The Blind Date Project
Silo’s 2014 sell-out hit returns for a new year and a new you. Five years on, serial dater Anna’s back on the market and looking for love in all the wrong places. Each night, she meets a new blind date, each one played by a different performer, each one a surprise to Anna.
Unscripted and unrehearsed, relying solely on impulse, a shot of tequila and their phones, Anna and her date are directed via live texts and calls as they put their hearts on the line and their nerves to the ultimate test.
Natalie Medlock reprises her star turn as Anna in this fully improvised theatrical experiment about love, fear and some really questionable karaoke. Created by Sydney’s Ride On Theatre and performed around the world with guest actors such as Margot Robbie, Laverne Cox and Jason Alexander, The Blind Date Project is awkward, unpredictable and wildly entertaining.
The Mystery Blind Dates taking a chance with Anna (Natalie Medlock) for this season feature New Zealand's finest and most celebrated acting and comedic talents, including: Pax Assadi, Tom Clarke, Danielle Cormack, Dave Fane, Kura Forrester, Virginia Frankovich, Arlo Green, Ahi Karunaharan, Nisha Madhan, James Maeva, Robbie Magasiva, Eli Matthewson, Karin McCracken, Ryan O'Kane, Hamish Parkinson, Chelsie Preston Crayford, Jodie Rimmer, Adam Rohe, James Roque, Tom Sainsbury, Hayley Sproull, Brynley Stent, Liv Tennet, Jennifer Ward-Lealand with more to be announced!
Presented by special arrangement with Ride On Theatre.
