Ideas Bobert!

Candy Bones—Son of Warehouse

Candice Roberts puts on this one-person show reminiscent of the vaudevillian era, Chaplin-esque type of comedy where humour was simpler, more direct and ludicrous. Reading the program description first gives you a hint towards the underlying metaphor and a roadmap to what’s happening.

Roberts executes the delivery expertly as she employs various media to evoke the senses. Cute and quaint, this visit into Bobert’s psyche leaves you giggling, sympathising and cringing through this entertaining and fun hour of discovery.

If you don’t like being the centre of attention, it might be a good idea to avoid the front row.
