Chris Turner: Observational Tragedy


  • Rosie O'Grady's Perth Australia

‘I saw a butterfly flying out to sea. It will get lost out there and die’ - Iris Murdoch, The Sandcastle.

Long-limbed award-winner tries to pin down the things that we should really let go. A comedy show with live instrumentation, emotional manipulation and 'truly masterful gags, crafted with intellectual panache’ (Chortle). There’ll be freestyles as well, but they’ll probably be quite sad.

9.30pm, 8th-12th February
6.45pm, 15th-21st February
Rosie O'Grady's
