Dame Edna says “farewell possums” as Barry Humphries takes a final bow during his farewell tour, Eat Pray Laugh!.
Humphries, whose alter egos include inebriated cultural attaché, the Honorable Sir Les Patterson, and Moonee Ponds’ legendary housewife, Dame Edna Everage, will perform a limited number of farewell shows from June to August this year at theatres in Canberra, Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne and the Gold Coast.
While his famous creations are not officially retiring, Australia’s greatest Dame insists that this will be her final tour.
“So, Possums, please do come and say goodbye to me. It would be lovely to see your faces for the last time,” Dame Edna says.
“When you hear your grandchild's voice saying, ‘Grandma, did you see Dame Edna's farewell show?’ don't betray their faith in you. Say ‘yes darling! Many, many times!’”
During the all-singing, all-dancing spectacular, Dame Edna promises to “empower” audiences as she meditates on the big issues of gender, ethnicity and climate change.
“You will see me at the height of my powers, taking you on a wonderful spiritual journey you'll never forget. I'm not saying my show will heal you, but you'll certainly leave the theatre feeling considerably better for the experience.”
While Act One of Eat Pray Laugh! features Humphries with his friends, this really serves as “just a bit of foreplay really before I make an orgasmic appearance in Act Two”, Dame Edna says.
“Dame Edna insists that we do this final tour to farewell our many friends in Australia,” Humphries says. “She has toured the world since the mid 1950s and she is ready to kick off her heels and tend to her gladiolas.”
This brand new show is directed by prominent Australian theatre director Simon Phillips.
Don’t miss this final chance to say farewell to one of Australia’s sharpest wits and finest comic talents, on stage for a limited season during Eat, Pray, Laugh!
