Out of the Ordinary

Tuesday, 4 October 2016 to Saturday, 15 October 2016

Nobody wants to live an ordinary life, do they? Everyone wants their 15 minutes of fame. Even 15 seconds will do. Not Theodora Sprout...

Theo rages against the age of unearned celebrity. She doesn’t want to make a mark on the world or do anything but live a decent and dignified life.  If only her family would cooperate...

Her father desperately chases fame, determined to become a rock star while seeking enlightenment from an endless parade of mail order gods and goddesses, her boyfriend embraces notoriety as an internet troll and her mother is chiefly concerned with what the church thinks, even though she’s only in it for the cake stalls.

And then there’s the baby, of course. She’s a problem.

Life has never been further from ordinary.

A battle across generations, Out of the Ordinary captures the dilemma of navigating the modern world, where an obsession with what we leave behind threatens to swallow our present.

"guides its audience into the realm of the fantastic, where the ordinary can become the extraordinary. For the audience, it’s an exciting night out!"
The Adelaidian
"Joh Hartog has done a great job of squeezing all of the laughs out of this very comic script – don’t miss it."
Glam Adelaide
"Director Joh Hartog and his cast – have done an excellent job in bringing Vickery-Howe’s great dialogue to life... all whip out witty comebacks and zingers with perfect comic timing."
