About this event

Another crap gig for '80s one-number-two-hit wonder Cyn and her band, in a town so far off their radar they can't even remember its name. But could a chance meeting turn Cyn's 35 years of bad luck around? Part Spinal Tap and part anti-heroine's journey, 'The Runner Up' is a substance-soaked rock'n'roll comedy about a fabulous loser and her band's long way to the top.

With hits from legendary '80s and '90s rock chicks performed live by some of Adelaide's hottest musicians, extreme costumes and a magnificent punch line, this theatre-cabaret, rock hybrid dares to dream even harder than any TV talent-show contestant could.

★★★★ "Raw energy that the Fringe was made for. Leave the kids at home and chuck on your leather jacket for a night to remember!" The Upside News.
