It's Mr Bean meets The Shining! Don't be fooled - Jim and Barb are no ordinary elderly couple. Leave your preconceptions at the door and expect the unexpected. The Anniversary is a physical comedy house party from hell! From the creators of the multi award-winning Otto and Astrid - Die Roten Punkte comes a brand-new murderously funny comedy farce. Hold onto your hats for the most absurd and hilarious tailspin of a party like you've never seen before. 'They're hilarious!' ***** (CBC.ca). 'Wild... high energy!' **** (Herald Sun). 'It's a class act... intensely funny!' **** (Age).
