Simon's Final Sound

By Finegan Kruckemeyer

11 – 21 December 2013
Theatre Royal Backspace

... a finely produced and acted adult comedy.
— Michael McLaughlin, The Mercury

Here’s Blue Cow Theatre’s Christmas present to you and yours.

We want to show off our favourite funny Tasmanian actors. So we persuaded the multi-award-winning Tasmanian Finegan Kruckemeyer to put finger to keyboard, and lined up the comedic talent: Guy Hooper, Mel King, Jeff Michel and John Xintavelonis. What a foursome!

Fin’s dreamed up a play about people who try, fail, try again, and fail better.

There’s Simon, who’s going deaf, and Michael who hasa dull bank job. Ginny’s life lacks surprise, and Claudeis an idiot but he does have a boat! Together they embark on an epic South Seas adventure in search of a magical – but possibly non-existent – island.

It’s chock full of silliness, and aimed purely to entertain.
