See a Homegrown Hero
The FRINGE WORLD program is proof that Western Australia is bursting at the seams with amazing local talent – half of the huge 2019 line-up is made up of homegrown artists.
FRINGE WORLD partner Woodside beams the spotlight on these Homegrown Heroes every year and we love to see them during their time to shine. A big part of the thrill of Fringe is knowing you are supporting local artists while having a great time.
1. Mess Hall
You won’t see this on RuPaul’s Drag Race! For those who are after drag with a twist, Mess Hall looks like it would be right up your alley with its creative spectacle.
This is a dirty midnight show from the makers of Mâché: Repose that is a night of surreal and avant garde drag talent. Yas kween, sounds fierce!
2. Dr Felicity Rickshaw’s Sex Party
The team behind this show are Fringe regulars and have been wowing audiences and critics around the country with their witty creations. Come back and see them again (or for the first side-splitting time!) in 2019.
Sure to be packed with their signature risqué humour with a playful tone, this one is about Dr Felicity Rickshaw, the self-proclaimed Dostoyevsky of erotic celebrity fan fiction. Count us in!
3. A Trois
For slight change of pace, check out this one-act musically-styled production bursting with local talent.
Three people perch, lounge, and balance on chairs for this lyrical exploration of romance, sex, gender, and relationships. It’s quick-witted, funny, and a little bit too relatable.
4. Flight Of Fancy
Take an unforgettable journey of the hottest talent the cabaret and burlesque world has to offer!
Perth’s burlesque amber delight Whisky A’More returns with this dazzling, side-splitting, and titillating crew of top performers for a fresh, lively and sexy show each night.
5. What the Fandango?!
One talented cabaret star – four powerful personas. Robert Hoffmann tackles several fascinating characters with ease in this multi-gendered romp.
Witness the dazzling transformation between feisty Helmut Wunderlicher, glam goddess Gaye Thyme, outspoken Sr Virgillious and deluded church singer Susan Higgins. This is a mix of comedy and song you do not want to miss.
6. Sense and Spontaneity
Based on the classic Jane Austen novel Sense and Sensibility, but don’t worry, you don’t have to be a literature buff to get laughs from this show. It is back and sillier than ever before.
Come along for an adventure of bonnets, balls, romance, and ridiculousness which is completely unscripted and improvised, no two shows are alike!
