The Kransky Sisters are a trio of offbeat Brisbane based performers and musicians performing a 2 hour variety theatrical cabaret show. Their creators, Annie Lee, Christine Johnston and Michele Watt have joined together to create an absurd and endearing music ensemble comprising of three sisters who live in Esk, rural Queensland. These intense characters have been built around the notions of spinsterhood and obsessive family dynamics. The sisters offer their own illuminations on what they hear on the wireless and see in the magazines and together with their quite strange behaviour, this makes for a highly entertaining brew.
The Kransky Sisters have returned from the 2004 Melbourne International Comedy festival having won two major awards: The AGE CRITICS' AWARD and tied for MELBOURNE AIRPORT BEST NEWCOMERS' AWARD
"Their views on femininity, pop culture and nuances of gravy are extraordinary and bust-a-gut, shed-a-tear, splutteringly funny. This twisted representation.....is up there with Dame Edna - they are that good. Don't even think about missing this show."
HELEN RAZER, Arts Reviewer, THE AGE, MELBOURNE
..."...simply fantastic. Brooding, gothic and unhealthily co-dependent, the Kranskeys are deservedly an institution".
JOHN MANGAN, THE AGE, MELBOURNE
..."...as creepy as it is hilarious...and best of all original. Could have watched them all night".
