That's an excerpt from The Duck House's latest production Minnie And Mona, by Jeffrey Jay Fowler, devised for and with Gita Bezard, Alissa Claessens and Kathryn Osborne.
Minnie and Mona tells the twisted tale of a friendship based on a hilarious and gruesome game, as they mourn, embalm, infect and die. As their world darkens, they struggle fiercely for power, attention and who gets to be the boy.
This dark and deathly comedy is a collaboration between The Duck House and writer Jeffrey Jay Fowler and featuring performers Arielle Gray and Gita Bezard.
Multi-award winning local contemporary theatre company The Duck House have just celebrated their 5th birthday with a hugely successful season of One Night Echo.
Minnie and Mona is one of the must-see shows of Fringe World 2013. It can be seen at Pica from the 4th to the 8th February, 2013. Tickets cost $20 to $25 and are available from the FringeWorld website.
