Hedonism’s Second Album (and here comes Margi Brown Ash to adjudicate the Sunshine Coast Theatre Festival)!

 

Hedonism’s Second Album is a new Australian comedy from David Burton and Claire Christian.

 

It’s for anyone who’s ever been let down by their favourite band, or their best mates.

In a music studio in surburban Brisbane four men gather in an attempt to build upon a surprisingly successful first album. Newly clean, front man Gareth is losing his cool. Lead guitarist Chimney has got cold feet. Bass player Michael is keeping secrets and Sumo, the drummer, has vanished. Meet Hedonism.

Hedonism have rocketed from pub gigs to support acts, international tours and brand management. It’s a whole new world. They’ve been given a license to drink, be rockstars and live, well, hedonistically. They’ve been give permission to never grow up, as long as they record their second album.

After an all-weekend bender involving under-age girls, bikies, racial slurs on YouTube and a wombat from Australia Zoo, record label exec Phil is sent in to pull the boys into line and prevent the looming PR disaster. During the testosterone-fueled fallout, closely-guarded secrets are laid bare and friendships tested.

Hedonism’s Second Album premieres tonight at The Loft as part of La Boite Indie, and continues until August 30.

With Sunshine Coast support bands, The Flumes & The Floating Bridges, Hedonism’s Second Album comes to Nambour Civic Centre on September 4 2014.

Margi is adjudicating the one-act play Open Section (this weekend) and Youth Section (next weekend). I’m looking forward to hearing her comments about our competing actors and directors, and particularly, her advice to younger performers. Previously, we’ve welcomed Andrea Moor, Kate Foy, Karen Crone and many more industry experts, all of whom have offered valuable feedback to our local and visiting theatre companies and at the same time, enlightened audience members about playwriting and production elements.

This year, for the first time, we’ve added a week-long program of events and moved the entire festival to the lovely little Lind Lane Theatre in Mitchell Street, Nambour. It IS little, accommodating only 100 punters per session, so book early for all sessions and special events, which include a forum and debate, workshops and theatresports.
