An encore screening of an unprecedented performance

This fabulous musical was adapted for Zoom and live-streamed over 5 nights in June in a house set up for COIVD times. For those that missed it, there is an encore on-demand streaming until the 12th of July. You buy a ticket and have four hours to watch the show from when you first start to watch it (prior to midnight on the 12th when it stops). The play runs for just under 2 hours.

The show itself is funny and engaging, and the songs are catchy and uplifting - perfect for these strange times. The show opens as a support group for spies and military operatives and slowly unfolds how small acts of vanity and office politics can create a big fallout of global proportions.

The Australian online production is presented by Curveball Creative and directed by Neil Gooding. While it's worth watching just for the imaginative zoom adaption, an exercise in how not to let the medium hold you back, the play is boisterously entertaining as well as at times, dark and unsettling. I found I've been thinking of aspects since I watched it earlier this week.

For theatre buffs, it's worth checking out Curveball Creative's Facebook page to see how they organised the rehearsal and house set for COVID guidelines.

Time is running out to catch this gem - so don't miss it. Theatre online is no longer static.
