TONSILS & TWEEZERS: SHAPE SHIFTING COHESION OF DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE

Production Images: Clare Hawley

The smooth jazz played preshow does somewhat lull one into a place. But that is not anything like the place you will be for the next 65 minutes.  TONSILS AND TWEEZERS is an obstacle course of a show.  What you will experience is a disorienting, fast paced, time shifting offering with the sadness of a secret at its core.  Wonderful tech and design combine with acting which expands beyond the scene-shifting to make TONSILS AND TWEEZERS an open-hearted story of a human emotion common to us all.  Continue reading TONSILS & TWEEZERS: SHAPE SHIFTING COHESION OF DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE

TONSILS & TWEEZERS: FIRST UP FOR 2018 AT KXT

JackRabbit Theatre is proud to present TONSILS & TWEEZERS by Will O’Mahony and directed by Michael Abercromby. 

Tonsils + Tweezers are friends – best friends – inseparable since high school. But a freak accident ten years ago IS threatening to tear them apart. On the afternoon of their high school reunion, Tweezers comes up with a plan. He puts down his tools, takes out a gun, and asks, “Tonsils, ever wanted to kill someone?”

TONSILS & TWEEZERS is a show about friendship, loss and letting go of the past. Moving at lightning pace, this show is as heartfelt as it is hilarious.

JackRabbit Theatre is proud to be presenting the Sydney premiere of this fast, witty new work, and be the first to bring Perth-based writer Will O’Mahony’s fantastic writing to Sydney.

With…
Hoa Xuande, Megan Wilding, Travis Jeffrey and James Sweeny

The trendy couple are mortified and turn their lives upside down in search of their missing mut. Their search is undertaken with the same zealousness as if they were searching for a missing person.   What follows is a journey into the wiley characters of the neighbourhood including the local public housing estates and features some hilarious insights into society.
