Last week I promoted SNAFU theatre’s Saturday Afternoon Soap Opera at Mirrors upstairs on Brunswick St, and I went along to watch the first performance. A good audience of about 40 people enjoyed the show, which featured a stereotypical soapie style plot revolving around a brother and sister running a bar, holding a dog food drive to collect food for the local lost dogs home in memory of their deceased parents, the local rich people who want recognition for their donation, secret relationships and so on.

The cast are all hilariously browned up with foundation to give the impression of the fake tanned sopaie actor, and some of the costumes were provided by Rose Chong on Gertrude St. It runs each Saturday at 4pm for the next five weeks, and I encourage you to go along and enjoy it.
