Hey boys and girls are you ready for tonight's performance of Cactus and the Mime? Part of the Melbourne Fringe festival's calendar of arty events, this children's style show with adult humour had me in stitches one minute and teary the next. Strictly for over 18's, it's a must-see romance comedy filled with sexual playfulness, swear words and will have you riding on an emotional relationship roller coaster!

Written and performed by Roby Favretto and Caitlin Spears, watch out for these talented Melbourne actors!

Having successfully raised crowd funding funds through Pozible, for Cactus and the Mime, this performance is an attempt re-enactment of their relationship history as a G rated show.

It's a dramedy bursting with horny unicorns, phallic mascots, talent show grudges, virginal puppets, mystery gifts and use of the word 'metamorphosis'.

"We've embarked on an experimental quest to create a meta-theatrical, satirical dramedy based on our quirky experiences in the field of children's entertainment."

Watch in wonder and alarm as Trevor the depressed Cactus and Mandy the aspiring mime will fight a ticking clock in pursuit to follow their dreams.

Contains coarse language, adult themes
