MELBOURNE FRINGE FESTIVAL
Oh No! Satan Stole My Pineal Gland! ★★★
Kirby Medway, Trades Hall, until September 29
Bizarre doesn’t even begin to cover the infernal hilarity that Kirby Medway serves up in this one, but with a title like Oh No! Satan Stole My Pineal Gland!, the road to hell comes heavily signposted.
This reminded me of a sketch called “Brides of Satan” from Fast Forward in the early ’90s, featuring Magda Szubanski and Jane Turner as mild-mannered suburban satanists. (Worth catching the out-takes of that on YouTube – it’s a scream.)
