Will Tredinnick. Holden Street Theatres – The Arch, and Live From Tandanya – Tandanya Arts Cafe. 19 Feb 2019
This fabulous show starts off in the pink. We are invited to be a fly on the wall for the Grand Re-opening of a run-down restaurant restored with flamingo wallpaper and pink costuming. A nervous and most improbable waiter readies the table utilising silent movie slapstick-style physical comedy complete with tinkering soundtrack. With change of pace and a couple more eccentric characters, devisor, director and performer Will Tredinnick runs amok in a hilarious study of acutely excruciating embarrassment and trepidation – an Epicurean enigma of epic proportions . Constantly turning the tables on the audience, no caper is too ridiculous. Actions are timed beautifully with lights and sound operation to enhance the unease.
Tredinnick, on this night, is ably augmented by an audience member, and one can only hope that in your attendance - as attend you must – you have it as good. Will is a NIDA Emerging Artist award winner and cooked up this, his first show, nearly all by himself. A little half-baked, but so what. Bravo for bravado!
When: 15 to 24 February
Where: Holden Street Theatres – The Arch, and Live From Tandanya – Tandanya Arts Cafe
