Playing as a part of the 2021 Melbourne Fringe Festival, Isabella Perversi proudly presents the premiere season of

What rhymes with orange?
Written and performed by Isabella Perversi
Directed by Alanah Guiry

Hard questions, no answers.

A tender and funny two-hander following an ordinary couple simply trying to survive their relationship, What rhymes with orange? is the latest work by multi-disciplinary artist Isabella Perversi.

Things started out pretty regularly for Tom and Rosie, but they soon learnt the hardest lesson of all. Bickering over the little things, it's what's not being said that's really troubling them. What happens to a relationship when it is held together not only by love, but also by secrets, shame, and guilt?

Nominated for a Green Room Award for Performance (2021) and Best in Theatre at the 2020 Melbourne Fringe Festival for her debut play EMBER, Isabella Perversi now brings Melbourne audiences What rhymes with orange? - her intimate new work about modern love and sacrifice, set amongst the seeming randomness of life.
