Sell-Out Show From Melbourne Fringe Comes to Adelaide

Three Birds One Cock asks the question, why do Alfred Hitchcock's leading ladies always meet such gruesome ends? And what if they all got together, to seek revenge against the iconic director?

Written, directed and performed by Candace Miles, Madelaine Nunn and Anna Rodway, Three Birds One Cock runs for just two more nights at the Star Theatre Two. We spoke to Candace to find out just why you should check out this ingeniously-conceived piece of theatre.

The three performers on stage, dressed as Hitchcock characters and holding pistols at each other.

Tell us a little about your show.

Candace Miles: Three blondes. One body bag. A music score in the style of Bernard Herrmann. Sublime costumes and shadowy lights. As many cock puns as can fit in a 50 minute show. Noir! Glamour! Murder! Suspense! Oh, and Alfred Hitchcock.

What is the biggest accolade you’ve received for your work?

CM: Praised as one of the top picks at the Melbourne Fringe Festival 2015 Awards!

What’s your next step, after Fringe?

CM: Continuing to write, direct and perform in our own work. Celebrating the skills of a female-driven theatre ensemble and collaborating with a range of artists.

What’s your guilty internet indulgence?

CM: Golden retrievers air-drumming…

What, in your opinion, is sexy?

CM: Someone who will drive to 145 Sir Donald Bradman Drive to see an erotic and manic show called THREE BIRDS ONE COCK…there’s fake blood made out of sugar.
