Martin Dunlop To Star In SMALL TALES OF LITTLE MERCY At MICF 2019
Martin Dunlop brings his special brand of dark humour back to the Melbourne International Comedy Festival with Small Tales of Little Mercy.
Join us at the Little Mercy Chapel and Refectory as the Reverend Martin Dunlop provides his congregation with four hilarious tales to save their sweet immortal souls.
Small Tales of Little Mercy features four tales of pure Southern Gothic parody in the spirit of A Streetcar Named Desire, To Kill a Mockingbird and other gloomy American stories you might have been forced to read for literature class at some point.
Celebrating the grotesque characters, dark humour and angst of the Southern Gothic genre, this latest offering builds on Martin's previous critically-acclaimed comedy plays, having parodied Robert Louis Stevenson in Jekyll and Hyde: The Sequel, the 17th Century witch panic in Burn The Witch and murder mysteries in Murder, He Spoke with side-splitting results.
With Martin's previous shows becoming cult favourites of the festival, you won't want to miss this ridiculous romp through the murky swamps of the Deep South.
Who's that waiting in the deep shadows of the barn? Who claims the rights to the Salazar plantation? Why do all the women keep fainting? To answer in order: wait and see, wait and see and corsets.
