LAST WORDS
last words

by and with Roy Doliner
 
featuring Eddie Zengeni


A comedy of Biblical proportions (about mortality, of all things!) by award-winning playwright and bestselling author Roy Doliner sharing the stage with popular singer-performer Eddie Zengeni of Hot Rocks fame. We won't give away the plot here, but some of the rave revues from US performances will give you the idea:

"Thou shalt laugh!... A wickedly droll spoof that depicts what really went on between G-d and Moses on top of Mount Sinai, LAST WORDS is an unqualified gem... the barbs fly fast and furious... Doliner has taken a theology class and put it on stage in a highly entertaining fashion without diluting its message...
what is actually a faithful update of the book of Exodus becomes a wildly hysterical romp! Original comedy this sharp doesn't come around all that often.
Somebody say Amen!"

- XS Magazine

"G-d and Moses do a vaudeville turn!... uninhibited, anything-goes-for-a-laugh!" -The Sun Sentinel

"Fascinating... Amazingly clever, fast-paced repartee!" - Eastsider


"Delightful set of musical comedy…wonderfully twisted…
Tara Flynn had her audience in stitches...well worth seeing"
 - ThreeWeeks

Tara Flynn makes a
Big Noise
in Rome with her varied characters, parodies, chats
alongside her very own original comedy songs
all with a twisted spin. 

"...jarringly surreal and inventively silly.
It'the Boosh-like oddity that clinches it." 
Andrew Collins

"Funny songs but the sub-text and performance style reveal a vulnerability and open-approach to life that elevates (her) work and makes (it) as valid as so-called regular songs.
Smart, funny and a real treat!"
 - Lach

"Well written and funny¦ ...very entertaining" -Australian Comedy Review

"Impossible to dislike" -Glasgow Herald

"...refreshingly testosterone-free comedy zone that still has balls..." 
-The Stage

"You could listen to the lovely Ms Flynn all night" -Chortle
