MEDIA RELEASE, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
19 January 2007

Catch 22 Productions Season of

Mystery Soup

February 21 – 24, 9pm
Happy bar, 118 Tory Street (Corner of Tory and Vivian)
Tickets $10 at the door ($8 Fringe Addicts)

A man walks into a lazy jazz bar, anything could happen next…

Catch 22 Productions’ debut piece is directed by a dynamic duo from Victoria University. In just four nights from February 21st, they will attempt to… take over the world…and of course stun and amaze the unsuspecting audiences of Fringe 07.

Jackson Coe (entering his third year) and Jo Bean (recently completed a Theatre Degree) are newcomers to the Fringe festival. ”We thought, why not see what we could do, so we knocked our heads together and a bunch of ideas fell out!” says Jo.

The story begins with Marvin who is playing a gig with his band the Lemon Pepper Lepers, but he has had a bad day and quite frankly would rather be anywhere else right now.
Suddenly Marvin is dragged into an excitable vortex of coloured light and sound, to be given a mission by Charlie the Chef that he somehow cannot refuse.

Happy is the ideal venue for Catch 22 Productions to stage Mystery Soup. The cross between a bar and a jazz lounge caters to the strong element of live music within the 50-minute show; “we’re a musical bunch, with a hands on approach”

And just what is in this Mystery Soup? “It’s a bit of everything really; an adventure story where the fate of the world hangs in the balance for a moment, along with song, dance, and a barrel (should we say cauldron?) full of laughs!”
