Maybe we should say it’s a tale, or tail rather, because that’s really where this all began. Alyssan Russell’s new one-woman show SHITSTORM is a series of stories, songs and stupid comments about living with less than ideal circumstances.
Making both her world and Sydney Fringe Festival debut with SHITSTORM (finally!) Alyssan will regale not only stories of overcoming illness, the horrors and humour of piecing together ones own body, but the simply ridiculous tales of what it is to live this crazy life – to endure the SHITSTORM.
“Alyssan Russell is outstanding” Carnell; Stage Whispers
“[Alyssan Russell] managed to assimilate a large collection of tales about the trivialities of daily life into a well-executed, cohesive, singular kooky story.” Lahey; Australian Stage
“I’ve only seen one other in my life” Dr S, RPA Hospital
“There are only around 100 documented cases worldwide ever” random online medical journal.
Alyssan Russell is an up and coming actress, musician, writer and comedian. Known to some for her appearances on ABC’s Crownies and Rake, others for her comedic storytelling prowess and loungeroom hit songs, more recently, she has been known for her knack of finding herself the sufferer of the rarer style of ailment.
Diagnosed in late 2014 with a carcinoid saccrococcygeal terratoma – a massive tumour on her coccyx, Alyssan was in the middle of writing a one woman show about the humourous absurdities of life. Life imitated art.
Medically, Catastrophically, Laughably.
