Have you ever been in love? Did it end well? Maybe you’ve had a fling in Bali that you can’t forget or fantasized about an ex lover while being massaged by a hunky masseur? Do all breakups make you feel like you’ve been reassigned?
Nine of Melbourne’s best indie writers and lonely hearts, and seven performers will bring their considerable experience and clout to the Melbourne Fringe 2017, that will make you laugh, question love (the whole damn thing) and entertain.
Love Kills 2017 is the new show devised and directed by Noel Anderson (Andy Warhol’s Fifteen of Fame, NEXT, Travellers in Time) that dares to tell the truth about love, warts and all. “Love is something we’ve all gotten wrong a couple times, right?” says Anderson. “Love Kills 2017 looks at those moments in our love life when everything goes bloody pear-shaped, romance is dead and we end up a lovesick mess.”
Leading the team of writers for Love Kills 2017 is Melbourne indie theatre stalwart, Kieran Carroll (Sons of Sun, A Fitzroy Romance, The Truth is Longer Than a Lie), along with Tracie Lark, Ros Lewis, Marion Roberts, Melaka Stanash, Ursula Teresa Kolecki, Lourdes Zamanillo, Geoff Stuart, Melissa Collins and Noel Anderson.
The cast for Love Kills 2017 features Caroline Ferguson (The Privatization of Ward 9B), Graham Murray (Glitch 2, Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries), Carissa McAllen (Paper Giants: Magazine Wars), Stephanie Osztreicher, Lourdes Zamanillo, Ros Lewis and Noel Anderson performing his Kylie Minogue pop inspired breakup piece, Confide in Me.
The Love Kills 2017 team know the truth about love is out there somewhere in Collingwood this September, and with a little help from you they are determined to find it!
