PRESENTED BY Oh That Theatre Company
In the stomach of the icky and yucky process that is grief, ‘Icky’ is a dramedy about a struggling university student processing their father’s death. They retell moments, thoughts and stories throughout their life, however they realise that there's a more sinister truth they have yet to process.
This is a brand new work by award winning Oh That Theatre Company, written by Viki Moananu (The Ghost Show, Beard) and directed by Lizzy Burton-Wood (The Ghost Show, Knights of the Table, Five Words or Less).
‘Icky’ is the Winner of Best Pasifika Play for the Adams NZ Play Award 2023, as well as shortlisted in Playmarket’s Playwrights B425 competition. ‘Icky’ is a story that finds our protagonist reevaluating life in the most reasonable way possible. By blowing it up.
“A breath of fresh air and a wild little ride”
Mentions of suicide, sexual assault, racism and death.
Oh That Theatre Company was started like all good companies are started, absolutely last minute. Starting off with two Victoria students applying for Fringe in 2019, an hour before the the application deadline closed. From then it’s grown into a handful of people with the same vision. That theatre should be fun, wild, camp and sincere.
