We are about to embark on our most ambitious and exciting tour yet! Over four months, during the Canadian Fringe Festival season we will be touring to seven Fringe Festivals in seven different cities, presenting two of our biggest shows and having the Summer of our lives!
We can’t wait to reunite with all our Fringe Family and make some new pals along the way!
As always, you can find updates on both shows (as well as Captain Spaceship) on all our socials media sites @weepingspoon, please “follow us” and be on the lookout for ticket giveaways and exclusive content.
Join Captain Spaceship (Esther Longhurst) and her crew of intergalactic riff-raff as they travel through time and space exploring the cosmos, discovering new uncharted worlds and narrowly avoid copyright infringement.
Inspired by 1950’s Sci-fi serials, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Firefly, Red Dwarf and 90210, the Captain and her crew will make up their ongoing epic adventures live onstage aided by the audience’s suggestions. They could end up anywhere and anyWHEN and will have only their sharp improv skills, some cheap costumes and maybe some lasers to defend themselves!
Featuring members of Perth’s own improv-comedy institution The Big HOO-HAA! And the cast of the multi-award-winning FRANKIES, this is going to be one of the hot comedy tickets this Fringe season!
We are very excited that after months of planning not one but TWO productions of The Ballad Of Frank Allen will be opening worldwide this July. Original Australian cast members Shane and St John will be taking their production to Sydney as part of Bondi Feast while American theatre company Plan B Productions present their own take on the work (re-titled The Man In My Beard) as Part of The KC Fringe all the way over in Kansas.
We’re so incredibly proud of this show and we are always happy to see it reach new audiences around the world.
