Presenting Idiot Presents:
Idiot Presents was an international collaboration between Tim Monley (Australia) and Katy Houska (USA) with assistance from Mark Winstanley (UK). They all met while studying at l’Ecole Philippe Gaulier in France. Katy is based in Albuquerque and works as an artist and producer in theatre and film, mostly with Tricklock Theatre Company. Mark Winstanley is co-founder of Clown Lab in Manchester, UK.
Together they created Play Actually, an absurd comedy about dating and romanticism. Sex dolls were used to recreate an online romance in Second Life, a dating guru taught the audience all about NLP and the power of ‘negging’, and a charmingly neurotic woman disappoints her suitors with her preference for pets.
Play Actually toured Australia, Czech Republic, Canada and USA, appearing at ten fringe and theatre festivals. We performed to sell out crowds and received five star reviews.
