Noeline Brown heads back to the stage

The cast of Mono.

Noeline Brown has been on Australian stages and screens since the 60s but even now in her 80s she still finding new and interesting roles.

She comes out of lockdown to perform in Bunbury Production’s first national tour of “Mono”, a comedy tour de farce from three of Australia’s best loved performers.

Joining Noeline (The Naked Vicar Show and Blankety Blanks) are Max Gillies (The Gillies Report) and John Wood (Blue Heelers).

Mono is the brand new comedy by Angus FitzSimons (Senior Moments).

“It’s always been a dream of mine to perform together individually with Max and John” Noeline Brown. “I also still dream about sitting my final Latin exam and realising I have forgotten to wear clothes, but this has nothing to do with promoting “Mono”.

“It is an honour to be asked to do “King Lear” for the Bell Shakespeare Company,” quipped Max Gillies. “But they didn’t ask, so I’m doing “Mono”.

“I think we could all do with a laugh at the moment” John Wood added.

“That’s why I watch “Fawlty Towers” after rehearsals for “Mono” are thankfully over”.

Producer and Dictator Angus FitzSimons says “It is a privilege to have these three legends as the cast. Max, Noeline and John are household names and also recognised in flats”.

“Mono” is a comedy revue play in the tradition of Joyce Grenfell, Alan Bennett and Bob Newhart; with nine brilliant comic characters brought to life through monologues in 90 minutes of wit, fun and laughter.

What is “Mono” about? It’s about 90 minutes.

It’s also about a hectoring Headmistress, a bad Bush Poet (and he don’t know it), a puzzled Policeman, a meandering Minister, a chaotic Conductor, a mindless “Mindfulness” teacher, a surreal Sotheby’s Auctioneer, and a very, very sozzled Mother of the Bride.

Mono -8 March Brisbane Redland Concert Hall 2pm and 7:30pm
