Wannabe, The Fringe Bar, 24 - 27 February, 8.30pm

Do you remember the 90s? The chatter rings, tamagotchis, and midriffs? How about the boy bands? The white shirts in the wind, screaming fans and merchandise galore. The tunes, the dance moves, and the hair. So dope.

Boy Bands helped shape the decade. And our identities too. The cool one. The nice one. The blonde one. The black one…And that other guy. Which one were you? With the Backstreet Boys reaching New Zealand shores in March boy band fever is going to peak. Come to The Fringe Bar this February to experience the world’s most forgotten boy band sensation.

Wannabe, a quirky new solo show devised by Guy Langford and directed by Erina Daniels, explores aspiration, the tall poppy syndrome, and the role the media plays in shaping who we “wannabe”.

Guy Langford is a 2009 Acting Graduate from Toi Whakaari: New Zealand Drama School. In his final year Guy played Thomas Baxter in Eli Kent’s critically acclaimed Bedlam, created the “infectiously energetic” (Salient) solo work Hurry! Hurry! Wait… And was a member of the Chapman Kipp award winning ensemble production The Caucasian Chalk Circle.
