Is youth wasted on the young? Imagine, if you wrote an email and sent it to yourself as a 17-year-old teenager, what advice would you offer? Would you tell yourself to do things any differently? Would you warn of all the difficulties yet to be lived? More importantly, would teenage you listen to advice from your much-older self. This is the dilemma in my new podcast Email to My 17-Year-Old SELF. I hope you enjoy it – Noel Anderson
LOVE. NOUN – a strong feeling of affection:
Kill. VERB – put an end to or cause the failure or defeat of (something)
Devised and directed by Noel Anderson featuring the work of selected Australian writers.
Are you an actor/performer? If you’ve ever been jilted then ‘LOVE KILLS’ offers a little a bit of ‘SWEET ACTING REVENGE.’ Whatever your love story, if you are an actor or actress who can ‘really act’ then director/writer Noel Anderson would love work with you on Love Kills at the Melbourne Fringe Festival 2017.
LOVE KILLS 2017 is a series of tales about love directed by Noel Anderson, featuring Noel’s breakup piece ‘Confide in Me’ and well-known Melbourne playwright Kieran Carroll’s late night duet ‘Celine & Justin’ along with selected stories from the best indie writers in Oz.
Love Kills 2017 looks at the good, the bad, and the funny side of being in love. Noel will be staging LOVE KILLS during the Melbourne Fringe Festival and hopes to see the best of the stories filmed in the future. The show will run approximately 60 minutes with 7 performances planned at Caz Reitop’s Dirty Secrets (past winner of The Melb Fringe Best venue) Smith Street, Fitzroy between 14th Sept – 23rd Sept. Rehearsal would be short and quick.
“I’ve had this idea for a long time. A show much like the ‘Vagina Monologues’ but about men and women, looking at the funny and darker side of loving. I remember thinking, I want brave writers, I want to journey into the underbelly of LOVE. The scripts are ready to go, now I want strong actors to join me. I want the journey for the audience to be comic, surprising, provocative and truthful … I reckon I’ve got the best indie writers in Melbourne, and all that’s missing are the actors” – Director/producer/writer Noel Anderson
