Following the recent success of the National Theatre of Scotland’s The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart, Perth Theatre is reopening its Redrooms performance space once again to present Random Accomplice’s interactive dining comedy Tips on Friday 9 and Saturday 10 May.
Closed to the public, with work on its restoration and redevelopment scheduled to start later this year, Perth Theatre is currently out and about across the area bringing productions to the people in venues from Birnam to Blair Atholl, Kenmore to Kinross. And now, the show will go on in Perth Theatre’s Redrooms before the building work gets fully underway, allowing Perth audiences access to productions such as The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart and Tips as well as two newly commissioned works touring in June; Peter Arnott’s Face and Jacquoranda by Alan Bissett.
Colin McMahon, chief executive of Horsecross Arts, the creative organisation behind Perth Concert Hall and Perth Theatre said: “The Strange Undoing of Prudencia Hart went down so well with several performances selling out and audiences enjoying the interactive cabaret format, that it was an easy decision to reopen the space once again for Tips. This time our audiences have the opportunity to enjoy a meal as part of the production, creating a real immersive experience and a fun evening out that I am sure will prove hard to forget.”
Having played to sell out audiences in 2013, Tips is an interactive dining experience performed by 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Best Actress Nominee Mary Gapinski.Audienceswill enjoy a 2-course meal in Perth Theatre’s Redrooms restaurant before spending a fast and funny evening in the company of waitress, Mary as she tells a tale of tantrums, tiramisu and terror.
Mary is waiting … on your order, on the chef to notice he’s burnt the steak, on tables to be cleared and on that finger licking something to bring the taste buds back to life. Marriage, serial killers and ice-cream – these are just a few of the musings this zany waitress has on her menu. Has she bitten off more than she can chew?Tipspromises to be the ultimate dining experience where food isn’t the only thing on the menu.
