Siblings: Acting Out (Maddy and Marina Bye with Mandy Ward Artist Management)

By | Published on Sunday 19 August 2018

Wrapping your sibling’s head in elastic bands, sabotaging their confidence at every available opportunity and making up ridiculous scenes in which you continually try to outdo each other – signs of a toxic sibling rivalry, or the ingredients of a hysterical comedy show? In a set reminiscent of deliriously hyper childhood playdates, real life sisters Maddy and Marina Bye bring the two together, creating a ridiculously absurd sketch show that is hilariously relatable, especially for anybody that has ever spent time around competitive sisters. Fighting for the limelight, the pair will stop at nothing, aggressively singing, clowning and shoving in a desperate attempt to outdo one another. I left with tears on my cheeks, extremely relieved to have brothers.

Underbelly George Square, until 27 Aug.
