Trygve Wakenshaw & Barnie Duncan: Different Party

  • Mon 8 - Sat 20 Jan 2018, 7pm. Sat matinees 4pm
  • From £9 (Previews)

‘A howlingly funny, exquisitely performed hour of office-set slapstick from two of New Zealand’s most exciting comic talents.’
Telegraph

Sold out hit at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Picture the most mundane place imaginable descending into a world of absurdist fantasy. Business drones Grareth Krubb and Dennis Chang whittle away the minutes in the barren office of Ruck’s Leather Interiors, patiently waiting for the phone call that may or may not give them something to actually do. In between the drudgery of the 9-5, the minutiae of office existence open up a fantastical world of fancy where a sticky piece of paper turns men into pigeons, where briefcases are dogs, and where that elusive client is always a missed call away.

Following the delirious success of Kraken and Nautilus, his two solo shows at the Mime Festival, Trygve Wakenshaw joins forces with fellow New Zealander, Barnie Duncan (Calypso Nights), in this extraordinary celebration of the banal. Dialogue is minimal, jokes are plentiful; physical comedy at its best.

Early booking recommended!
