Having won awards in Edinburgh and Australia… Mourne, Eve and Dawn Kransky, three endearing spinsters from Esk in Queensland, are packing up their old Morris to hit the road again with a brand new show.
Venturing out from the intensely private world of their family home, the Sisters will bring stories and homespun renditions of the popular songs they’ve heard on their wireless.
With tuba, musical-saw, guitar, keyboard, saucepan and toilet brush… don’t miss this multi- award winning trio as they bring you their oddball and darkly funny brand of tune, from Cher and Abba to AC/DC.
“A truly bizarre, and utterly funny show. The fantastic characters are not unlike a cross between the Sugababes and the Adams Family.” Edinburgh Fringe Reviews
“The success of the show lies in the precision of the music, and a narrative that lures the audience, rocking with laughter into a totally unsavoury, insular world“. The Independent, Scotland
“If Dame Edna ever retired to the Outback and procreated, the result might be something like the Kranskys. “Kate Copstick, The Scotsman
“Like the acid fuelled imagining of Hunter S Thompson at a Country Women’s Association meeting, this unstuck comic creation is bizarre and precious….These women are the comedic equivalent of Star Trek. So complete and meticulous is their creation, you can almost imagine a future of Kransky conventions. ” Helen Razer The Age 2005
“Returning once again from their remote Queensland home, the Sisters are a frighteningly innovative trio. Armed with a tuba, ancient pink keyboard, folksy guitar and saw-violin, their renditions of tunes ranging from Pink Floyd to Jewel are effortlessly funny on their own. The Kranskys are comic creations of a disturbingly believable kind. Darkly hilarious and discomfortingly clever. “John Bailey, Beat Magazine 2005
