'Too Stinky to Bear' is a one act play.

The play has an 80s feel to it. Picture 'ET' and 'The Goonies'. It blends fantasy, drama, and comedy. At the heart of this play is the friendship between the three children. Filled with plenty of laughs, adventure, and the reality of human frailty. ‘Too Stinky to Bear’ is a fun, short play - that both children and adults can enjoy. A reminder of how important friendships can be, and how children simply enjoy each moment for what it is.

Louise has Pulmonary Hypertension and needs a lung transplant. Her condition worsens and is exacerbated by her Mum (mistakenly) throwing out her favourite teddy because he’s too stinky. The teddy was given to her by her late Grandpa. Her best friends (Nick and Billy) decide to aid Louise in breaking out of hospital, and head to the mysterious Tip in order to find Teddy. A few days prior to this “expedition”, Nick mentioned that his Dad said things, “come to life at The Tip at night.” This comment is brushed off by Billy as nonsense. However, they soon discover that things do come life at the Tip.

Audition / Rehearsal / Production dates

These dates aren't set in stone - but it's unlikely they will change dramatically.
First rehearsal: 4/7/2019
Last rehearsal: 18/8/2019
Performances: September 2019

Job compensation

STAGE MANAGER

I'm looking for a Stage Manager who is efficient and task oriented. I need someone who loves writing things down and can complete check lists. Basically a person who can balance out my strengths and weaknesses.

Anyone, aged 18 and over from New South Wales, Australia

STAGEHAND X 2

Looking for some amazing Stagehands! Maybe you're looking for some theatre experience? Perfect. Fringe Festival is fast paced - so I need people who are physically able, and can work smoothly and efficiently.

SET DESIGNER

Looking for a Set Designer who is interested in painting, paper-mache. The set will be kept as simple as possible in order to allow easy set up and smooth transitions. They should border on fantasy, such as: extremely tall (painted) bookshelf, use of diagonal and curved lines, very bright colours etc. The three main set pieces will be created to look and feel drastically different to each other.

Anyone, aged 18 and over from New South Wales, Australia

LIGHTING DESIGNER

Looking for an inventive and open minded person who can create a believable - yet fantastical world. I haven't had the venue confirmed yet so I'm unsure of what lighting equipment will be available.
