[COMEDY/DIGITAL MEDIA – VIC]
Fresh and engaging, Marcus Willis has us really wanting to know what happened next as he takes us on a journey through his grandfathers’ diary.
Alan was a lovely gentle-man who ran a farm in Victoria but unfortunately passed over. While helping grandma clean out the wardrobe, Marcus comes across grandpa’s diary, but is unable to read his cursive handwriting. So, as an up-and-coming millennial, he gets it transcribed offshore so he can access it in a digital form, opening up a portal into his forbears’ lifestyle.
Perjuglant will challenge those of us who think we know everything there is to know. Life is changing, orientation is not predictable, and renting has so many more options, what with Airbnb being a profit-making option and Uber changing the face of transport; enough to start a millennial writing his own Trauma Diary.
Marcus is a gifted writer and poet, mixes up his topics, invites us into his own awkward relationship, and manages to bring us back to what matters, connection with others. This show is original, contemporary, and actually quite funny.
Perjagulant continues at rhubarb, rhubarb at RAJOPOLIS at Raj House, at various times, until Sun 11 Mar.
