The Professor

Monday, 18 February 2019 to Saturday, 2 March 2019
Adelaide Fringe

The university’s most peculiar professor has made a remarkable discovery. He’s thrilled – but why is his lecture today even stranger and wilder than usual? Come attend an odd, surreal comedy about Dickens, shipwrecks, the Venus de Milo, fainting poets, and the fate of Western Culture.

Writer Brian Parks (IMPERIAL FIZZ), director John Clancy (THE EVENT) and actor Bob Paisley (BILL CLINTON HERCULES) team to bring this premiere to Adelaide. 

“A refreshingly mischievous, inventive author”: The Times of London
'The Event', "It’s quite a piece. It takes quite an actor." The Barefoot Review
Paisley is charming and eloquent." The Clothesline

"It’s one of those things that provokes different laughs and guffaws from different parts of the audience at different times. But everyone laughs at the end, whether they want to or not"
Samela Harris - Barefoot Review
