Alice Dorothy and Wendy confront five challenges of growth: awakening, disillusionment, discontentment, defeat and insight, each of which they manoeuvre defiantly.

How deep is your love?

Try this: a man falls in love … in Bangladesh. With a bank. Writer and lawyer Mark Swivel saw a gap in the saturated comedy marketplace for a show on poverty, banking and the Bee Gees. And here’s the result. (Phillip Adams liked it and gave Mark a koala stamp: Late Night Live, Radio National, Mon 22 Feb). Others say Mark went to learn microfinance with Nobel Prize winning Grameen Bank. He wanted to ‘make a difference’, and what can you do, rejoin the Labor Party?!? So. Mark discovers shampoo is black, cauliflower is much-loved and the Bee Gees are still cool. Well, a man sings him How Deep Is Your Love in the street. Mark falls for Habibunessa, Shagorica and Malika – women who borrow from Grameen to start businesses and work their way out of poverty. An unlikely love story?! You bet! With slides. Mark asks: what can we learn from ‘the poor’? Can you recite your mortgage? And where’s the best coffee in Dhaka? What is it? … Theatre? It’s theatrical. Comedy? Yep. Well, it’s funny. He’s funny — it’s probably the most informative, edifying and entertaining slide night you’re ever likely to attend. Syke on Stage Gripping and unique, The Beat ***.
