Following a sold out season at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, award winning duo Alice Tovey and Ned Dixon are rewriting the man-ual with their 5 star show, Mansplaining, at this year’s Melbourne Fringe Festival.
In their third acclaimed collaboration, “operatic rock goddess” (Aussie Theatre) Tovey and “fierce” composer Dixon take audiences on a journey of masculinity, misogyny and manitude.
Tovey and Dixon’s previous productions ‘Malice’ and ‘Personal Messiah’ won over audiences and critics during sold out seasons in both Melbourne and Adelaide. Their unforgettable original songs are “polished, personable and pitch-perfect” (Radio Adelaide) and razor-sharp humour “sassy, smart and sultry” (The Plus Ones). If you think that’s impressive alliteration, just wait til you hear some of Alice’s new lyrics – they certainly give her 9 minute beat poem about Beyoncé a run for its money.
