New character-based solo show from award-winning UK comedy writer-performer to have WORLD PREMIERE at Adelaide Fringe 2014

Lizzy MaceOverlooked: A Roll-Call of the Small is the completely new character-based solo show from three-time Edinburgh Fringe performer and award-winner Lizzy Mace, currently in development following six weeks’ immersive study of improvisation and sketch comedy writing at the legendary Second City Training Center in Chicago.

As a comedy performer, Lizzy has been described as “hilarious” (UKtheatre.net), “charming” (The Latest) and “geeky” (Chortle).

Do the rom coms hold the key to finding true love? Or are they all just one big con?
