Melbourne Fringe: Christopher Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

Have you ever thought about the places that have formed the person you are right now? Sure, your family and friends shape you, but what about the places you’ve worked at or the houses you’ve lived in? Have you ever fake-owned horses or been hit in the face by a boat, twice? Or had game in Rockhampton? Christopher Welldon has.

Welldon’s autobiographical stage show, based on his blog – Christopher Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, is about the 60 places he’s lived in his 34 years. It’s a brave performer who will lay their life bare, begging for you to laugh at the funny and the awful, all captured in a quick turn of phrase. Director Daniel Lammin keeps Welldon honest and the story builds beautifully from town to town, state to state, and decade to decade.

An hilarious show about moving and a moving show that’s hilarious.
