(How) Do you celebrate a death in the family?
Through the power of comedy Wake and Bake explores the struggles of feuding siblings having to deal, not only with their dysfunctional relationships with each other, but also with the death of a parent.

Wake and Bake, Fringe World, Perth Fringe Festival 2015, Cheeky Sparrow
Thomas and Used as Miles and Harry

A family dinner in honour of their recently deceased father sees the reunion of youngest sibling Miles with his asshole brother James and indifferent sister Ellie, as well as her totally bonkers boyfriend Harry. The dinner quickly escalates from awkward to completely disastrous after a series of unfortunate incidents involving fire, glue, knives and cups. And not to mention, historical grudges. Witty dialogue and thoughtful moments will have you laughing, crying, then laughing again over 45 intense minutes.

Wake and Bake is the brain child of Jackson Used and Ben Thomas. Along with Thomas Owen, these talented local creatives are the founders of independent theatre company, sandpaperplane. Wake and Bake is sandpaperplane's first production, and what better way to debut than at the 2015 Perth Fringe Festival!

Showing at 7:30pm until Thursday February 19 at a pop-up theatre at the Cheeky Sparrow, come early and grab a seat right at the front to get the most out of the show (the cheeky one-liners make it). See the Fringe World website for tickets or you can buy them for $15 (groups of 6 or more get discounted tickets) at the door.
