21 November – 2 December 2018

Louis is a failing novelist, which wouldn’t be the case if he’d stop messing with tense and obscuring narrative. He used to be a theatre reviewer, and he’d still be doing that if a red box hadn’t been invented that writes perfect reviews. His girlfriend would still be around if he’d stopped taking her to the theatre, and he’d have a home if he hadn’t worn out his welcome at his parent’s investment property.

One thing Louis does have is grit; he ain’t gonna let no thing or no body bring him down. But sometimes art happens, and when it does… two words… pens and eyes. Pens. Eyes.

"I doubt that I will ever see a play like this again, and in a way I hope I never do. It’s very rare that a piece of art is able to be so uniquely captured and presented. A play of this intellect, strangeness and calibre deserves to live on in its own individual legacy. A must see for those who are seeking a refreshing and escapist experience in the theatre."
THEATRE PRESS

"80 Minutes No Interval has been brilliantly conceived and executed with only a few basic props. Some of the lines are absolutely sensational – pointed and hilarious... Curtain call saw a spontaneous outpouring of love. This show is, indeed, something special – spectacular even."
THE BLURB

"The cast has mastered sharp changes in performance style, including silent clowning, precise comedy of manners and mordant, heavily ironized black humour, to bring out the best in this cunning, funny and swift comic horror."
