  • Alone Outside | 2018 Melbourne Fringe Festival

    North MelbourneTheatre | September 14 - 29, 2018

    Following their success with A Prudent Man in 2016, Lab Kelpie return to Fringe with this powerful one-woman play by West Australian playwright Liz Newell that explores the conflict, awkwardness and nostalgia of returning home.

    Having just broken up with her long-time boyfriend, Daphne reluctantly returns from The Big Smoke to the tiny country town she grew up in to visit her ailing grandmother.

    Experiencing run-ins with a revolving door of people she hasn’t seen in years, Daphne eventually reconnects with former best-mate Aidan, sharing a long-held secret that finally brings her the sense of clarity she hadn’t realised she’d been missing.

    A meditation on the concept of 'home' that examines the places and people that continually call us back – whether we like it or not – Alone Outside is a moving and ultimately uplifting look at the fraught paths we walk towards self-acceptance.

    '... Newell's ability to create intimate character arcs is a skill that has clearly been developed with great care.' - Isolated Nation

    Written by Liz Newell
    Performed by Sharon Davis
    Directed by Lyall Brooks
    Sound Design by Grace Ferguson
    Produced by Adam Fawcett
    Presented by Lab Kelpie

  • Theatresports™ 2018

    PrahranTheatre | September 23 - November 25, 2018

    Let the games begin! Impro Melbourne’s Theatresports™ season is a high energy, no holds-barred sporting theatrical combo that everyone will enjoy.
    A coveted place in the Grand Final is up for grabs and the competition is fierce, forcing teams of improvisors to run all kinds of risks in the pursuit of impro glory.

    Stories take unexpected turns. Drama flips to comedy. A throwaway line makes you think. Over the course of the evening three judges score the matches but in the special Danish round it’s the audience who decide the winners.

    It’s a thrilling, hilarious, family friendly night out. Kids will love it and so will Nana. Your workmates and the uni friends you haven’t seen for ages will love it too. Booing and cheering in a theatre? It must be Theatresports.™
