Temporary – Katie Lees

Amy has found herself in another receptionist contract when she had vowed never to do it again. She smiles politely, makes the perfect cup of coffee and has a delightful phone manner. Her life is a rut of emails, mundane tasks and ridiculous colleagues.

A Bedtime Story – Adelaide Fringe 2019

This may be titled ‘A Bedtime Story’, but it’s way too funny and entertaining to have you drifting off to sleep. I’m intrigued by the idea of being able to “get rich quick” utilising Dungeons & Dragons podcasts and then sharing that with sell out audiences. I thought Dungeons & Dragons and mainstream popularity was an oxymoron…

SAT: Thanks for your time, Dice Paper Role…So it seems that Dungeons & Dragons is pretty popular! Is this something you’ve had an interest in for a long time?

Ben: I actually started playing Dungeons & Dragons when I was about 10 years old, but the biggest hurdle was always finding other people who were into it or knew how to play. Fast forward 10 years to when I met Greg (also a member of DPR), and he ran my very first proper game. We’ve been playing together for almost 20 years now, and the members of our original group still make up the core of our inner circle of friends. When Greg left Queensland for Melbourne in 2016, we started playing with a new group who had never played before. That group ended up as the cast of Dice Paper Role.

Pity Party – Adelaide Fringe 2019

“Two friends follow their dream of creating a sketch show, but as the night goes on they realise their dreams might be a little out of reach. It’s comedy, it’s burlesque, it’s slap stick, it’s Sweaty Pits’ debut show, it’s harder than they thought. A sketch show for those who question what they are doing with their lives and then do it anyway.”

Sam About Town was curious to find out more! Luckily co-creators Frankie McNair and Miriam Slater were happy to oblige.

Pity Party – Adelaide fringe 2019

SAT: Welcome to Adelaide Fringe! Excited?

SP: Excited?! Adelaide Fringe has late night churros, rides, and some of the best performers in the country! You better believe we are excited! CHURROS!

SAT: You wrote your first sketch together in 2016 and have been developing ideas since. Can you tell us more about this show and what inspired you to write it?

SP: This show is an absurd, silly, self reflection on what happens when you riff with your best friend too hard and two years later you are somehow holding an hour long show in your hot little hands. How did we get here? We don’t know. But thank you for having us. The actual show is made up of our favourite sketches and leads to us questioning if what we love doing is valid enough to peruse it with as much vigour as we currently are. It’s heaps meta.
