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
Lessons with Luis
Simoncee Page Jones
Poet Laureate Telia Nevile
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.
