Whiskey & Boots, as a part of the 2017 Melbourne Fringe Festival, proudly present The One, written and directed by Jeffrey Jay Fowler.

There’s this happy couple. They’ve been together for years. They do things couples do; walk together, talk together, meander through IKEA, crosswords on Sunday mornings. One day he realises she’s The One, so he gets down on one knee and proposes.

And she explodes; “Do you actually know what marriage is? It’s a way of turning women into property.”

And he gets her point…kind of…but he loves her, and surely she’ll come around? I mean, he’s seen The Taming of the Shrew. Some women just need more convincing than others.

Written by award-winner Jeffrey Jay Fowler and starring Georgia King and Mark Storen, The One is a savage theatrical fever dream that takes the 'boy gets girl' cliché and impales it with marriage’s grim history. It's an angry guitar sitting under hissed words as the story of Him and Her breaks apart in front of you. Making it's Melbourne debut, The One is a powerful new Australian work not to be missed.
