This year the Prague Fringe Festival features two Australian productions, both comedies which will hit you close to the bone!
“Play Actually – A Non Rom Com” playfully deconstructs the romantic myth in a manner both "absurdist and accurate” with two Aussie performers whose “irrepressible energy… makes every scene zing." (Australian Stage). Play Actually – a Non Rom Com will be performed at Divadlo Na Pradle every night at 20.30 from May 24 to June 1.
“False Friends“ is a new comedy from the writer of last year’s sell-out show Déjà Vu. A young Australian moves to Prague to be with his girlfriend and is soon harassed by an alcoholic grouch, a hypochondriac divorcee, and a delirious young woman. All three are dead, and the Australian is the man to help them find the light. If only he could understand a word of Czech. False Friends will be performed at Divadlo Kampa every night from May 24 to May 28.
Tickets are 150kc each and available at the door or via Ticketstream (www.ticketstream.cz). For more information see www.praguefringe.com. CANZA is proud to be supporting the Australian performances at this year’s Fringe Festival.
