This year’s National Arts Festival Fringe sees the return of one of MacBob Productions’ most successful shows – Marriage for Dummies! Written, directed and starring Lisa Bobbert and Aaron McIlroy, the inimitable husband-and-wife duo of South African show biz, the production made its triumphant debut on last year’s NAF Fringe, before going on to take theatre-goers around the country by storm.
Marriage for Dummies is a survival guide for anyone brave enough to take on life’s ultimate challenge. Everyone knows that marriage is more than a relationship: it’s a wild adventure. Navigating the ups and downs of married life takes elbow grease, planning and anti-depressants! Before you throw in the towel get ‘expert’ advice from these comedic legends – as they share their secrets of ‘marital bliss’ and help you come to gripes... er, grips with your partner’s annoying habits.
Cue Online’s reviewer, appraising the show during its debut run, wrote: “This dynamic duo never disappoints. If you are in need of a good laugh and a relaxed evening out, this is the show to watch. A quirky mixture of comedy, dance, and music with interesting insight in how to make a marriage last. It will keep you well entertained.”
