A CURIOUS AND FUNNY ENCOUNTER WITH A MAN A LAUNDROMAT AND SOME DIRTY WASHING
NEW SEASON FOR MIDSUMMA FESTIVAL : 22-26th JANUARY 2014 @ THE BUTTERFLY CLUB, MELBOURNE
The Full Load
A curious and funny encounter with a man a Laundromat and some dirty washing.
Krispin K is an outrageous fashionista running a Laundromat in Altona called The Full Load. Krispin has no time for a boyfriend or a life outside The Full Load. Krispin loves his work, he rescues designer clothes from the bottom of laundry baskets, styles his customers along with their washing and matches people like socks, best of all, he loves to put on his customers clothes and imagine their lives.
Strange and wonderful things happen at The Full Load, but a dark shadow looms inside one of the dryers, things are not quite what they seem…
The Full Load is a wild ride through the tumbled and often outrageous world of Krispin K and his Laundromat. Krispin asks his audience the big questions; what do our clothes reveal about us? what stories lay hidden in the fabrics? and why oh why do we trust strangers with our dirty underwear? Krispin is very fussy about who he will accept as a customer; do you have what it takes to have your washing done at The Full Load? Come and join Krispin as he styles the audience and stitches together a story you will never forget.
Written and performed by Nigel Sutton a master storyteller and skilled improviser who likes his audiences to become a part of the experience. Directed by Roslyn Oades writer and director of Fast Cars & Tractor Engines, Stories of Love & Hate, I'm Your Man.
This performance is very funny, highly interactive and quite surprising. Origionally performed in a Laundromat in Altona as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival in 2011 to sell out shows. The Full Load promises to change your view of the humble Laundromat forever.
