MELBOURNE FRINGE FESTIVAL 2019
ALEX THEATRE ST. KILDA. SEPTEMBER 24 - 28
"Grunge is BACK, BABY!" - 3RRR Radio
London, 1980. Sid Vicious is dead. Punk is past it. Mods are old hat. A new youth cult is, according to its bizarre disciples, set to sweep Britain. Based on the true story of the small London club and its visionary "New Romantic" inhabitants that changed the world.
BLITZ is an ode to twenty-something city life: shitty housemates who won't pay the bills, the exploration of gender and sexuality, hooking up with anyone in a five mile radius and your life revolving around going to the club. If you haven't warmed up your tea using your zippo lighter underneath the tea cup 'cause your gas got cut off, have you really ever lived?
Presented by Melbourne Fringe Festival with support from the City of Port Philip.
