Silo’s 2014 sell-out hit returns for a new year and a new you. Five years on, serial dater Anna’s back on the market and looking for love in all the wrong places. Each night, she meets a new blind date, each one played by a different performer, each one a surprise to Anna.
Unscripted and unrehearsed, relying solely on impulse, a shot of tequila and their phones, Anna and her date are directed via live texts and calls as they put their hearts on the line and their nerves to the ultimate test.
Silo Theatre’s award-winning Artistic Director Sophie Roberts is in the matchmaking Hot Seat, directing the performances live each night to create rom-com mayhem with a fresh line-up of outstanding local talent. Relying on their performative and natural instincts, a surprise rotating cast of mystery dates have accepted this mammoth unscripted theatrical challenge. The line-up of guest dates includes Pax Assadi, Dave Fane, Kura Forrester, Robbie Magasiva, Eli Matthewson, Tom Sainsbury, Alice Snedden, Hayley Sproull, Brynley Stent and Jennifer Ward-Lealand with many, many more to be announced.
The Blind Date Project is awkward, unpredictable and wildly entertaining.
