TV icons unite for stage show tour

Australian showbiz legends, Noeline Brown (The Naked Vicar Show), Max Gillies (The Gillies Report) and John Wood (Blue  Heelers) are the entire cast of ‘Mono’ – the brand new classic comedy by Angus FitzSimons (Senior Moments).  

“It’s always been a dream of mine to perform together individually with Max and John” says Noeline.

“I also still dream about sitting my final Latin exam and realising I have  forgotten to wear clothes, but this has nothing to do with promoting Mono.” 

“It is an honour to be asked to do King Lear for the Bell Shakespeare Company,” says Max  Gillies.

“But they didn’t ask, so I’m doing Mono.” 

“I think we could all do with a laugh at the moment” says well-known former Blue Heelers star John Wood.

“That’s why I watch  “Fawlty Towers” after rehearsals for Mono are thankfully over.”  

Producer and Dictator, Angus FitzSimons says “It is a privilege to have these three legends as  the cast. Max, Noeline and John are household names and also recognised in flats”. 

Mono is a comedy revue play in the tradition of Joyce Grenfell, Alan Bennett and Bob  Newhart; with nine brilliant comic characters brought to life through hysterical monologues  in 90 minutes of wit, fun and laughter. 

What is Mono about? It’s about 90 minutes. It’s also about a hectoring Headmistress, a bad Bush Poet (and he don’t know it), a puzzled Policeman, a meandering Minister, a chaotic Conductor, a mindless “Mindfulness” teacher, a surreal Sotheby’s Auctioneer, and a very, very sozzled Mother of the Bride. It’s about pure fun and about to be at a theatre near you in 2022.
