One of Western Australia’s hottest new outfits on the Independent Arts scene, Whiskey & Boots, are bringing their award winning production, The One, to Kalamunda Performing Arts Centre on 10 August.
Mayor John Giardina said, “The Kalamunda Performing Arts Centre regularly plays host to well-known artists and performers. The line-up for the rest of 2018 is no different, with the likes of award winning performers Lior and the Grigoryan Brothers set to take the stage in the coming months. We’re excited to confirm Whiskey & Boots will be joining the long list of exciting shows coming to Kalamunda.”
The One invites audiences into the lives of Him and Her, a happy couple who’ve been together for years. They do things couples do; walk together, talk together, meander through IKEA and do crosswords on Sunday mornings until he realises she’s the one, so he gets down on one knee and proposes.
Starring the remarkable talents of Georgia King and Mark Storen, The Onetakes a romantic cliché and impales it with marriage’s grim history. It’s a musical re-telling of the classic story of boy meets girl, boy proposes to girl, and everything falls apart.
Writer and Director Jeffrey Jay Fowler said “I had long wanted to write a show about marriage. When the opportunity to work with Georgia and Mark came up I saw it as a great chance to work with a real life couple on a play about coupling. I wanted to research marriage and use its history as a way of exploring why we fall in love and couple up for life, but I also wanted to create a play with heart and a very personal story."
Fowler is a graduate of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts and The National Institute of Dramatic Art, associate director of the Black Swan State Theatre Company and co-founder of The Last Great Hunt. He is well known for previous award winning works including Fag/Stag, Minnie and Mona Play Dead and Hope is the Saddest.
The One was the 2017 winner of the Melbourne Fringe Tour Ready Award and winner of the WA Arts Editor Award for Fringe World for 2018. The production also earned Fowler a Blaz Award for best new play.
Tickets cost $27 per adult and $22 for concession card holders.
