New Australian Musical TINDER TALES Comes to The 2018 MICF
Tinder Tales - A New Australian Musical is a show for anyone who has puked on a first date, spent an hour constructing a five-word text, or gone on a late-night tinder-binge. In a world where true love is just a swipe away and happiness is just another commodity, Tinder Tales asks; does true love exist in a digital age?
Tinder Tales - A New Australian Musical is a new original musical by Melbourne writers Mattie McLeod and Thomas Bradford.
Meet Abby, a cynical romantic who's finally met a guy she thinks might be the one. We see how the blossoming relationship affects Abby, even as her own self-esteem starts to impact on her relationship. Her Insecurities and Doubts manifest as characters in her mind, her Mother constantly preaches at her from the heavens as the voice of God, and just when it seems it can't any worse, Dr. Over-Analyze comes out to play.
Tinder Tales is presented in one act with a catchy pop score and melodramatic fantasies. Blending elements of musical theatre and cabaret, the show satirizes romantic comedies and online dating, even as it succumbs to all their worst tropes. Through the lense of online dating the show explores anxiety, sexuality, love and mental health in a modern age.
Tinder Tales - A New Australian Musical is a fearless and hilarious show from Melbourne's newest powerhouse writing team.
