THE BALLAD OF FRANK ALLEN
SKP/Weeping Spoon Productions
Written & Directed By: Shane Adamczak
After it’s making its debut at Fringe World 2016 and two years successfully touring Australia and Canada, the award-winning local show return to Adelaide! A Sci-Fi Buddy-Comedy about a man who lives in another man’s beard from the bizarre mind of Festival-favourite Shane Adamczak (Trampoline, Zack Adams, Canadian Just For Laughs Award Winner and producer of other ★★★★★ Fringe hits This Is Not A Love Song and Vicious Circles).
When a scientific accident causes a mild-mannered janitor to shrink and get stuck in another man’s beard, their unlikely friendship might be exactly what the two directionless men need to set them on the path toward being better men that proves that even the smallest people can do big things.
Featuring two of Australia’s most established Indy Theatre performers; Shane Adamczak (Stasis, Trampoline, Zack Adams and The Little Prince) and St John Cowcher (My Robot, The Red Balloon, Farm and The Adventures Of Alvin Sputnik), the show combines physical theatre, storytelling, musical comedy and indie-rock. The Ballad Of Frank Allen is a festival experience like no other and one of the most weird and original shows you’ll catch at this year’s Fringe World!
