Shepherded through the thorny wilderness of Independent Theatre by a cat possessed by the ghost of Judy Garland, three intrepid playwrights journey in search of the Most Wholesome Play Ever.
Together they take on Sironies (ironic Sirens), the Cisclops (cis male cyclops), the Ghosts of Dead Theatre Blogs, and 16 modernised Shakespeare adaptations. But will they stay strong, or will the Funding Wizard best them again?
Three years ago by the icy Shoalhaven river, under the crisp winter sunlight of Bundanon Trust, playwrights Ang Collins, Charles O’Grady, and Eliza formed an unbreakable bond. United by the bigness of their hearts, and their fondness for being nice to people, the trio vowed that they would never view each other as competition – friends through thick and thin, through hits and flops.
Now it’s 2019, and the world is a darker and far more cynical place that these tender souls ever anticipated. Troubled by ubiquitous cruelty and a fractious theatre industry, they set out to change the world, with the Most Wholesome Play Ever.
Project Bestfriendship is a heart-comedy created by the three nicest people you’ll ever meet.
