So glad to finally announce the first of our big shows for next year!
THE BALLAD OF FRANK ALLEN: A BRAND NEW comedy about a man who lives in another man’s beard!
From the bizarre mind of Fringe-favourite Shane Adamczak (Trampoline, Zack Adams, 3x Canadian Just For Laughs Award Nominee and producer of the Award-winning ★★★★★ Fringe hits This Is Not A Love Song and Vicious Circles) comes a brand new comedy about how even the smallest people can do big things.
Featuring two of WA’s most established Indy Theatre performers; Shane Adamczak and St John Cowcher (The Red Balloon, Farm and The Adventures Of Alvin Sputnik), Weeping Spoon Productions are delighted for their latest work to make it’s world debut as part of the 2016 Fringe World Festival.
We’re super excited to announce that the show will also be touring to The Adelaide Fringe and to Canada for the Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival and Vancouver Fringe Festivals in 2016!
Secondly, following a successful 2015 Canadian Tour, our award-winning fringe show TRAMPOLINE returns once again to make it’s Adelaide Fringe Festival debut.
A Boy meets girl story that’s less than ordinary. TRAMPOLINE is a feel-good comedy that will warm your heart, make you laugh and make you question the very notion of normal!
“This little love story made me feel was something I found myself trying desperately to hold onto hours afterwards. You don’t have to see Trampoline, but I assure you that your Fringe will be much colder and darker without it.” -The Marble
“A perfect dream for creators and audiences alike… Short, sweet, quirky, produced with passion. ✭✭✭✭1/2″ – artsHubs.com.au
“Takes that idea of boy meets girl and turns it on its head… easily one of the funniest plays I have seen in a while” – The AU Review
“This dark comedy is equal parts touching, funny, awkward and sad, and the characters will tug at your heartstrings and refuse to let go.” – Bloodyunderrated.net
It’s going to be a big year here at Weeping Spoon HQ, and this is just the beginning!
