Mayflies on the Fritz (CANCELLED)

All the emotions wrapped up in three one-act funtastic comedies.

Unfortunately, this show has withdrawn from Wollongong Anywhere Theatre Festival.

Presented by Feargu Manning and Amy Bauder

Mayflies on the Fritz features a selection of one-act plays written by acclaimed American playwright, screenwriter, and novelist David Ives.

These plays are funny and smart, display a love for language, and explore many themes and ideas that cut to the core of history and culture.

The 4pm family show (recommended age 10+) features the mayflies Horace and May grappling with love and how to live a good life, along with Dr Fritz tending to the body and soul of Tom. The 8pm show adds Bill and Betty to the mix –  a couple that the universe wants to be together very badly indeed.

These one-act plays have been selected from David Ives’ two collections “All in the Timing”, and “Mere Mortals”.

David Ives’ plays have been described as “a collection of fast and ferociously funny comedies … a madcap evening of one-acts” , and that Ives has the “gratifying ability to unharness the intoxicating power of language and at the same time entertain.” – New York Times.

These plays are funny and smart, display a love for language, and explore many themes and ideas that cut to the core of what it is to be alive. If you enjoy a laugh, this show is going to offer plenty of them, and also give the ol’ grey matter a bit of a tickle too…

4:00pm show is suitable for ages 10+
