Westerly: The ‘zhuzhed-up’ coffee shop comedy complete with ugly shoes, Bloody Marys, Beyoncé, love’s ‘Eternal Flame’, and a Spanish speaking not-so-creepy man.

There is something in the air at Westerly café today. It’s 7:45am and the waitress is dishing out Bloody Mary’s, the not-so-creepy man is demanding the paper (in Spanish) and ugly shoes are out. These characters are out to change their lives, and if it means resorting to Beyoncé lyrics, then so be it.

Westerly is the perfect hangover cure to the Comedy Festival this year, making its world premiere in the upstairs theatre. A salute Melbourne’s comedy loving, café obsessed culture, this ‘zhuzhed-up’ play will be sure to add some ‘sassy-salt’ and ‘pepper-shake’ to your life.

Think of it as an episode of ‘Friends’ when you let Pheobe take over, ‘zhuzh you up’ and take you out, then you both end up sitting on a balcony over your fifth glass of wine having a deep and meaningful about you’re-not-quite-sure-what.

Instead, it’s very early morning and two strangers navigate their ‘Eternal Flame’, best friends quibble over their friendship (and popular 80’s songs), and the not-so-creepy man and rock-chick waitress can’t help but get up in everyone’s business.

Announced performers include: Lansy Feng (How I Met My Dead Husband, Ophelia Thinks Harder), Tanya Hendy (The Perfect Nonsense, A Scandal in the Weimar), Anzjuli Venter (Academy, The Holy Grail), David de Miguel (The Reveal, All About Toby), Maria Nordenberg (Wednesday) and Dimitri Frangoulis.

Special guest appearance, Siri (The Advanced Robot, iPhone Revolution). The production opens on Wednesday, 24 April 2019 and runs for four consecutive days until Saturday, 27 April 2019. Bookings recommended.
