THE ANNIVERSARY

Presented by CIRCFest22 Meanjin, Cluster Arts, MILKE, and Salvadore Dinosaur.

It’s Mr. Bean meets The Shining!

You are cordially invited to Jim and Barb’s Golden Anniversary.

Fifty years of love and companionship.

Can you imagine how much simmering resentment is about to boil over?

Jim and Barb’s dreams for the perfect celebration of their love quickly fall away as they face the reality of a semi-century together. Join them on their absurd and hilarious tailspin into the abyss of unfulfilled dreams. Think Beckett meets Wallace and Grommit, or Mr Bean meets The Shining.

Expect the unexpected, and leave your preconceptions at the door – for this is no ordinary elderly couple. The Anniversary is a physical comedy house party from hell!
