GATE 64 Comes to United Solo Theatre Festival
Written and performed by Jane Watt, Gate 64 is making its way to New York after highly successful seasons at Sydney Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
"Sometimes life can be a real c#nt but sometimes it's the most beautifulest thing in the whole world. So we hold onto that. Ya know. That something nice might happen. That someone nice might happen. And then, what do you know, we're doing it. We're just keepin' on living" Winnie lives in an airport. She didn't always live in an airport but she does now. She likes it though. She loves the tension, the high stress situations, watching people crack under the pressure. She'll chat to anyone who'll sit still long enough and hand out advice like candies though it's easy to hold the mirror up for others so we don't have to look at ourselves.
With a heavy dose of whimsy, Gate 64 is a playful look at life on the fringes. Stories that have been collected like stamps are presented with pride and expertise by our host and raconteur, Winnie.
Sunday 11th November at 6:00pm.
