Life inspires comedy
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.
