Beating the boredom in Dunedin

Fresh from the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Riverside Theatres will present the Sydney premiere of the award-winning, comedy-theatre show, My Best Dead Friend, on October 11-12.

December 1998. Dunedin, New Zealand. High summer in a town where there is not a lot to do. Restless and inspired by reading Karl Marx, Anya and her friends set out on a night of vigilante poetic justice in an attempt to liberate Dunedin from its toxic masculinity.

Told through a series of tragi-comic reflections of the time and ten years later, My Best Dead Friend is a hilarious tale about death, friendship, revolution, unfulfilled love ... and a possum.

Part stage-play and part stand-up, My Best Dead Friend has been created by New Zealand theatre-makers Isobel MacKinnon and Anya Tate-Manning, who is also the star of the show.

My Best Dead Friend is a joyful and vibrant coming of age story all about friendship.

My Best Dead Friend on October 11-12 at Riverside Theatres, corner of Church and Market Sts, Parramatta. Adult $49/$44. Available https://riversideparramatta.com.au/show/my-best-dead-friend/ or 8839 3399.
