Delphi Goes Bassooning

When Janet began working on her first solo show four years ago, little did she know where it was going to take her. From sold out shows at Brunswick Picture House and the Drill Hall Mullumbimby in 2021, the show has continued to change and grow. ‘Working with dramaturge, Chrissy Olsen, and local choreographer, Delia Silvan, has been a demanding and rewarding process. We received a small grant from Create NSW that enabled us to rehearse together in an attempt to find the true heart of this story,’ says Janet Swain.

Janet then organised a ‘Garage Tour’ of the show – which allowed the show to develop in front of boutique audiences in garages, living rooms, on verandahs, and even in a boat shed on an island. The show toured to a theatre in Gosford, and then Janet went on to perform 12 shows at the Adelaide Fringe Festival. She has returned to the Northern Rivers on the crest of great reviews and responses – like these…

Highly recommended! Warm, funny, utterly charming.’ – Libby O’Donovan AOM 

This is Janet Swain’s first solo show… and what a triumph it is. This is what a Fringe show should be, through and through.’ – Arna Eyers.

Janet is excited to bring her 50 minute tiny musical back to the Byron Theatre on Saturday 18 March at 6pm. Tickets are on sale now at: www.byroncentre.com.au/theatre-events/delphi-goes-bassooning
