What is it?
A poignant and playful tale…
Following the success of The World Holds Everyone Apart, Apart From Us – nominated for the Arches Brick Award (Edinburgh Fringe 2011) and Best Theatre, Best Performer and the Underbelly Edinburgh Award (Adelaide Fringe 2011) – Stuart Bowden presents his highly anticipated second solo show The Beast.
A tale adorned with live music and simple storytelling. This poignant and playful story effortlessly flies from sadness to humour in an instant; it touches the heart, and then tickles it (in a non-life-threatening way). Stuart’s smartly crafted writing – including songs accompanied by ukulele and a portable keyboard – combined with his joyful performance make for an uplifting tale of loneliness, isolation and hope.
The Beast was recently nominated for two Melbourne Green Room Awards for Best Writing and Best Male Performer in the Independent Theatre category.
