GMT to Present The International Theatre Series, 10/8-20
After successful seasons at the 2011 and 2012 Adelaide Fringe festivals, and hit seasons in Kansas City, USA and the UK's Bedford Fringe, GMT Productions International is proud to announce the return of Company Gavin Robertson and Nicholas Collett Productions with five exciting tales to suit all tastes.
Featuring two Australian premieres, a world premiere and two return seasons, GMT Creative Producer Glen Christie promises two weeks of comedy, excitement and drama.
"Having seen four of the shows," Christie revealed, "I knew I had to bring them to Adelaide - and what better way to introduce audiences to something new, than by sprinkling it with something familiar and popular? I can't wait to see our exclusive world premiere come to life on an Adelaide stage."
Fringe goers may recognise Spitfire Solo and The Six-Sided Man, both returning to Adelaide after previous successful seasons. Spitfire Solo is an inventive and charming piece
, about an aged Spitfire pilot who rises from the ashes of his memories to find new meaning in life, while the latter play delves into the seductively menacing world of a psychiatrist who abandons every decision to the roll of the dice.
These two plays are joined by the Australian premieres of two very familiar characters shining in a new light. BOND! An Unauthorised Parody is a fresh take on Britain's most famous spy in a physical cartoon-style adventure that features the smallest car chase (n)ever seen! Crusoe interweaves the stories of a hit man, an Alzheimer's patient and single life in the 21st Century into a darkly comical exploration of the Big Bang Theory and the classic tale of Robinson Crusoe.
The world premiere of Nelson - The Sailor's Story completes this extraordinary season of plays, providing a historical glimpse into seafaring life aboard the battleship HMS Victory, circa 1805.
Each play is presented for a limited season featuring former West End star and now producer/actor/writer, Gavin Robinson, and Nicholas Collett, who received 4 and 4.5 star reviews for Spitfire Solo when he last performed in Adelaide.
"Whether you prefer laughter or tears, comedy or history, these guys are going to make you run the gamut of emotions," Christie proclaimed. "Those who have seen them perform know what I mean but those who haven't are in for a treat. Of the five shows, I think we've covered every style of storytelling except burlesque!"
He goes on to expound the cinematic world of Crusoe, the inventiveness of Spitfire Solo, the cartoonish BOND! and the darkly humorous Six-Sided Man in particular.
