The one-woman show, Estelle Astaire’s Woes And Wares will be showing at the Blood Moon Theatre this Winter.
Written, directed, produced and performed by Bianca Seminara, the dark comedy will reveal the consequences of a co-dependent and emotionally challenging mother-daughter relationship under the appearance of a fun, old-fashioned Tupperware party.
Creator, Bianca Seminara said, “Estelle Astaire is a person some might dismiss as being, ‘a bit much’! But underneath her talkative, effervescent personality is the trauma of a young woman who has been raised to doubt herself and essentially growing to believe that she needs to trick people into loving her – that she needs to ‘put on a show’ in order to be worthy of people’s time and attention.”
Audiences will be taken on the emotional yet quirky journey as Estelle overcomes these beliefs and uncovers her true self.
“In her role as host of a Tupperware party, Estelle finally has a captive audience. She allows herself the time and space, and humour, to explore and unravel who she really is,” says creator, Bianca Seminara.
Estelle Astaire’s Woes And Wares was originally a part of the Sydney Fringe Festival 2014, followed by the Bondi Feast 2015 and due to popular demand has come back better than before.
“This is sure to be the most poignant experience you will ever have with plastic boxes.”
