I Know Theres A Lot Of Noise Outside But You Have To Close Your Eyes

I Know Theres A Lot Of Noise Outside But You Have To Close Your Eyes

Katie and Imogen are BFF's. BFF's 4 EVA. Nothing can tear them apart. Nothing. Nuh. No way. Not vodka raspberry's. Not the yarra river. Not Sportsgirl. Not Feminism. No way. BFF. F and F and F. Two childhood friends with nothing left in common strive to connect. A haunting insight into the bleak underbelly of female friendships, I Know There's A Lot Of Noise Outside But You Have To Close Your Eyes is an explosive exploration of femininity, prejudice and rage. With cocktails. Transforming a grungy Fitzroy sharehouse into an unsettling theatrical wasteland, A Lot Of Noise. . . is tipped to be one of the highlights of this year's Fringe Festival. Performed to a strictly limited audience, this unique work showcases some of Melbourne's most exciting young theatre artists.

part of the 2011 Melbourne Fringe Festival. Created by Allison Wiltshire, Zoey Dawson and Anna Mccarthy
