What’s the central premise of your show?
A dysfunctional restaurant prepares for its grand re-opening. The action follows three different characters: a waiter, a chef and a maitre d’hotel (all played by myself). When the guest arrives, things start to get interesting.
If you had to pitch your show to a stranger, what would you say?
One man, three characters, an unwitting guest – Table for Two? is an award-winning one-man physical comedy devised and performed by Will Tredinnick. Think Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, Rowan Atkinson – good old-fashioned silliness and absurdity.
What do you want the audience to take away from your show?
I want them to leave with the overwhelming sense that even though we may not have made any great leaps or bounds in unraveling the mysteries of life, we shared 45 minutes of silliness and we had a great time doing it.
Where do you plan to take your show after Melbourne Fringe?
We are touring the show to Adelaide Fringe in Feb/Mar 2020, and then Edinburgh Fringe in Aug 2020.
Tell us two truths and one lie.
Cats are better than cats; I am an idiot; I don’t do burlesque.
Would you rather be able to read minds or fly? Explain.
Fly. Reading minds would take away all the unknowns, there wouldn’t be any surprises in interacting with other people and I reckon that’d be bloody boring after a while. Whereas flying: what are the downsides?
Table for Two? comes to Campari House from Monday September 23 to Sunday September 29 (bar Tuesday). Tix start at $25 from the Fringe website.
