From 18th-29th July at PACT Theatre in Erskineville, Ten Tonne Sparrow will present the world-premiere production of the charmingly sincere and touchingly funny Love Song Dedications (without Richard Mercer).
Created by, and starring, multi-disciplinary artists Tom Hogan and Bonnie Leigh-Dodds, the production was inspired by their lament for the long-lost radio show, Love Song Dedications, and its elusive former host.
Richard Mercer's radio show ran nightly across Australia's East Coast between 1997 and 2013. Over 17 years, Mercer's trademark baritone voice welcomed the lovelorn and lovestruck as they called in to dedicate a song and speak to the man who was at once counsellor and cupid.
After listening to thousands of these personal dedications, and hundreds of heartfelt songs about unrequited love and the greatest love all, Tom and Bonnie are on a quest to find the perfect love song… objectively. Love Song Dedications (without Richard Mercer) offers the ultimate therapeutic playlist.
Love Song Dedications (without Richard Mercer) is made in conjunction with the podcast mini-series Missing Richard Mercer.
