Willy Wonka Explained; The Veruca Salt Sessions

Matthew Hardy - Willy Wonka Explained; The Veruca Salt Sessions

Don’t miss this refreshing show, which was a smash-hit at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Matthew Hardy and Julie Dawn Cole, the original actress who played the little tyke Veruca Salt in the classic ’70s film, appear as if sat on their respective therapist’s couches. Dawn Cole, in London, complains about being a former child star, while Hardy, in Australia, bemoans his unshakable obsession with the film. Hardy’s Wonka love shines through and Cole’s presence is the icing on the cake.

Caution: May contain hilarious multi-media interludes. Ommpalicious!
