Adelaide Fringe 2019:Ministers of Grace: The Unauthorised Shakespearean Parody of Ghostbusters


Let’s start with a five star show.

Eight talented (professional) actors from the UK take on whatever roles are called for in this action-packed eighty minutes of hilarious silliness. I had the disadvantage of not having seen the movie, but took the cue from a group up the front who were laughing hard every minute. You pick up the idea of the story early and if you are a Shakespeare fan it’s a delight whether or not you’ve watched the Bill Murray version.

I’m sure Shakespeare would have loved it too.

So on the night we went there weren’t enough people there. I don’t get this. It sold out Edinburgh, but apparently Adelaide wants circus, comedy that requires no thought and ‘cabaret’; not much else. Without a doubt this show was at the wrong venues, it should have been at the Bakehouse or at Holden St. But still.

Adelaide. Can’t we show the same taste as Edinburgh? So get ye to Angle Park and see what may be the best value show of the Fringe 2019.
