Thomas Jaspers has finally decided that he wants to settle down. So he’s spent the last six months locating every person he ever slept with in a quest to find out exactly what went wrong, as you do. At the end of this eccentric experiment he hopes he will be able to perfect his flaws and find ‘the one’, he just needs to weed through the couple hundred ‘ones’ he already met…
Why is he still alone? How did he get here? And WHY does he insist on spending his spare time dressed as middle-aged music theatre star Rhonda Burchmore?!
Long before he became the breakout hit of the 2013 Melbourne International Comedy Festival with No Place Like Homo, Thomas Jaspers was a hit online, spoofing Australian theatre legend Rhonda Burchmore on Twitter with his alter ego beer loving, soapstar-trashing Rhonda BUTCHmore.
Since then, he’s appeared in the Adelaide Feast Festival, New York Fringe Festival, Sydney Mardi Gras, Brisbane Powerhouse and most recently Midsumma Festival in the highly acclaimed Rhonda’s Fabulous Guided CouTours of Arts Centre Melbourne.
Join Thomas on this camp romp of repressed memories and romantic dreams before he buys a B&B and retires in Daylesford. You’ll be happy to know, his mother is not invited to this show.
