Adelaide Fringe 2023 "The Dark Side of Parkside" - Tickets on sale now!


 Tickets are now on sale for our 2023 Adelaide Fringe production The Dark Side of Parkside

Following our previous sell-out walking tours through Kensington ("Intriguing from go to woe" Adelaide Now) and Bowden ("a twist on the usual historical exploration" The Adelaide Show), join us this year for a walk through historic Parkside with not one ghost host, but two! Learn about some of Parkside's darker past, including police chases, shootings, the Parkside Asylum, and a tragedy and scandal that feels all too resonant today, in this must-see for history lovers. Written and researched by Shannon Norfolk. 

The walk starts on the footpath outside the Baptist Church at 100 Young Street and loops back at the end. The total distance is about 1.1 km with several stops. We walk rain or shine - ghosts aren't bothered by weather! Due to the nature of the event, tickets are strictly limited. 

Price: $25.00

Bookings: The Adelaide Fringe Fringetix website

Dates: 21, 23, 26, 28 February and 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 March

Our second production for 2019 was Claire Kiechel's Pilgrims , our first show at the Bakehouse Theatre.

Two solo passengers, an ex-soldier and a young woman, are assigned to the same cabin. The cabin steward, an AI called Jasmine, is regretful for this mistake and promises everything will be sorted out. It soon turns out however that the two passengers will have to bunk together for the duration of the journey, and be confined to their cabin due to a vaguely described “quarantine”.

KREEPY KENSINGTON

Our first production for 2019 was "Kreepy Kensington", a historical walking tour written and designed by Oily Rag Theatre co-runner Shannon Norfolk. We had a sell-out season, information on the production is below.  Sex. Death. Crime. Entrepreneurs, murderers, showmen, sex workers and more will have their stories told on an evening walking tour through the suburb of Kensington by your host, a mysterious woman who last walked these streets over a hundred years ago. Even the most genteel suburbs have a dark story or two to tell... February: 16, 17, 19, 21, 24, 25, 27 at 7.30 p.m. March: 1, 3, 4, 7, 10, 11, 13, 14 at 7 p.m. All tickets are $20.00 with a discount for groups of six or more. The walk starts Mary Mackillop Park, off Phillips Street, Kensington, and lasts for approximately 75 minutes. As this is a walking tour rather than a conventional show, the audience is limited to 20 per performance to maximise everyone's comfort and enjoyment of the experience

Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who came along to the sell-out season of Kreepy Kensington . We have been asked whether we will do a public season of the walk outside of the Fringe later this year. We do not have any plans for this currently, but will be sure to post here and on Facebook if we do. If you would like us to do the walk as a private once-off for a group this may be possible, please get in touch to discuss at oilyragtheatre @ gmail.com. We are now taking a short break before rehearsals for our next production, Pilgrims , will get underway in May.
