Kids these school holidays will finally get an answer to the age-old question in The Court Theatre's new family show: WHY ARE MY PARENTS SO BORING?
Writer and director Dan Bain, creator of A PAINTBOX OF CLOWNS and HANSEL AND GRETEL (and director of The Court's last holiday hit RAPUNZEL), has filled his latest show with mime and physical comedy in a play that unfolds in the style of a silent movie.
WHY ARE MY PARENTS SO BORING follows the hilarious consequences when a mischievous youngster (Laura Daniel) sets out to teach her parents (David Ladderman and Kathleen Burns) to have fun while she is at home during the school holidays.
Bain describes WHY ARE MY PARENTS SO BORING as "a play about playing - taking ordinary or boring things and turning them into something magical through the power of imagination."
WHY ARE MY PARENTS SO BORING runs for a limited season from 4 - 14 July with shows at 11am & 1pm weekdays and 11am Saturdays. Recommended for ages 3+, all tickets $9.
