Fringe: Bad Manor

I went to see a Fringe Festival play last night at the Lorne St theatre: Bad Manor. It was a comment on Destiny’s Church and the differing strands beneath the banner of Christianity. They called Destiny’s Church "the Brotherhood of the Imaginary Friend". It was superb. It’s on for two more nights – thoroughly recommended!

The play focuses on a flat of seven twenty-somethings and their reactions to the Brotherhood’s publicity and political stance regarding the Civil Unions Act 2005. There’s some great discussion of the issues from a variety of perspectives, and the acts are split by hilarious sermons from Dwayne Zealot, the pastor of the Brotherhood of the Imaginary Friend (haha, still makes me laugh :).

There are two more shows: tonight and tomorrow night, at 7:30, Lorne St Theatre (corner Lorne St and Cambridge Tce). Tomorrow I’m going to check out Eating the Wolf.

Jeez, I don't know if I'll be able to make it. You should tell me about these things a little beforehand. :-)

Dwayne Zealot? Ha ha ha ha. That sounded like a very good night. Any chance that those of us in our beloved (SAY NOTHING) biggest city might see any of that?

O yes:

Dayle here. I played Lynda in Bad Manor - my flatmate randomly found this site. Thanks heaps for the lovely comment, ummm we invited Destiny Church, Brian etc - but they declined. However our posters mysteriously started getting ripped down the day after I spoke to DC. Hmmmm?

That's probably about it.
