3 Jul

Your name: Mark Brownell

Your production: Three Men on a Bike

Your role: Playwright

Tell me about your show.

Being the further adventures of three Victorian gentlemen caught up in the Great European Bicycling Craze! Join Jay, George and Harris as they tour to the continent on their new velocipedic machines. Witness THRILLS and SPILLS! (since “the brake” hasn’t quite been perfected yet.)

Based on the further writings of Victorian author Jerome K. Jerome, THREE MEN ON A BIKE is the sequel to Pea Green’s wildly successful Three Men in a Boat (NNNNN – NOW Magazine).

Campaign advertising for the upcoming federal election is replaced by one-person Fringe shows performed by the party leaders. Tickets are free so you can attend any show without necessarily being a supporter of the performer or their party. Whose show do you go see, what is it called, and what is the show about in a nutshell?

I would totally go to see “Suddenly Scheer!” – a one-person BYOV starring Andrew Scheer as an ultra-conservative party leader who wakes up one morning to discover that he has magically transformed into a radical trans activist. Only one problem: Will Doug Ford approve? (60 minutes. Audience Warning: Gun shots and strobe light.)

What other shows or artists are you looking forward to seeing?

We love work adapted from classical sources so we are looking forward to Molly Bloom at the Helen Gardiner.
