The madness and amazingness of the Adelaide Fringe is almost upon us, and that means scrolling through hundreds of shows and trying to decide which ones you will see this year… But if there is one show that you do see, it should be this…
Following an Opening Night standing ovation, and sell-out Melbourne shows, Andi Snelling’s critically-acclaimed solo debut, #DearDiary now hits the Adelaide Fringe 2016.
Unwittingly written over 24 years, #DearDiary is an existential joyride into forgotten memories. Pulled verbatim from 5,000+ pages of her lifelong diary collection, Andi Snelling’s comically tragic tale unpacks the baggage we all carry. With self-quoting satire, physical storytelling and song, Andi bares her soul and hashtags the heck out of it. P.S – Look out for your own lost diary in the #DearDiary Treasure Hunt on the streets of Adelaide. Finders Keepers!
Andi Snelling is an accomplished actor and improviser with a diverse, international career. She has been on stage her entire life, having grown up as a dancer, competing at national level. She trained at the prestigious Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and performed in Europe for 7 years, including in London’s West End and for the BBC. Upon returning to her hometown of Melbourne, she discovered an abandoned box, full of diaries never before read… until now. The result is her self-described ‘Museum of Thoughts’, which she is delighted to share with curious Adelaide audiences.
