Aaron-Lee Eyles on bringing Mi$fortune to Golden Goose Theatre
Our latest guest is Aaron-Lee Eyles. Aaron-Lee is no stranger to Everything Theatre, having reviewed for us in the past inbetween working on his own shows. And his latest show is Mi$fortune, which tells the tragic story of Billie-Bob Harrell Jr, an American lottery winner, who quickly found that winning big isn’t always that good. The show started life a couple of years ago under a different title, and we actually spoke to Aaron-Lee about it then. So this time around we recap the show but also discuss what has happened in the two years since. It’s a great insight into the lifecycle of a play.
Mi$fortune comes to Golden Goose Theatre from 18 – 22 April, further information can be found here.
Golden Goose Theatre
18 – 22 April
Texas, Summer 1997. Home Depot worker and devout Christian Billie-Bob Harrell Jr. wins big on the lottery, $31 Million big. The months that followed surely changed his life, but not in the way you might imagine. What many would expect to be a life-changing miracle for a humble family man unravelled into a fatal battle of faith vs pride. From Unmarked Theatre, whose previous work has been described as ‘experimenting with form and structure in ways traditional theatre probably never will’ (Everything Theatre, 2022) comes MI$FORTUNE – a bold exploration of one man’s tragedy told through physical theatre, improvisation & song.Further information and bookings here.
