All the time it is funny, wildly fall-about funny
In a co-production between Belvoir and the Malthouse Theatre, Lally Katz tells us the Stories I Want To Tell You In Person.
On one hand, Lally Katz has been writing the funniest and most original plays in the country for the last decade – Neighbourhood Watch, for example. On the other hand, Katz, Oscar Wilde-like, has been putting her genius into her life and only her talent into her work. Now the inevitable moment has come when the two must collide.
The thing is – and this is a true story – Katz was supposed to write a play about a fortune teller. But she spent her commission (and then some) actually going to a fortune teller. In New York. More than once. This is the story of what Katz has been doing instead of writing a play. It features Katz, on her own, as herself, embroiled in a tale of art, love, money, shoes, and the apocalypse (of course).
Anyone who’s met her will know that the word ‘irrepressible’ has nothing on Katz, even at her quietest. She makes chaos charming and catastrophe positively exuberant. She likes to be laughed at, and her method is to talk first and think later. Anything could happen.
Lally is about the commence a short season at the Bakehouse Theatre from 29 October to 8 November. Tickets are available at Bass on www.bass.net.au.
