One man’s hopes and dreams, channeled through an iron. This comedy weaves together satire, song, and copious amounts of brightly coloured linen.
Rising star of the Christchurch theatre scene Mark Darbyshire returns to the Bay Landscapes Nelson Fringe with his first solo show, after appearing in the sold-out improvised show Strangers (Impulse Theatre) last Festival.
Blasting through the steamy void between musical theatre and stand-up comedy, Ironing Man is sidesplitting, heartwarming, and unashamedly queer.
If you've never paid to watch someone iron, now is your chance. Come prepared to laugh, cry, and share in the universal wonder of ironing.
