Review Tuesday: 'The Adventures of Indi'
Today’s ‘Review Tuesday’. Today I’m writing about the longest play I’ve ever known. It’s called The Adventures of Indi. Production began 10¾ years ago, and its first public performance was 10 years ago yesterday. Can you believe that? The star, of course, is the spectacular Indigo (pictured) . Lots of characters have smaller parts – including her parents, sisters, grandparents, aunts, cousins, schoolmates and friends. The cast also includes animals (mainly dogs, but two goats years ago) and birds (especially chooks; lots of chooks). But it’s Indi herself who steals the show. Definitely. She’s bright, sensitive, cool, creative, artistic, loving and loyal. And of course beautiful. She’s also funny. So funny that audience members sometimes pop their buttons from laughing. It's impossible not to love her. Her adventures include bike riding, skate boarding, roller skating, swimming, guitar playing, singing, and watching films and DVDs. Her life’s so busy that the play’s stage crew get exhausted from all the changes of sets and scenery. Oh there’s no shortage of action and activity in Indi’s life. That’s for sure. The plot’s full of twists and turns. It keeps the audience guessing what’ll happen next. And they usually guess wrongly. In summary, I highly recommend The Adventures of Indi. I rate it ten stars (out of a possible five). And the good news is: there’s a sequel. Production has already begun on More adventures of Indi. I can hardly wait to see what Indi does next.
