The Last Tuesday Society presents Pimp My Play- A Streetcar Named Desire


The Last Tuesday Society proudly presents ‘Pimp My Play’ at the 2012 Melbourne Fringe Festival

Step 1: Take a boring old play

Step 2: Divide up the scenes amongst the “collaborating artists” (ie people roped in at the last minute)

Step 3: Put all the pieces back together in order

Step 4: Present theatrical equivalent of Frankenstein to horrified/delighted audience

The work getting the PMP treatment this time? Tennessee Williams’ ‘A Streetcar Named Desire’. ¬†The ‘Stellahhhh!’ one.

Will a story get told? We don’t know

Will the audience achieve catharsis? Probably not

Will Alison Croggon review it? No

Will it be on the cover of Realtime? Only if we call it ‘live art’.

The movie had Marlon Brando in it. Before he exploded.

Presented by such theatrical ingenues as:

The List Operators

Thomas Henning

Lessons with Luis

Simoncee Page Jones

Bron Batten

Poet Laureate Telia Nevile

Malcolm Whittaker

Emma Beech

Beth Sometimes (NZ)

And featuring a brand new collaboration between Gabi Barton from The Town Bikes and Vachel Spirason (Slow Clap)

Hosted/narrated by Bron ‘Blanche’ Batten

WHEN? Tuesday the 2nd of October

WHERE? 9pm at The Fringe Hub, North Melbourne Town Hall

And it’s FREE FREE FREE!!!

Come and witness the birth of theatre. Or the death of it. Either way, it’s going to to be something.
