Run or you will laugh to death


Dodo Park is a hilarious parody of the beloved movie Jurassic Park. Instead of dinosaurs, the park is inhabited by dodos. One scientist claims dodos were very friendly and the other scientist claims they were evil, vicious killing machines.

The outset is already hilarious, seeing dodos as the stand-in for dinosaurs. The play follows pretty much the most important stages of the movie and the character development. However, it adds some funny Hollywood clichés to the mix. Dodo Park also has a very interesting twist ending that changes the whole story.

It is a play for young and old, for lovers of the Jurassic Park movies and people, who simply like satire. The play is written with such humour that most members of the audience will find it hard to stay on their seats. The laughter can be so infectious that even the actors themselves can't keep a straight face.

The Factory Theatre also offers a good environment for this kind of play, which has a weird premise and unusual style.
