Aussie Couple Bring Edinburgh Hit Home For Melbourne International Comedy Festival
When 12 people live under the same roof in a converted warehouse in North London, what could possibly go wrong?
This kooky, fun and light-hearted comedy follows Lala Barlow and Robbie Smith as two wide eyed koalas fresh off the boat, looking for the perfect place to call home. Shortlisted for Best Musical and Best Cabaret at Edinburgh Fringe Festival and currently playing Adelaide Fringe, relive their year living at Daisy Mill as they discover high ceilings, bathroom baskets and very thin bedroom walls.
Directed by Sarah Redmond and starring every housemate you've ever lived with, The Worst Little Warehouse In London is a "mind-bogglingly funny story of companionship, shared accommodation, and how to grit your teeth and bear it" (Broadway Baby).
The pace is utterly mind-blowing the comedy is top class Musical Theatre Review
Warehouse is a highlight of the Fringe Curtain Up.
Based on a true story, the cabaret's inspiration came about when the real-life couple were living in a converted warehouse in North London. Struggling with exorbitant rents and the city's ongoing housing crisis, the pair lived with 10 housemates for over a year, discovering so many tales that were too good not to share. Co-creator Robbie Smith says: Almost every day something would happen in The Warehouse and you would think 'you just can't come up with this stuff' and eventually we decided that we had to get these characters on stage.
Directed by Sarah Redmond (Songs For A New World, Tete-a-Tete Opera) and written by and starring Lala Barlow (Annie, The J Noosa; Side Show, Southwark Playhouse London; Annie Get Your Gun, New Union Theatre London) and Robbie Smith (Bromance, The Other Palace London; On The Piste, Studio Jack; Musical of the Year, Stockwell Playhouse).
