Life in­spires com­edy

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

The Drouin But­ter Fac­tory will be filled with peo­ple and laugh­ter as “The Com­edy of Life; Speak­ing Alone Two” hits the stage on Satur­day at 7.30pm.

The show is packed with char­ac­ters, sto­ries, com­i­cal sit­u­a­tions and a stack of Gipp­s­land tal­ent.

Fea­tur­ing a cast of all ages, from 18-year-old Hayley Brown through to the com­pany’s se­nior mem­ber Barb Hil­ton, the pro­duc­tion from Trar­al­gon-based “Here There and Ev­ery­where Theatre” at­tempts to make some sense of life.

“This is just a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence and so much fun,” said Hayley. “I get to talk about things that are im­por­tant to me and res­o­nant with my gen­er­a­tion and poke some fun at how crazy the world is some­times.”

“The show is quite top­i­cal, but very funny and just so true,” agreed Barb. “It’s amaz­ing to have my voice rep­re­sented and hope­fully I get to de­liver some wis­dom, but not in a preachy way.”

“There is so much tal­ent and ev­ery­one has worked hard to bring their sto­ries and char­ac­ters to life in an in­ter­est­ing way. It’s go­ing to be a cracker of a show.”

Sea­soned per­former and com­pany as­sis­tant di­rec­tor Krissi Crieghton said it was a highly re­lat­able show with lit­er­ally some­thing for ev­ery­one.

“The show delves into the in­ter­nal con­ver­sa­tions we have, the funny thoughts, the deeper ones, the flashes ev­ery­one has, but we rarely share,” she said.

“The Com­edy of Life tries to make some sense out of things that make no sense; and whilst some as­pects are se­ri­ous, the main aim is to laugh at our­selves, have fun and maybe cre­ate a good con­ver­sa­tion. There’s some­thing for ev­ery­one, and peo­ple are go­ing to be ab­sorbed by the char­ac­ters and real life rep­re­sented, not to men­tion the in­cred­i­ble tal­ent on dis­play.”

Tick­ets to see “The Com­edy of Life; Speak­ing Alone Two” at the Old Drouin But­ter Fac­tory are $25 per per­son.
