Comedy team Alan Committie and Robert Fridjhon star in new play, A Load of Bull at the Studio Theatre, Montecasino, from Wednesday, 12 March. A Load of Bull is a woman’s guide to rugby and a whole lot more and is directed by Christopher Weare.
From the Experts on Everything comes a double act of sketches, songs, the occasional limerick and varying degrees of hilarity, explaining the intricacies of rugby for the edification and delight of the fairer sex. There’s an exposé on the Blue Bulls; a history of rugby (and the world); gardening advice for rugby widows; make-up tips for rugby girlfriends and a whole bunch of other whatnot and what-have-you.
From the prerequisite couch in front of the television, Die Manne will lead the audience on a merry run through mauls, dummies, grubbers, hakas, penalties, pills and pushovers, as well as the notorious Sin Bin … all in simple, clear language that even soccer players, cyclists and women can understand.
And then, just as one can’t catch one’s breath for all the laughter, they’ll take one’s questions and discuss any topic that one chooses.
Committie and Fridjhon’s funny bones met across the footlights in Boeing-Boeing and the two comics hit it off, going on to make audiences roar in Perfect Wedding and Funny Business with their crazy antics, off-the-cuff banter and easy rapport.
A Load of Bull will be presented at the Studio Theatre, Montecasino from Wednesday, 12 March to Sunday, 20 April.
