Blistering one-woman play Gobby heads to the Adelaide Fringe in 2020, direct from hit seasons in the UK.
Written and performed by JODIE IRVINE (Soho Young Company, The Second City), Gobby comes to Adelaide following a successful debut in London, seasons at the Greater Manchester, Bedford and Exeter Fringes, sold-out shows at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, as well as performances at London's Pleasance Theatre as part of the Best of Edinburgh Season.
Touching on themes of emotional manipulation, discovering self-awareness and learning to accept who you really are, Gobby sees the UK's Irvine in a one-woman celebration of being a loudmouth. It's a darkly comic tale of survival, and a lesson in how to throw a really good party.
Five parties. One big mouth. Bri is not who she used to be, so she's revisiting the five parties that changed her. Gobby is a playlist of awkward encounters, starting over and growing up, staged amongst hoards of party memorabilia and a whole host of anarchic festivities.
Don't miss the dark comedy that is Gobby at the 2020 Adelaide Fringe.
