Moose is loose in this quirky play
What does a bipolar best friend, a talking moose and an overweight David Bowie tribute singer have in common? All is revealed in this absorbing new play that follows the story of Molly, who moves from Canada to Australia to try and kick start her life after humiliation by social media in her hometown.

However, things don't go smoothly. After meeting her new best manic friend Annika, and her insufferable boss Clive, things quickly spiral out of control for Molly, who soon realises she may have made the worst decision of her life. Only her next door neighbour, Gavin, seems to be her ally.

And then there's the talking moose, her inner demon who follows her from Canada and delights in tormenting her. Can Molly, with the help of her friends, drive him from her? However, even best friendships come with complications, and Molly learns that there are some fears you can't run away from - even on the other side of the world. She has to look at these fears and decide if and when to end unhealthy relationships and to 'let go'.

It is a polished performance with some quirky humour and a clever plot that has an underlining tone on the issues of mental illness and how one word can affect someone's life. The power of true friends is brought to the fore. The play highlights also the mundane feeling of unstimulating work with at times an uncanny resemblance to 'The Office'.

The play is an original comedy written by Bianca Butler Reynolds and Directed by Kat Dekker and was developed with support from Playlab. There are well honed performances by Bianca Butler Reynolds, Siobhan Finniss, Brendan James, Daren King and Alex Lanham.

Performances are at the Sue Benner Theatre, Metro Arts in the, Brisbane QLD from Friday 21 July to 23 July @ 7:30pm. Tickets are $30 GA / $25 Concession.

Book online at their website.
