Table-for-Two
This year The Sydney Fringe Festival has partnered with Q Theatre in Penrith to provide more opportunities for Western Sydney based indie artists through the creation and presentation of two fantastic shows.

Table for Two? and Obviously are two new theatre works by Q Indie artists Will Tredinnick and Vonne Patiag; premiering at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre between 13- 15 September.

Obviously is a sitcom following four twenty-something BFFs living together in an apartment; and the assumptions they are labelled with – that they are ‘obviously’ queer, ‘obviously’ ethnic, ‘obviously’ Westies. The work is inspired by 90s TV show nostalgia, complete with laugh tracks and ‘live’ credits. In Obviously, writer Vonne Patiag hopes to reclaim the sitcom format for modern audiences, featuring performers and storylines that reflect the diversity of Western Sydney.

In the physical comedy Table for Two? a dysfunctional restaurant prepares for its grand re-opening, and the staff soon realise they might be in for a long night. From Blumenthalian gastronomic experiments to mixological mishaps, prepare to be whisked off your feet and sieved into a melting pot of characters, calamity and caviar.

A unique theatre experience full of good laughs, terrible table service and more audience participation than you bargained for, Table for Two? takes your order and then forgets it, asks for it again and then loses the docket.

Originally developed in residence at Q Theatre and now served up as part of the Q Indie season at the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre, Table for Two? and Obviously challenge both performer and audience to bring their arts appetite for a night that is sure to be remembered.

Bookings can be made through the website or by phone: 4723 7600
