Brisbane Festival, QUT and La Boite Theatre Company present



13 - 14 Sept | Theatre Republic - La Boite Studio


James Rowland and Tangram Theatre (UK)

Australian Premiere

"🟉🟉🟉🟉 - Each story is perfectly pitched, their easy but genuine humour delivered with the light touch of a stand-up comedian, while the many emotional hits are landed with masterful dramatic urgency." THE SCOTSMAN

A couple of years ago, James’s friends Sarah and Emma asked for his sperm to start a family. This is an epic story about friendship, faith, life, death, foxes, snow buddies, and trying to do the right thing – even when it involves taking all your clothes off.

This work is part of Songs of Friendship, a revelatory storytelling cycle about love, life, friendship, death – and the ridiculous, sublime muddles of everyday existence. Combining story, comedy and song – each accompanied by James’s own music live on stage – these shows have been performed hundreds of times across the world to awards and rave reviews, and now make their Australian premiere in Brisbane. Directed by Daniel Goldman, these productions can be seen individually as stand-alone experiences or enjoyed together as one epic trilogy on Saturday.

Songs of Friendship is comprised of Team Viking, A Hundred Different Words for Love, and Revelations.

This performance contains coarse language, sexual references, partial nudity and adult themes. Suitable for audiences 13+ years.
