WYNNUM FRINGE POP-UP
FOR UK THEATRE GODS THIS APRIL!
‘a perfect piece of gig-theatre, with soaring melodies, genuine tenderness and hope that takes us on a euphoric journey of intimacy, death and faith’
– British Theatre Guide
But Wynnum Fringe is in November? Yes, but our amazing friends from the UK are touring Australia in April. You know the story: Adelaide Fringe, Sydney Opera House… Wynnum. All the iconic stops.
This show is a pop music and poetry party and we’re going to do a pop up Wynnum Fringe for one night only on April 16 for it! Dive into an immersive gig where myth meets real life, live at D&W Republic, Wynnum for this one night only experience. The venue fits 100 people so booking early is essential to secure your spot.
The award-winning team behind international smash-hit shows ORPHEUS & EURYDICE return to the southern hemisphere for their biggest tour yet! Look out Bayside, some more Gods are on their way!
Highly celebrated musicians and storytellers, Wright & Grainger, are excited to announce the Australian tour of their hit show, THE GODS THE GODS THE GODS. This is fringe performance art of the highest order. Do not miss this!
THE GODS THE GODS THE GODS: Twelve Tracks, four stories, three performers, one ‘euphoric’ (The Stage) live gig packed with big beats, banging bass lines and Greek Mythology that captivates audiences of all ages. Featuring one of Australia’s best actors Megan Drury (A Midnight Visit, Fighting Season), and created and performed with UK’s Phil Grainger (Clive) and Alexander Wright (The Great Gatsby), THE GODS THE GODS THE GODS invites the audience on to a central dance floor, surrounded by three stages, the performers weaving through the crowd.
It is time for the lads from North Yorkshire to return to their home away from home – Australia. The recently crowned ‘Masters of Storytelling’ (FourthWall) first brought ORPHEUS to Australia in 2019 at the beginning of a 6 month international tour, where they won a Best Theatre Award, Best In Fringe and Beyond Words award. 2020 followed with EURYDICE again winning Best Theatre at Adelaide Festival and the premier of THE GODS THE GODS THE GODS, before Covid put paid to a 12 month tour across Australia, New Zealand, Bali, UK, India and America. Now, a few years and some world-changing time later, they’re back on some of their favourite soil.
Co-Founder/ Creator / Performer Alexander Wright says, ‘Australia feels like our second home. We have found such wonderful audiences, venues, community, friends and artists here. There is such a vibrant flavour to all the festivals we have played and venues we have visited. But this is our biggest tour here yet. We’re so happy to be heading back to some of our favourite places, as well as heading to other places for the first time. Being able to play gorgeous home grown festivals like Bunbury Fringe, and also hit the heights of the Sydney Opera House is a joy. We’re playing everywhere from friend’s back gardens to one of the most iconic art houses in the world. Wynnum will be special too, hanging out with our pal Tom Oliver and his neighbourhood friends!’
The Yorkshire lads are joined by acclaimed Australian actor Megan Drury, who is no stranger to Aussie stages having worked with the likes of Ensemble Theatre, Belvoir St Theatre, National Theatre Of Paramatta and Sport For Jove Theatre Co in Sydney; as well as being an originating cast member in A Midnight Visit, Sydney’s premier large scale immersive theatre production, which then toured to Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Alexander Wright and Phil Grainger, the duo behind Wright & Grainger, met in secondary school in rural North Yorkshire, England and have been making music together since they were 14. When they are not touring the globe winning awards, they are making and creating immersive work such as The Great Gatsby, the UKs longest running immersive production, or working alongside Megan Drury At The Mill, an outdoor theatre space they built in 2021 in the beautiful surrounds of their North Yorkshire homelands.
Don’t miss your chance to experience this electrifying and captivating work live on stage. Tickets for THE GODS THE GODS THE GODS are on sale now.
