Explore space flight and reach for the stars with Rowena Hutson’s “A Four-Eyed Guide to the Galaxy” on at the Melbourne Fringe Festival 19 Sept – 4 Oct. Drawn from her life-long love of tacky DIY sci-fi sets and an obsessive desire to grow up to be Han Solo, Rowena recreates the vastness of space out of cardboard and tinfoil, taking us into orbit to discover what happens in the great black beyond.

After jiggling her way into our hearts with The Unstoppable Unsung Story of Shaky M, Rowena Hutson is back at the Melbourne Fringe with her second one woman show; an ode to everyone who has ever dreamed of the stars and come crashing back to earth.

Using her own personal brand of storytelling, clowning and physical comedy, Hutson examines the human instinct to explore the universe from her DIY “space junk” set. Why do humans dream of living on barren Mars? And if the Moon is moving away from the Earth, what will we do when it finally abandons us all together? Longing for the good old days when mankind made one giant leap to the moon, Hutson reminds us of our determination to win the “space race” even though the galaxy is a cold, dark, silent place where microorganism aliens are the least of our worries.

Rowena Hutson is an actor and clown with a decade of experience in creating and performing silliness throughout the UK, Europe and Australia. She has recently finished a tour to Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney of her critically acclaimed solo show The Unstoppable, Unsung Story of Shaky M – a one woman show inspired by the plight of Parkinson’s disease. The Sydney season of Shaky M was named in the Top Five Fringe Picks by Time Out Sydney and received a stellar endorsement when a performance was attended by Lucy Lawless, better known as 90s demi-goddess Xena Warrior Princess, who tweeted to her 80,000 followers describing Rowena as “charming”.

Armed with a roll of tin foil, Hutson will set your hearts aflame with a love for the place that once went bang.
