The Kransky Sisters want to make one thing perfectly clear about their new show, We Don’t Have Husbands.
They are happily single and are not coming to Sydney to find men.
They are content living in the country town of Esk in south-east Queensland, and the best thing of all is they have each other.
The Kransky Sisters won a cult following for their bizarre appearances on the SBS chat show, In Siberia Tonight.
After being a hit at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the trio are now taking their show to The Studio at the Sydney Opera House from 27 April.
We Don’t Have Husbands has been created by Brisbane performers Christine Johnston, Annie Lee and Michele Watt, and is built around the notion of spinsterhood, small-town isolation and obsessive families.
Eldest sister Mourne leads the way, middle sister Eve follows suit and youngest Arva doesn’t speak.
According to Christine Johnston (Eve) they have decided it’s time to invite the rest of the world to share some nice moments with them, hence their visit to Sydney.
The title of the show is the girls’ way of saying they are doing just fine by themselves, says Johnston, before slipping into her alter ego role as Eve.
We really don’t need husbands as we have a nice life at home, says Eve.
We are coming to Sydney to do our shows as we want to meet some nice people. We just want to have cups of teas and scones and a nice chat.
In the show, the Kransky girls present a repertoire of their favourite hits in their own weird style, including Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing, Pink’s Get The Party Started and Dee-Lite’s Groove Is In The Heart.
The sisters back up their vocal efforts with such musical instruments as a tuba, musical saw and tambourines.
Their appearances on In Siberia Tonight attracted such attention that a number of offers for new projects have come their way.
Um, yes. We are writing things for it as we speak, but we really can’t say, Christine says a little reluctantly.
Keep your eyes out as you just never know where we might pop up.
The Kransky Sisters: We Don’t Have Husbands is on at The Studio at the Sydney Opera House from 27 April to 1 May. Tickets cost $26 and $21. Phone 9250 7777.
