Griffin Theatre Company Presents THE SMALLEST HOUR
Griffin Theatre Company rounds off its 2018 Season with the debut of romantic comedy The Smallest Hour, written and performed by the hilarious Susie Youssef (Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Squinters, Accidental Death of an Anarchist) and Phil Spencer (Story Club, Hooting & Howling).
Shelly and Chris haven't seen each other since high school. Now 30, neither of them is leading the life they imagined for themselves. Shelly's a bit lost; having spent a decade floating down a path she no longer wants to follow. She's in charge of the quiz at tonight's Hens' Party, but no amount of Pimm's or penis-shaped cake is going to make this feeling go away. Chris likes to think of himself as an "entrepreneur" but he's recently resorted to casual work as a painfully self-conscious stripper. Worst of all: he's got a Phil Collins song stuck in his head.
One fateful, alcohol-soaked evening, in a city very like Sydney (but definitely not Sydney) Shelly and Chris cross paths, and an unexpected second chance arises for them both. Rich in observant detail and warm humour tinged with melancholy, The Smallest Hour invites audiences to sit back, get cosy and let two consummate storytellers conjure up a gentle romance set against an unlikely backdrop of winding bus rides, orange powerade, and velcro pants. Invite your partner, your mum, your mate-or the one that got away.
The Smallest Hour will run at Griffin's Stables Theatre 5- 15 December.
