The Vegemite Tales
Written by Australian playwright Melanie Tait, The Vegemite Tales is a comedy theatrical production. Around the lives of a group of young antipodeans sharing a flat in London is what the play is all about. Having been described as an Australian stage version of Friends, The Vegemite Tales was first staged at The Curtain's Up, a small fringe theatre in west London in 2001.
Being an overnight sell-out, it found enormous popularity with London's Australian, New Zealand and South African communities. Since then, The Vegemite Tales has been produced in London every year. At the Riverside Studios, a London arts venue well known for its international theatre programme, the show reached new heights with a 12-week sell-out season in 2006.
The fact that the play contains characters and scenarios that are very easy for an audience to recognize and relate to is the main secret behind the play's popularity. Contemporary themes include living in a shared house, living in a city far away from home, dealing with different cultures and making the difficult decision to stop putting real life on hold and move back home.
A succession of sell-out seasons on the London fringe and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival followed, with the production growing considerably in size, status and breadth of appeal. The 2004 season completely sold out before opening night, ticket touts appeared outside the theatre, and tickets were traded on eBay. In 2006 the show had its West End debut, with the Itchy Feet Theatre
The play is also given credit for introducing a new audience to live theatre, along with its popularity with regular theatergoers. Over 40% of the play's audience have never been, or rarely go, to the theatre. Since it was first staged, over 45,000 people have been to the theatres to see The Vegemite Tales.
