Get Out of My Letter Box! : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Get Out of My Letter Box!

Hope is one organic banana away from saving the world and Alexia is one question short of an origin story. Can these neighbours navigate the space between them? A funny, heartbreaking tale of human connection.

GET OUT OF MY LETTER BOX tells the mad-cap story of an estranged daughter and an isolated Mother in search of connection, identity, and love. Thirty years on from an early adoption, eccentric inventor and ex-circus clown Alexia moves next door to eco-warrior, Hope, who she believes to be her biological mother. Walls tell secrets, letter boxes deliver memories, and an otherworldly invention meddles with the rules of engagement, in this explosive tale of human connection.

Fusing physical theatre, clown and elements of the absurd, GET OUT OF MY LETTER BOX journeys through the shifting minds and hearts of an unlikely pair as their worlds are turned upside down.

Written and performed by Katie Burson and Beth Kayes, GET OUT OF MY LETTER BOX was supported through an eleven month arts residency awarded to Katie Burson in 2019 at Studio One Toi Tū, Auckland.

GET OUT OF MY LETTER BOX features sound design by Emi Pogoni, set design by Ruby Read, lighting design by Paul Bennett and direction by Ruth Dudding.

Beth Kayes won ‘Judges Special Commendation for Performance’ at Auckland Fringe 2017 for her solo Once There Was A Woman and more recently Beth was nominated for ‘Best Performer’ at NZ Fringe 2019. “Kayes is a charismatic performer ... perfectly comfortable performing on all scales, melding her adeptness with physical theatre with the poetry of her script”- Andrew Parker TheatreScenes

“Katie Burson... should be lauded for their intensive physical and emotional investment to the piece. Their discipline to their craft, quite simply, warrants unabashed praise.” - Matt Baker, TheatreScenes

"A polished execution of intricate contemporary and traditional dance material by two talented physical theatre professionals"- 'Afakasi', Hannah Stannard, Theatreview
