One man’s hopes and dreams, channeled through an iron. This comedy weaves together satire, song, and copious amounts of brightly coloured linen.

Blasting through the steamy void between musical theatre and stand-up comedy, Ironing Man is sidesplitting, heartwarming, and unashamedly queer.
If you’ve never paid to watch someone iron, now is your chance. Come prepared to laugh, cry, and share in the universal wonder of ironing.
Mark Darbyshire is among Christchurch’s most brightly dressed and well-pressed comedians. He weaves together music, theatre, and anecdotes into a well-ironed comedic tapestry. His previous Little Andromeda appearances include Canvas Sketches, Death and Biscuits, and Off Book: The Musical.
We’re right in the middle of the Terrace… Find Oxford lane (between Terrace Tavern and Amazonita), then go up the stairs behind Little Fiddle, or go up the elevator between Bangalore Polo Club and Amazonita. You can also access it from Shands Lane. Once you’re up the stairs, look for the Little Andromeda sandwich board, or our windows which have Little Andromeda written all over them!
It’s about a block from the bus exchange, and if you are bringing your car then there is a brand new carpark next door; type 92 Hereford Street into your GPS!
