By Eric Gardiner. Presented by Darebin Arts’ Speakeasy as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival. Northcote Town Hall, Studio One. September 16 – 26, 2015
It is always a refreshing adventure to catch an MKA offering. Bounty is, as described in the Darebin Fringe Festival booklet, ‘(an) absurd collision between modern Queensland and ancient Rome’, absurd being the operative word here.
This wild, somewhat messy work, a little on the thin side as far as content, is slickly directed by Tom Gutteridge and performed with energy and aplomb by Conor Gallacher, Matilda Reed, Zia Zantis-Vinycomb and Artemis Ioannides.
