From the bizarre mind of Aussie Fringe-favourite Shane Adamczak (Zack Adams, Trampoline) comes an award-winning sci-fi buddy-comedy about a man who lives in another man’s beard.
When a scientific accident causes a mild-mannered janitor to shrink and get stuck in another man’s beard, their unlikely friendship might be exactly what the two directionless men need to set them on the path toward being better men.
Featuring two of Australia’s most established Indy Theatre performers; Shane Adamczak (Trampoline, Zack Adams and The Little Prince) and St John Cowcher (The Red Balloon, Farm and The Adventures Of Alvin Sputnik), the show combines physical theatre, storytelling, musical comedy and indie-rock. The Ballad Of Frank Allen promises to be a festival experience like no other and one of the most weird and original shows you’ll catch at this year’s Darwin Fringe!
