There’s a happy couple. They’ve been together a few years. They do things couples do: walk together, talk together, meander through IKEA, anal, crosswords on Sunday mornings.
One day he realises she’s The One, so he gets down on one knee and proposes. And she explodes: “Do you actually know what marriage is? It’s a way of turning women into property.” And he gets her point… kind of… but he loves her, and surely she’ll come around. I mean, he’s seen The Taming of the Shrew. Some women just need more convincing than others.
Sexy, funny and smart, FRINGE WORLD sensation THE ONE takes a romantic cliché and impales it with marriage’s grim history. The happy couple unravel to the sound of rhythm and blues in this musical piece that shows why finding The One isn’t always enough.
Winner of the Blaz Award, the West Australian Arts Editor Award, Melbourne Tour Ready Award and finalist for the Martin Sims Award — Perth FRINGE WORLD 2017
