The Ballad of Frank Allen

PREVIEW 16 February
DURATION 55 minutes
PRICE $22 - $25

Theatre. Comedy. Indie rock. Beard.

A comedy about a man who lives in another man’s beard.

When a scientific accident causes a mild-mannered janitor to shrink and get stuck in another man’s beard, their unlikely friendship might be exactly what the two directionless men need to set them on the path toward being better men.

From the bizarre mind of Shane Adamczak (Trampoline, Zack Adams, 3 x Canadian Just For Laughs Award Nominee and producer of the Award-winning five-star Fringe hits This Is Not A Love Song and Vicious Circles) comes a brand new comedy about how even the smallest people can do big things.

Combining physical theatre, storytelling, musical comedy and indie-rock, The Ballad Of Frank Allen promises to be a Fringe experience like no other. Featuring two of WA’s most established indie theatre performers, Shane Adamczak and St John Cowcher (The Red Balloon, Farm and The Adventures Of Alvin Sputnik), Weeping Spoon Productions are delighted for their latest work to make its world debut as part of 2016 FRINGE WORLD.
