It’s Fortitude Valley of the Shadow of Death;
it’s Campbell Newman Soup;
It’s Brisneyland baby!!!
In an alley way in BrisVegas for the Anywhere Theatre Festival, four writers under the captaincy of break out director Kat Henry delivered a show that swiftly developed a cult following.
SIDE EFFECT is somewhere between a late 90s MTV nu-metal video clip and a police report. Somewhere between the most important meal of the day and the first time you passed out with out any pants in a share house backyard after playing ‘Goon Of Fortune’ with a hill hoist clothesline and a shiny, sack of wine.
The stories are about young love, young lust, and young lurid fantasies.
WARNING: As this show is outside in a dirty laneway this show comes with blankets and heaters but you should bring your own fingerless gloves and hipflasks
“One hell of a show.”
“The perfect example of why I love fringe theatre. It’s messy, it’s thought provoking, it’s unapologetic, it’s sexy.”
Beat Magazine / M. Clark
“some SHOCKINGLY BEAUTIFUL WRITING, some TERRIFICALLY STRONG ACTING and some GUARANTEED LAUGHS!””
“MKA FUCKS THIS CITY IN A BACK ALLEY, WHISPERS DIRTY SECRETS AND STALKS OFF INTO THE NIGHT”
“Full of sex and dark humour and it really does conjure Fortitude Valley in all its brutal boozing vulgarity.”
