The 2010 Fringe Festival is a vehicle for director Adam Donald to bring to audiences this third in a series of contemporary, political, hilarious, fairytales, Goldilocks and the Three Queers. Set in 1970’s San Francisco, Donald awakens the gay rights movement by literally getting the audience involved in a rally! With a theatrical cocktail of music, mischief and mayhem, audiences will experience the strangely outlandish morals from the well-known stories we all grew up with. A new take on the classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the show is very much for grown-ups, as Goldilocks explores the world of the 1970’s with drug culture, gay activism and religious cults.

Adam’s shows are ‘out there‘, the comedy is extreme, but is well articulated with a strong historical commentary. “Donald wants to literally wake audiences up” especially gay audiences as to what was happening in the 1970’s "our generation has grown complacent, we take for granted the equal rights we have today and we forget how hard people had to fight for those rights."

Goldilocks has been devised by the actors Bronwen Pattison as ‘Goldilocks‘, who has been sent on a mission to convert as many heathens as she can and bring them to the light of Jesus, Simon Leary as ‘Baby Queer‘, Martine Gray as ‘Momma Queer’ and Roger Johnson as ‘Papa Queer‘. With original music by Tane Upjohn-Beatson, the team have created a outlandishly bizarre, unexpectedly surprising comedy which is sure to entertain.
