Abstract: After a late scratching from Series Three of Bakehouse Theatre’s "Festival of One", comes the welcome addition of "Laughing Wild", a thirty minute monologue from American writer Christopher Durang. Taking its title from Samuel Beckett - “Laughing wild amidst severest woe” - it features an unnamed young woman who is repeatedly colliding with the world. "The Getaway Bus", written and performed by Ingle Knight, is located in Perth - on the loop from Mirabooka to Mundaring Weir, to be precise. Thomas Carew is a gormless young Englishman fresh off the migrant boat and lost in Ockerland. A chance meeting on the bus with Moffy, a Welsh refugee with vaulting ambitions as an actress has Thomas drawn into an amateur theatrical presided over by Frank, a tyrant for Thespis and, of course, conman to boot.
