The Bathtub Grin. Melbourne International Comedy Festival. The 86, Smith Street, Fitzroy. April 14 – 19, 2014
What happens when a council worker knocks on the door of a house containing a Vampire, a ghost, a love struck Mummy, a giant worm, and a crazy Professor and several other zany characters? You certainly don’t anticipate the wacky, absurdist twists found in this very funny show.
The use of shadow puppets for the character of Narrator and to establish location within the house was very clever and well executed and using the screen to perform some scenes in silhouette worked well.
