“I wrote a really terrible play in Year 12.”
Playwright Ang Collins has not revisited this play since its conception.
“I’m pretty sure it would burn my eyes, but you have to start somewhere!”
Today, Ang is an artist wearing many creative hats, along with an eye-catching combination of pastel pink and blue. Predominately a playwright, she is also a producer, dramaturg and currently working in arts administration at Griffin Theatre Company.
I never thought I’d find needlessly exaggerated accents funny, let alone hilarious. But somehow the Nordic theme of Roomba Nation really touched that part of my brain that compels me to laugh, and I spent a lot of this show laughing.
Roomba Nation is a hilarious romp through the exciting world of inadvertent medical corruption. It touches on concepts of egocentric medical practices and blurs the line between alternative and respected medicine.
