Death Ship 666 (Death Ship 666 / Free Festival)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

This supremely funny farce is simply unmissable – and won’t stay a free show forever. High-octane and high-energy, the script is genius and the cast is pure gold. ‘Death Ship 666’ parodies ‘Titanic’ as a wonderfully dark comedy, and the fantastic cast played a whole host of hilarious characters, expertly exploiting tropes and cliches from theatre and film. Expect fires and floods, bears and explosions (on a budget). Come prepared for anarchic, bizarre humour and even a bit of song and dance, splendidly over-acted and flawlessly choreographed. This meta-disaster chucks joke after joke at you, the cast working so well because of their synchronisation as an ensemble. Accomplished but naughty family entertainment, this is perfection.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, until 25 Aug, 10.45am.
