The One - Live Theatre Show

Featuring flickers of love songs from the world of rhythm and blues, the musical piece follows the unraveling of a happy couple set to a frenzied guitar. This theatrical fever dream promises to give audiences pause before popping the question.

There’s a happy couple. They’ve been together a few years. They do things couples do: walk together, talk together, meander through IKEA and do crosswords on Sunday mornings.

One day he realises she’s The One, so he gets down on one knee (as is tradition) and proposes. And she explodes: “Do you actually know what marriage is? It’s a way of turning women into property.” And he gets her point… kind of… but he loves her, and surely she’ll come around. I mean, he’s seen Taming of the Shrew. Some women just need more convincing than others.

Written and directed by Jeffrey Jay Fowler and produced by Whiskey & Boots, one of Perth’s newest theatre companies comprised of two local treasures, Georgia King and Mark Storen.

The One takes a romantic cliché and impales it with marriage’s grim history; A Musical RE-telling of the classic story of boy meets girl, boy proposes to girl and everything falls apart.

Suitable for ages 15+ (contains adult themes and language).

“Sexy, funny and smart that will stimulate the mind, the heart and the libido. It’s a big step away from anything I’ve done before.” Jeffrey Jay Fowler

Tales from the Antique Roadshow

Written by Administrator on . Posted in Blog

antiques-roadshow-australia

Join three of the Antiques Roadshow’s most popular experts, Hilary Kay, Paul Atterbury and Ronnie Archer-Morgan as they tell their own personal stories behind the scenes.

Celebrate 40 years of BBC’s Antiques Roadshow.

Tales from the Antiques Roadshow will take us on a unique journey behind the cameras to discover how the award-winning television series is created.

Previously unseen footage will be screened and theatre audiences will share some of the excitement of the fabulous filming locations. See the most valuable and bizarre objects on screen as the experts remember the tears and laughter of the show’s extraordinary history.

A firm favourite on our TV screens, the series, through its wonderful objects, knowledgeable experts, interesting owners and occasional heart stopping valuations, turns the spotlight on human stories; the voice of history and humanity, sometimes touched with humour and pathos.

In May 1977 one of the world’s great television success stories started filming a pilot for BBCTV, and in 2017, in its 40th year, Antiques Roadshow is now bringing its stories to Australia in a live show specially created to celebrate this important milestone.

The experts will answer questions and invite the audience to test their own expertise by playing the Basic, Better, Best game, so popular with Antiques Roadshow audiences attending the filming days.

The stories will enthrall – from the First World War battlefields of the Somme to the era of Rock ‘n’ Roll, from the everyday to the priceless, each possessing a unique narrative earning them a place in history.

What are we collecting now?

How will future Roadshows value the folly or wisdom of our choices today?

Find out the answers when the Antiques Roadshow tells its story live on stage.

Enjoy the show on January 27 at Arts Margaret River. Our Margaret River Beach House is close to Arts Margaret River.
