A Night To Dismember (Wil Greenway)

By | Published on Tuesday 27 August 2013

Imagine that the dorkiest kid in your school told you the most incredible story, with the eloquence of Charles Dickens. This is the sort of experience that Wil Greenway has prepared for his first solo show at the Fringe. Dressed in a children’s rain poncho, short trousers, and clutching an inflatable shark, his story begins with tragedy, focusing on the day his right arm was eaten. After this, we get a truck-load of awkward: encounters with ex-girlfriends, embarrassing parties, cheesy asteroids, drunken footballers… In short, the show is mixture of bizarre elements, embellished with witty descriptions and Greenway’s hilarious performance. Despite the whole thing feeling rather far-fetched, his skilled storytelling will keep your mind fully engaged.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 26 Aug (not 14), 3.00pm.
