Fresh from successful Adelaide and Melbourne Fringe seasons, Wil Greenway's A NIGHT TO DISMEMBER is a low budget/hi fantasy, heavyhearted comedy about inadequacy, asteroids, and the shark that ate his arms

WIL GREENWAY - A NIGHT TO DISMEMBER

Wil Greenway is as pleased as punch, perhaps even pleased-er, we’re not sure, but either way he’s particularly excited to be making his first appearance in the Auckland Fringe Festival.

Fresh from successful Adelaide and Melbourne Fringe seasons, Wil is proud to present A Night To Dismember, a low budget/hi fantasy heavyhearted comedy about inadequacy, asteroids, and the shark that ate his arms.

Wil Greenway is a Melbourne based writer/performer and co-creator of The Lounge Room Confabulators. Since their sell out debut at Melbourne Fringe 2010, the multi-award winning storytelling duo have uprooted theatre from its natural habitat and transplanted it into the fertile soil of lounge rooms, patios and backyards across the
globe from Melbourne to Adelaide, London to Edinburgh. This Auckland Fringe, Wil presents his debut solo show: A Night To Dismember.

A Night To Dismember is a miraculous story, beautifully told by a charmingly hairy idiot. It’s a sprawling fantasy comedy, replete with lyrical surreal gore, man-eating sharks and talking asteroids. However, the bones of this piece of theatre aren’t exclusively comic. Boiled down, A Night To Dismember is a simple story about isolation and self-loathing. The main theme is inadequacy, something young men are all too familiar with but rarely acknowledge. The central character is a young man, bullied and ashamed. The story follows his search, and struggle to find acceptance, to find home, to be whole

“Awesomely talented.” - The Herald Sun.

“Sincere and charming, the story of A Night to Dismember is at once poetic, hilarious and strangely moving.” ****1/2 - Kryztoff Raw

“Greenway never ceases to deliver the narrative with sincerity and a candour that mesmerises.” - Rip It Up

“The writing is very strong. The style is an interesting and at times hilarious collision between a flowery, slightly mouldy poetry, full of extravagantly detailed and alliterative figures, and rough colloquialisms.” **** - Time Out.

“A stellar storyteller.” Themusic.com.au
