3 Mar at 8pm, 26 Feb, 7-9 Mar at 9:30pm

Sodid Svid Theatre Company Present

Breaker

Iceland/Scotland theatre

@The Arch

A remote island full of mythical tales, childhood memories and a recent horrific event is the setting for the local woman and the city boy, forced to confront their prejudices. Breaker is a brilliantly poetic new Icelandic play translated into English; moving, delicate and powerfully performed.

The production brings together Scottish and Icelandic artists to create a dynamic piece of theatre which plays on traditions of storytelling and the human tendency to seek reason and explanations in a world which so often defies our need for order.

Cast: Julie Austin and Mark Wood

Melbourne Cabaret Festival Presents

Candice McQueen: Nasty!

UK cabaret

@The Studio

London cabaret star Spanky appears for the first time in Adelaide for a performance of his/her hit show ‘Candice McQueen: Nasty!’

Spanky held a seven-year residency at London’s infamous Bistrotheque and has performed for three British Prime Ministers and had private bookings at the request of Elton John and Alexander McQueen.

Spanky’s alter-ego, the immortal demi-goddess Candice McQueen, is a Mr Sister who has partied her way around the world for thousands of years. She has a heart of ice. It's her weak spot. So she's like Samson with a superior weave. The show is a comedy-cabaret about Candice falling in love with a fallen 90s screen idol and the journey to save both their lives weaving 90s pop culture and fashion.

Its premiere at the 2012 Melbourne Cabaret Festival was universally acclaimed by audiences, reviewers and peers, with a Herald Sun reviewer uncharacteristically dropping an f-bomb on twitter, exclaiming “That was fucked up & brilliant & funny & beautiful.”

Season: 3-4 Mar at 9pm, 1-2 Mar at 10.15pm

3 of A Kind Productions Pty Ltd

Gravity Boots

SA comedy

@The Arch

Sixty-Six million years ago the Dinosaur Chieftains wrote a book that was lost in magma; but that is neither here nor there. Surreal stories, wonderfully weird creatures and a live dog… maybe… no. Directed by Paul Foot, Gravity Boots’ new show is the tale of two travellers, sort of.

Adelaide-born, surreal comedy act Gravity Boots are a pair of story mechanics who together with their guitarist, grow and perform visual chestnuts for people to come and laugh at. James Lloyd-Smith and Michael Cleggett are the two young men who concoct and perform the absurdist tales while Austin Harrison-Bray leaks out the rich chocolate score.

Gravity Boots create weird and charming worlds, populated by outlandish characters. They unleashed their storybook style of theatrical comedy for the first time at the 2011 Adelaide Fringe Festival and made their international debut last year at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Their new show Snakes Pretending to be Seatbelts is the next instalment in the Gravity Boots’ wet sack of shows. Under the direction of UK comedian Paul Foot, who jumped on board after seeing the group shake their candy in Edinburgh, Snakes Pretending to be Seatbelts displays the quivering heart of Gravity Boots: ridiculous lies, performed as insane truth.

Stories, songs and thousands of snakes, falling from the ceiling. The new show from Gravity Boots is for those who wish to see something they have never seen before.

‘Utterly bizzare…yet gloriously entertaining’ Festival Freak, 2012

Season: 5 Mar at 8pm. 6-7, 13-14 Mar at 8pm. 8-10, 16 Mar at 8pm. 15 Mar at 9.30pm. 12 Mar at 8pm

Set and performed inside a caravan to an intimate audience of 5 people at a time, this show takes you up-close to the lives of two unknown travellers.

Melbourne Dance Theatre Presents

Madam Butterfly

VIC dance

@The Studio

It is love, passion, promises, and a full scale betrayal where Butterfly executes her final metamorphosis with the help of the Katana blade. One of the world’s best-loved operas, Puccini’s Madame Butterfly transcends its frontiers into a rich display of contemporary dance and neo expressionist dance.

Madame Butterfly explores the depths of the human heart where love & passion are birthed and bred, ultimately climaxing into promises of complete and total surrender of the heart, mind & soul of one person to the other in a moment in time, and then the downhill plunging into full scale betrayal where Butterfly ultimately executes her final metamorphosis. Madame Butterfly takes her audiences on a roller-coaster journey of human emotions, soaring to the highest pinnacle and then plunging to a fatal end.

With Madame Butterfly, choreographers Martin & Michelle Sierra have assembled a diverse cast of performing artists that embrace a choreography rich with virtue, sensibility, grace, intrigue and challenge and spoken in a language of skilled aerial partnering, expressionism and a fusion of contemporary dance disciplines. Melbourne Dance Theatre’s performance of Madame Butterfly is an innovative new work produced especially for the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Most engaging…..It offered a texture of human necessity, and well served the themes of the pieceDance Informa 2011

The show was amazing, the dancers had the ability to draw you in to their world

Room Two Presents

Ménage À Trois

SA cabaret

@The Arch

Although widely known as the king of instruments, to many nowadays the organ is considered no more than just a curiosity in grandma’s lounge room and something from a bygone era. This is about to change at the 2013 Adelaide Fringe Festival, as ‘Ménage à Trois – Two Girls, A Guy and his Organ’ breathe fresh life into this versatile and most musical of instruments.

Featuring an original Hammond C3 electronic organ and Leslie Speaker, both circa 1974,

Carolyn Ferrie, Rosanne Hosking and Chris McPhee have got stage experience aplenty and are all well qualified to inject some energy and fun into the heart of this organ.

With a menagerie of classics from the stage, pop, jazz and beyond, audiences will see how an organ, when played with passion, can thrust itself into the depths of any song, and create more than just a little excitement.

Carolyn Ferrie and Rosanne Hosking have both been treading Australia’s music theatre boards for over twenty years. With professional productions of “Phantom of the Opera”,

“Cats”, “South Pacific”, “The Secret Garden” and “Next to Normal” among their show credits, these girls have got personality and pizzazz!

They are teamed with one of Australia’s premier organists, Chris McPhee – a performer regularly in demand across Australia and overseas.

So, get ready to be teased and seduced as these girls pull out all stops to win the affection of one man....and his organ.

The Moor Rose Presents

Moorish!

SA music

@The Box

Ever heard bouzouki and cello together? How about a sweeping melodic line in a Moorish-influenced instrumental or an epic cello solo in a Roots-infused song? Well-crafted and distinct in the fusing of musical styles, The Moor Rose creates something special when they play...

Formed in 2011, The Moor Rose combines the tunes of talented, self-taught

multi-instrumentalist (guitar, bouzouki, flute, percussion), and songwriter Stuart Rose, accompanied by the powerful, moving tones of classically-trained cellist and bass player David Rose. Though they are not related by blood, together they play a blend of Acoustic Folk, Roots, Jazz and World Music, with beautiful songs and sensational instrumentation.

Stuart Rose, being a self-taught musician (“unclassically untrained”, he muses), his intuitive & improvisational style creates uniquely soulful music. Whether performing as a solo artist, in the duo The Moor Rose, or as a session musician, he is acclaimed for the warmth and richness of his music. As a journeyman through many different genres of music, Stuart now finds joy in blending musical styles & genres, developing fusions that cross between East & West; influenced by Celtic, Indian, Arabic, Spanish & African traditions. He brings a diverse & dynamic palate of sounds to his performances – including Adelaide Fringe 2010 & 2012, Garden of Unearthly Delights 2011, Tour Down Under and WOMADelaide 2007.

Recognisable for his unruly hair, David Rose has a passion for music and a repertoire spanning over three decades of eclectic performances. From hauntingly beautiful improvisations to session work with established artists, David’s incredible “feel” for the groove takes the listener on a journey of discovery. Festival appearances and gigs, such as the Port Fairy Folk Festival, Adelaide Fringe and support spots with Tex Perkins, Jeff Lang and Damien Leith, provide an outlet for David’s ongoing musical exploration.

Stuperstition

ZA magic/illusion

@The Studio

Sleight of hand expert Stuart Lightbody takes a controversial and entertaining look at modern superstitions. This award winning show is filled with psychological illusions, impossible feats, and thought provoking demonstrations.

Stuart Lightbody finds himself in the strangely paradoxical position of performing illusions while encouraging scepticism; in “Stuperstition” he takes a candid shot at psychics, mediums, astrology and faux medicine, all the while weaving his own brand of magical entertainment. The show is filled with psychological illusions, impossible feats and thought provoking demonstrations.

They say that seeing is believing; well seeing this show will make that unbelievable. Prepare to have your mind blown!

Stuart is both a graduate from and lecturer at the College of Magic in Cape Town, South Africa. At the 2005 S.A. Magic Championships he won the Grand Prix Trophy, becoming theSouth African National Magic Champion. He has represented South Africa at the World Magic Seminarin Las Vegas in 2005 and at theWorld Magic Championships in Sweden in 2006.
