If you don’t know who you are and you don’t know where you’re headed, you might find yourself spiralling in ever-tightening circles until you come to rest in a nondescript part of town; in a crummy two-star hotel, where the service is churlish, the lift doesn’t work, the toast is burnt and the pot plants set off your allergies. But! Keep our expectations low, really low, and who knows? You might be pleasantly surprised by how everything works out.

An absurdist comedy full of whimsy and wit with liberal lashings of life’s painfully poignant moments.
 

CAST
3 female - 4 male
2 x middle aged men, 1 young couple, 1 middle aged couple, 1 older woman.

Our Archivist, Narelle Shorey has certainly been busy going back through the old files and is trying to create a complete list of Cairns Little Theatre - The Rondo theatre's past shows including Fringe Theatre.  Narelle does have a huge collection of information to sort through; old programs, photos, newspaper clippings and now digital memories and has dedicated uncountable volunteer hours to organise it all!  We can't thank you enough Narelle. 

Next time you visit check out our digital memories compiled by Narelle on the foyer telly.  You might just spot yourself!

We are now looking for your help to fill in the gaps and share your memories with us.


Check out the two lists below and email Narelle at narelles43@gmail.com if you can help us add any missing shows...?
