Written by Georgina Titheridge
Directed by Edward Watson

Pop Juan Production’s presents BabyCakes written by Playmarket Young Playwright of the Year 2007, Georgina Titheridge (The Hunting of the Snark), and directed by Edward Watson, actor and recent graduate of VUW Theatre and Film School, who brings a fresh insight to theatre direction.

This debut performance as part of the Fringe is a character driven comedy with witty, honest, confrontational dialogue that will make cringe, make you cry, make you wet yourself and die (with laughter).

BabyCakes is a comedy about trashy weddings, a call centre, and people that are overly bent on being normal. And cake. Lots of cake. Mmmm cake.

Imagine you are Anais, sitting at the reject table of a wedding reception surrounded by your old call centre buddies - the booze hag, the sleaze bag and the guy she probably would have pashed if she was drunk enough. An unashamedly honest, at times cringe worthy exploration of relationships, coming to terms with who you are and especially who you don’t like.

The cast includes some of Wellington’s hottest young actors and recent graduates of Toi Whakari Drama School. Starring Aaron Cortesi (Eagle vs. Shark, Settling, Paua), Lee Smith-Gibbons (Arcadia), Byron Coll (Angels in America), and Anya Tate-Manning (Revenge of the Amazons, Angels in America). These talented actors confidently bring to life this character driven no-nonsense comedy.

If you like your comedies a little bit loose, a little sloshed, with some cake on the side, come see BabyCakes this Fringe 08.

“It’s piss yourself funny” Janie Walker, Playmarket
