Brisbane Festival is taking one weird and wacky road show to suburban parks across the city with Are We There Yet
Set in a caravan park, the world premiere production Are We There Yet? is a classic travellers’ tale about a bunch of characters moving to Brisbane and takes a hilarious look at what makes up a family.
With influences from The Kumars to old school vaudeville, the Are We There Yet? caravans will role into parks across Brisbane over three weekends.
Disillusioned defactos Davo and Gemma have travelled to Queensland from Victoria looking for a new life while the more conservative Revins from Canberra are looking for a place to retire. The Lees from South Australia are seeking a rural lifestyle while mad nut musician Dan doesn’t seem to come from or be going anywhere.
Based around the antics of this eclectic bunch of families and idiosyncratic characters whose pathscross one night, the musical theatre show promises to make audiences laugh, cringe, cry, clap and sing along.
Get ready for some catchy tunes, spectacular circus, slapstick, true blue tales of life, cringe-worthy Dad jokes and a bash away at the old piano.
Are We There Yet? is a free roving roadshow that brings family-friendly theatre to nine parks across Brisbane this September for Brisbane Festival 2010.
