Mommie and the Minister, June 30 to July 3, 2008 ****
Mommie and the Minister
By Ash Flanders and Declan Greene, Sisters Grimm
M.U.S.T. Theatre, Monash University, June 30 to July 3, 2008
Reviewer: Kate Herbert
Mommie and the Minister is outrageous, hilarious and absurd.
Mommie is a vindictive harridan who imprisons her children in the basement, keeping them frightened and obedient. The script is clever, cynical, dripping with irony and deftly directed.
Ash Flanders and Gillian Perry are delectable as the naïve children and casting drag queen, Missfit as Mommie is inspired. The show goes to the Edinburgh Festival in five weeks.
