“everything you don’t see in the well-edited, hyper-saturated, expertly captioned Instagram weekend of two best friends. . . ”
Funny things happen when you combine 20-something women with wine, gin and anything else from behind the bar. After two years at New York Film Academy, local actor Gretel Sharp and Caitlin Duff have teamed up for The Feels, playing the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
The Feels is everything you don’t see in the well-edited, hyper-saturated, expertly captioned Instagram weekend of two best friends. Too often, the fast rush into lust and infatuation is shamed as we strive to out-chill each other in modern courtship, but the huge arc of beautiful emotions and mortifying future memories that comes with catching “the feels” should be celebrated.
If you’ve ever caught “the feels” for someone (or something…), this show is for you. If you’ve ever felt something touch your skin, this show is for you. If you’ve ever chugged Passion Pop, weeping over the bank balance on your phone screen, ruining the phone because RICE DOESN’T DRY TEARS, this show is for you.
The walking emotional rollercoasters and creators of the show, Gretel Sharp and Caitlin Duff, have taken to the Melbourne scene, where Duff has been slogging it out in the local stand-up comedy scene and Sharp has been working with various Theatre companies such as Make Believe Theatre, Dionysus Theatre, as well as working as a fairy.
With a successful debut at Melbourne Fringe Festival 2016, the melodramatic girls hope to continue and extend the celebration of the overactive imagination and colourful thought patterns of a female in heat.
Where: Number Twelve - 12 Bourke Street Melbourne.
When: 11th-15th & 18th-22nd of April - 10.30pm
