Fringe 2001 Isn't Over Yet.....

Yes, that's right you've all been fooled into thinking that Fringe 2001 is over....well BATS is the 'heart of the fringe' and we're still in Fringe land for one more week so here's our lineup....

Life's Little Losses

Season: Monday 19 - Saturday 24 March Time: 6.30pm Tickets: $12.00 Full Price, $10.00 Concession, $8.00 Fringe Friend

Meet Zack Dillon, a young man behind bars for a crime he did commit. Meet his trashy friends and his neurotic family, and meet the confined world in which he lives. Meet Zack. One of Life's Little Losses.The winner of the Playmarket 2000 Youth Category, this fresh piece of theatre noir was written by 17-year old Lucy O'Brien. Directed by Laura Staples (Moving Alice) it promises a mystery worth getting embroiled in.

Little Che

Season: Monday 19 ­ 24 March Time: 8pm Tickets: $15.00 Full Price, $12.00 Concession, $10.00 Fringe Friend

Strap up your buckles and get ready to ride on a journey into South America with one of the 20th Century¹s most evocative figures; Ernesto "Che" Guevara.

Join, Taika Cohen (Scarfies, Snakeskin and The Humourbeasts), Paolo Rotondo (Stickmen, The Ugly and Never Never) and director Andrew Foster (When Sun and Moon Collide, Trouble Theatre) as they bring life to a 20yr old Che Guevara and his friend Alberto. The year is 1951 and the two medical students have fixed up ŒLa Poderosa¹ (the powerful one), an old Norton 500cc motorbike. Their mission is to discover South America on a quest for adventure, or maybe just the next free glass of wine. This is a travel story but with a difference as from these carefree beginnings Che will one day grow into one of the most revered symbols of youth, rebellion and idealism the world has ever known. For the moment though, his grumbling belly is the next battle to be won.

Little Che; Motorbikes, lepers, wine, women andŠŠsocialism, some guys just have it all.
