Mad Office (Different Party)
2017. Status: Active
Picture the most mundane place imaginable descending into a world of absurdist fantasy. That’s what physical comedians Trygve Wakenshaw and Barnie Duncan have created for their new show, Mad Office (formerly known as Different Party).
Business drones Grareth Krubb and Dennis Chang whittle away the minutes in the barren office of Ruck’s Leather Interiors, patiently waiting for the phone call that may or may not give them something to actually do. In between the drudgery of the 9-5, the minutiae of office existence are transformed into incredible slapstick as these two clown and comedy performers come together to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Dialogue is minimal, but jokes are plentiful, in this extraordinary celebration of the banal.
This shows huge success at Edinburgh Fringe was followed up with a sold out season at Soho Theatre as part of the London International Mime Festival 2018. Winner of the Best Comedy Award at Adelaide Fringe 2018.
