Entertainment and laughs abound
Clearly South Australia has a wealth of undiscovered acting talent as I discovered on Saturday night, seated comfortably in theatre #2 at Star Theatre on Sir Donald Bradman Drive, Hilton. I was thoroughly engaged by the brilliant character portrayal of a young Ben Affleck and the vocal artistry of Fringe Festival veteran, Jennifer Barry and professionally trained, Louise Byrnes who brings a unique, yet sometimes stilted portrayal of an ambitious Matt Damon in the award-winning comedy, Matt and Ben.

Matt & Ben is the story of two struggling young actors and best buds, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, and the exploration and testing of their "mateship" on the day a screenplay (curiously titled Good Will Hunting as authored by themselves), falls from the heavens onto the coffee table in Ben's living room. What? How could that be? Is this the big scriptwriting break Matt and Ben have been praying for - or are they being tested by a higher power?

If you're looking for light comedic entertainment to commence your evening, then you'll have the opportunity to laugh along with the crowd and be captivated by the range of emotions elicited by Barry and Byrnes, who draw you effortlessly into the characters' petulant and sometimes turbulent world on Friday, 26th October at the Star Theatre, Hilton at 7.30pm.

The Back 2 Back Short Show Festival will be featuring numerous and diverse shows along with Matt and Ben and an array of local creators and performers. Tickets at $28.50 available here.
