Get a Life!

About Get a Life!

John Shedden and Finlay McLean (plus skeleton!) perform a series of weird and wonderful sketches, so wacky and off-the—wall, they boggle your mind! You’ll meet a variety of hilarious characters from the land of the living (and the dead).

Judge the Judge, be starstruck by the Astronomer, eavesdrop on the Prime Minister and the President; witness two extraordinary interviews as Hamlet and Shylock return to rewrite their stories! And even throw your undies at Wolf (the heartthrob) Humperhoven!

Out of this kaleidoscope of theatre, social satire, politics and parody emerges a startling view of the crazy world we live in!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Get a Life! are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
