Clare Bartholomew & Daniel Tobias The Anniversary

It’s Mr. Bean meets The Shining!

You are cordially invited to Jim and Barb’s Golden Anniversary. 

Don’t be fooled — this is no ordinary elderly couple. Leave your preconceptions at the door and expect the unexpected. The Anniversary is a physical comedy house party from hell!

From the creators of the multi-award-winning Otto & Astrid – Die Roten Punkte comes a brand-new murderously funny comedy farce from Clare Bartholomew & Daniel Tobias, directed by Peter Houghton.

Jim and Barb’s dreams for the perfect celebration of their love quickly fall away as they face the reality of a semi-century together. Put yourself in their shoes: after 50 years of marriage, can you imagine how much simmering resentment is about to boil over? They’re just about ready to kill each other!

Hold onto your hats for the most absurd and hilarious tailspin of a party like you’ve never seen before. 

'Packed with elaborate set-pieces, running gags, inventive visual comedy and the revolving door antics of pure farce… comedy horror!' The Age

'Picture TV stars Magda Szubanski and Glenn Robbins putting a personal spin on Samuel Beckett’s Endgame, Jean-Paul Sartre's No Exit, Slava’s Snow Show by Slava Polunin, Jimmie Chinn’s A Different Way Home, or anything similarly absurdist, and you’ll get the idea. Theatre People
