Sex With Strangers (September 22nd)

sex with strangers

Premiering on the 22nd of September at the Devonport Entertainment and Convention Centre is the show Sex with Strangers, starring Tottie Goldsmith (Grease, Rocky Horror Show) and Samuel Johnson (The Secret Life of Us). Sex with Strangers, a mature themed show, focuses upon two writers: one a published author trying to better her writing through a new novel and the other, a blog writer looking to legitimize his writing. When the pair meets in the midst of a snowstorm their chemistry sparks and leads the audience on a dark rollercoaster ride.

First staged in Chicago at the Steppenwolf Theatre in 2011, Sex with Strangers has received positive reviews for its writing and atmosphere. It offers unique observations about first impressions and relationships in the modern age while addressing gender and generational differences. Mostly, it addresses the realistic and unrealistic issues of intimacy through the eyes of two powerful and complex characters.

Flak (October 7th)

Flak is a very special performance created by Michael Veitch. It is a collection of very personal and very revealing stories from 2nd World War veteran pilots whom Michael interviewed. Described as a passion project this performance is set to be unforgettable.

More than fifty RAAF airmen including fighter aces, bombers, navigators and many more were interviewed from across Australia. The result is a varied collection of enlightening, enthralling, and often unheard stories.

The event is to be held at the Devonport Entertainment and Convention Centre on Wednesday the 7th of October at 7:00 pm. For ticketing details or more information visit:
