Silly Little Things
Laura Knaggs/Silver String Productions
Theater, Comedy & Improv, Storytelling
Impeccably written theatre with a biting comedic edge; Silly Little Things is an intimate hour of storytelling from your most charming, albeit dysfunctional friend. Join Rosie on her whirlwind adventure as she navigates donuts, mullet boys, crabby neighbours and Tom Cruise and seeks solace in unexpected places.
With her world on the brink of collapse and her best friend nowhere in sight, Rosie searches for someone to fill the void and stop her from unravelling altogether. Exploring failure, anxiety, and the grief that grows within a distancing friendship, Silly Little Things tells the story of one young woman’s journey to discovering what truly matters.
Directed by Sharnema Nougar, this vibrant and heart-warming one-woman show is written and performed by emerging playwright Laura Knaggs.
If you’ve splurged all your cash on tequila, turned to Hinge for a hug, or struggled to mend a crumbling friendship, this show will touch your heart, make you laugh, and remind you of the beauty in life’s ups and downs.
*Content warning: This production contains occasional coarse language and mentions of sexual acts and panic attacks.
