Meet our Groom: a frightened young man coerced by his overbearing mother to marry his distant cousin, the daughter of the wealthiest man in town. As he enters the dark mysterious church he is greeted by the wedding party, which includes The Father of The Bride (a repulsive man obsessed with his wealth), The Servant (a hopeless romantic with a wonky mustache) The Maidservant (a ‘chaste’ young woman with wandering eyes), and The Priest (a holy man of God with suspiciously distinctive facial hair).

Don’t miss this second chance to catch this beautiful paradox of a show, which brings to the stage an absurd and anarchic energy. Through their use of ridiculous characters, extreme gags and soap opera backstories, A Fool’s Company have created a truly unique piece of theatre which will make you gasp in terror, laugh until you wee, and finally, question the traditions we hold sacred. The Wedding is a devised concept by members of A Fool’s Company; Aaron Richardson, Melissa Cameron, Georgie Llewellyn, Emily Hurley and Kyle Shields alongside director Grace Augustine, and produced by Charlie Underhill

This Summer season of The Wedding will be a dedicated fundraiser season, with the final profit share being dedicated to funding A Fool’s Company to travel to Melbourne Fringe Festival in 2023. A Fool’s Company will also be taking part in Basement Theatre and iTICKET’s Pay What You Can pricing initiative, allowing audiences to literally pay what they can for their tickets, giving wider financial access to some, and allowing others to give more directly to these artists - paying what they can to support this work!
Make sure to book your tickets early and help A Fool’s Company bring their special brand of silly across the ditch for Melbourne Fringe 2023!
