Adelaide Fringe Shows to See

2016-02-10T09:10:47+00:00February 10th, 2016|

G’day all! We’re are absolutely buzzing to be here in Australia and are so excited for the Adelaide Fringe Festival to kick off!!

We arrived in Adelaide to beautiful accommodation after two wickedly long flights that were full movies, food and sleep. We’ve spent today rehearsing the show, creating a special Adelaide edition of Dinosaur Park, taking breaks to read up on the awesome shows we’ve discovered in the Adelaide Fringe Brochure!

Here is a quick list of the shows we’ve picked out, they all look like real crackers. There are some shows in there we’ve seen before and can’t wait to see again, along with some new shows from companies whose work we know and trust, as well as some new things that really piqued our interest.

Enjoy! And let us know what you have seen/want to see that’s worth checking out on twitter at @superboltplays
We love a good theatre tip!

Maria and Frode loved this show a few years back in Edinburgh they say “it’s full of sexy talent and an absolutely great night out!”

Smoking apples and Dogfish (some excellent puppet theatre making friends) recommended this to us. They say it’s awesome, so we’ll be there with bells on.

Penny Arcade: Longing Lasts Longer
Heard great things about her show while it was at SOHO theatre.

The Bunker Trilogy
Simon went to Uni with the guy behind these shows, and they’ve been an absolute smash hit in Edinburgh, so check them out.

Yeti’s Daemon Dive Bar
Frode & Ina loved the work of the multi-award-winning cult comedy duo, EastEnd Cabaret, in Edinburgh and can’t wait to see their new show.

The Flanagan Collective – Sherlock Holmes: A Working Hypothesis
This is another recommendation from Simon, he says this will be a cracker.

The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer
Maria loved this when she saw it in Edinburgh, “it’s a real beauty”
@AlvinSputnik

Stuart Bowden: She Was Probably Not a Robot
Tid saw this in Edinburgh and absolutely loved it. Quirky skillful storytelling at its best.
@StuartBowden

The Element in the Room: A Radioactive Musical Comedy About the Life and Death of Marie Curie
Tangram have made some awesome shows that many of us have enjoyed in Edinburgh, they are also fellow Lecoq alumni.
@TangramTheatre

What Would Spock Do?
Tid and Maria saw this show in Edinburgh this year. It’s a really great piece of storytelling, hilarious and moving. Lovely writing, expertly performed.

Duckie
Most of us missed Le Gateau Chocolat’s show in Edinburgh last time but everyone who’d seen it couldn’t recommend him more highly. This cabaret re-imagining of the children’s classic, The Ugly Duckling, looks to be something genuinely special.
@LeGateauChoc

Oh and we found our lovely new Adelaide flyer too!
