SIARAD, Adelaide Fringe Season, March 2021
Genre: Theatre/ Spoken Word
Length: 50 minutes

A one-woman show with stories and poetry drawn from the book of the same name, SIARAD is a blend of poetry, storytelling and theatre that pairs humour with tragedy, existential angst with pop culture gurus, and masturbating politicians with blue-eyed dogs. It's a show for flawed folk in mid-life reflecting on the faded flush of youth while trying to remain optimistic in the face of inevitable decay. Intimate, conversational, and shot through with black humour, SIARAD is set to make a comeback at The Goodwood Theatre in September 2021.
