Silo Theatre

Award-winning German playwright Marius von Mayenburg throws theatrical conventions at the fourth wall until it breaks as Perplex offers audiences a comedy like no other to round out Silo Theatre’s 2016 season.

Couple A arrive home from holiday to find their house out of sorts. Couple B had been housesitting and haven’t paid the electricity bill. Couple B arrive home to find that Couple A have let themselves in and have moved their things around. It’s all a bit perplexing.

Described as an absurdist deconstruction of reality, identity and theatre itself, Perplex Is a deeply funny and incredibly bonkers farce about nothing and everything at the same time. Kicking off just like any other domestic comedy, Perplex quickly devolves into a nonsensical game of blurred lines and morphed characters. From the appearance of an elk, Nietzsche and a Nazi to nude discussions of Darwin – this is one hell of a mind-bender.

In a show with very few rules and surreal character swapping, Silo will be testing the wits of some of New Zealand’s best comedic performers: Natalie Medlock (The Blind Date Project, Shortland Street) as “Natalie”, Sam Snedden (The Book of Everything, Private Lives) as “Sam”, and in their Silo debuts – Billy T Award nominee Nic Sampson (Funny Girls, Jono & Ben) as “Nic” and Kura Forrester (Belief: The Possession of Janet Moses, Super City II) as “Kura”.
