Ep 63 – Burnout Paradise, Staunch ASF

It’s Fringe Mania! Phil and I saw a whole bunch of shows at the best festival of the year and it felt good. Really good. We watched young people sweat and work and contemplate late capitalism from their treadmills in Ponycam’s Burnout Paradise. In intermission we chat the sublime A Dodgeball Named Desire by The Bloomshed and Fringe Theatre Winner Someday We’ll Find It. Our second act takes us to Meat Market where we saw the lyrical and accomplished work Staunch ASF. In Coming Soon we chat Little One’s Theatre swan song Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, (now over) Sydney Theatre Company’s The Visitors and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? at Red Stitch. If you value our podcast please tell a friend and get them to add it! Our listens are now non-existent and we’re wondering if we still keep going? Love Carla, Phil and Ron.

Ep 60 – Animal Farm, This is Living

HELLO PIGGIES. We get down and dirty with The Bloomshed and their meltingly good ⁠Animal Farm⁠. In Intermission we discuss the Venn overlap between this and Barbie. Our second act takes us to the Malthouse for ⁠This is Living⁠ – Ash Flanders ode to chronically ill queers who want to run away to the country (Carla was ATTACKED). And in Coming Soon we recommend the ⁠Pulse⁠ program at Melbourne Fringe and the ⁠REWIRE⁠ program at Geelong Arts Centre. This was a truly joyous return to form, and felt like the before time with a little more existential death rattle thrown in. Our favourite! Long live queer irony as the pathway to pleasure and salvation. Connect with us on twitterfacebookinstagram and our website.
