Sophie Addison back stage at Rhino Room

Announcing Adelaide Fringe 2023

After two outstanding years in Drama Llama, Lost in Translation is moving into the Upstairs at Rhino Room for Adelaide Fringe 2023

Lost in Translation takes the most famous, most quotable film scripts, runs them back and forth between different languages, then back into English using an online translator and reads the resulting script live on stage in character with guest actors. The final twist is that the guest stars read the scripts on stage for the first time.

Lost in Translation features all your favourite characters saying completely outrageous and very occasionally nonsensical things. But the show is not complete gibberish. The plot always charges on and the films you know and love are buried deep within. Each sentence said on stage makes sense, but as the title suggests, they’re just lost in translation.

The show features its creators: Aaron Finan, Sophie Addison, Emma Evans and Lochryn Hearne, along with a variety of new and returning guest stars. This year the Lost in Translation crew have three new films in their rotation, including the sequels to some fan favourites: Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Jurassic Park. These new films join an already packed roster featuring: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Titanic and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

“This year is our go big or go home moment. Making the move into the largest venue at Rhino Room is both terrifying and exciting. After such a positive audience response in 2022, we set our sights higher than ever. Three new scripts, three times as many seats and a whole bunch of amazing guest stars.” – Aaron Finan.

Lost In Translation hits the stage again at 6:00pm from opening night of Adelaide Fringe on Friday 17th of February to Saturday 4th of March in the Upstairs at Rhino Room.

Lost in Translation is presented by Braw Media.
