Matthew Hardy: Willy Wonka Explained - The Veruca Salt Sessions

Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2010

Starring: Matthew Hardy

A truly unique double act between an acclaimed Australian stand-up and the star of one of the world’s best-loved cult movies.



This is the curiously true story of what happened when Matthew Hardy- dumped, broken and drinking wine straight out of the bottle in his underpants- decided to make contact with his first ever crush. Matthew was five and in a small cinema in suburban Australia when he first clapped eyes on spoilt little brat Veruca Salt in the legendary 1970s film version of Charlie And The Chocolate Family.

After fanatically re-watching the film throughout his adult life, and spurred on by his flatmate who pointed out that she wouldn’t be ten years old any more, Matthew fast-forwarded the credits to her name- Julie Dawn Cole- and began some internet detective work. It started as a harmless bit of fun, and initially went nowhere... until Julie was eventually inquisitive enough to actually respond.
