A Not So Trivial Pursuit
The latest offering from Adelaide's master of the bittersweet comedy Hew Parham, Pursuit is his most wild and personal show yet.
Hew has a lot of questions and not a lot of answers. Trapped in a real-life game of Trivial Pursuit, ruled over by a psychotic rules Nazi, Hew must make his way through this game of life to find his missing pieces. Haunted by History, losing himself in Geography, Hew is aided by a Sporting legend and finds solace in Arts and Literature. Through his travels Hew ultimately lands in Central California where he finds his centre again in one of the most unlikely places. A madcap journey that is both profound and pure Entertainment.
