/ Saturday Sessions / Arts / Midsumma – Alberto Di Troia and Hannah Fellowfield “Truly Madly Britney”

 

Alberto Di Troia and Hannah Fellowfield joined Pete and Paul on Saturday Sessions to chat about their show “Truly Madly Britney”. It would be fair to say the show is causing more that a bit of a ripple with their audiences thus far. Based on the life and times of the one and only Britney Speers, the show is a theatre experience not to be missed this Midsumma.

Long term boyfriends, Adam and Steve are die-hard Britney Spears fans and Savage Garden doppelgangers. Together they embark upon a pilgrimage along the holy sites of Britney’s 2007 breakdown. However, when their meet-and-greet tickets for Britney’s concert residency in Las Vegas are inexplicably cancelled, everything begins to fall apart.

As the cracks in their relationship deepen, the couple is forced apart and thrust into an increasingly absurd journey through burgers, morphine, stolen Make-A-Wish gifts, bad Croatian accents, vomit, guns, sex, and mistaken identity. As they draw closer to Britney’s shiny fade, Adam and Steve must find a way to love each other again if they are to escape the dark heart of American pop culture.

Truly Madly Britney is part of a spectacular queer party season at Theatre Works, located in the heart of St Kilda. A new work by Alberto Di Troia, Truly Madly Britney is new Australian writing that is loud, queer, hilarious, considered and surprising.
