We’re very excited to announce that our show THE BALLAD OF FRANK ALLEN has just won the Just For Laughs (Best Comedy) Award at the 2017 Montreal Fringe Festival. We are hugely honoured to have been in such incredible company! Thanks to all who supported out show in Montreal, please spread the word!

WEEPING SPOON RETURN TO FRINGE WORLD IN 2017!

We are super excited to finally announce not one, but TWO shows we are co-producing at the 2017 Fringe World Festival!

We’re teaming up with Variegated Productions to bring back an Improv-Allsorts favourite! Ramshackle & Kitsch is the lovechild of Starsky & Hutch and The Mighty Boosh, a manic comedy based on audience suggestions and the finest of buddy cop traditions.

Ramshackle is an old school detective – a veteran who does what needs to be done to get the right man behind bars.Kitsch is new on the team – a wide-eyed hipster who is as equally excited about the job as being distracted by puppies wearing shiny collars.

Following previous fringe-hits Vicious Circles and The Ballad Of Frank Allen, we’re teaming up again with Montreal’s Stadium Tour Theatre Company to make the world debut of our new show THEM GOOD OL’ BOYS as part of The Blue Room Theatre’s Summer Nights season.

February 2, 1959. Clear Lake, Iowa. Four Musicians. This is Buddy Holly’s final chapter.

Them Good Ol’ Boys brings us back to the last moments of Buddy Holly as he struggles to regain control of his life, his music and his career, all in the middle of frozen Midwest nowhere, USA. Join Waylon Jennings in this chronologically impaired journey as we spy through his eyes and memories on Buddy’s last night, with a faint Echo of love, loss, nostalgia and survivor guilt. This is rock and roll. This is the day the music died.

Help Weeping Spoon Indiegogo to The Adelaide Fringe

WEEPING SPOON PRODUCTIONS (That’s us) is taking our latest (and arguably strangest) show on the road in 2016. THE BALLAD OF FRANK ALLEN  is all about a tiny man who lives in another man’s beard and we are taking it to the 2016 Adelaide Fringe Festival, the second biggest fringe festival in the world!

We need YOUR help to fund our tour to The Adelaide Fringe. Touring a show is tricky and expensive and your contribution to our campaign will help us pay for flights, accommodation, publicity and venue hire costs throughout the festival.There, we will be performing for fringe audiences (our favourite kinda crowds!) as well as showcasing the show to producers, judges and festival directors who can help us take FRANK ALLEN further around the globe in the future.

We are aiming to raise at least $2000, which although a fraction of our total costs, would aid us greatly in our tour to Adelaide. Anything you can do to help us out (even if it’s spreading the word of our indiegogo page) is greatly appreciated. Really, we mean it, we love you!

In return for your generosity,  we are offering a number of unique and exclusive perks including:

  • A very limited edition, signed print of our beautiful TRAMPOLINE tour poster
  • A special edition soundtrack of THE BALLAD OF FRANK ALLEN which will be available to our indiegogo supporters only
  • Tickets to the show/a future Weeping Spoon Production
  •  An exclusive Perth performance of FRANK ALLEN or one of our past shows
  • A hand-made FRANK ALLEN knitted beard!
  • and MORE!

So please check out our Indiegogo page and help us keep making awesome independent theatre!

Weeping Spoon 2016!

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!
