Description

30 candles for 30 cakes; 900 birthday candles. It was a spectacular idea, but she never arrived. The sun gets too much credit when it sets, with its fancy colour and light. This is a celebration of the other bit, of a cold, crisp departure. This is the latest creation by award-winning Australian theatre maker Stuart Bowden; a musical feast of ethereal melancholia. Praise for previous work: 'Weirdly magical' (Scotsman on Before Us). 'Master theatre maker' (Stage on Wilting in Reverse). 'Stunning' (Advertiser, Adelaide on She Was Probably Not a Robot).

Just a really self-contained, stunningly beautiful, quietly profound show. Really fantastic, and our favourite show of the Fringe. Saw a previous show of Stuart's at Soho Theatre, London, in 2017 and rarely a day goes by that I don't think about it.

Also you can listen to the music from this show! It's on Spotify and Apple Music!

This is a charmingly odd piece, quirky, understated, and full of quiet warmth.
