A funny and moving Australian classic from the award-winning playwright of Holding the Man.
Shane has fled his family and is seeking refuge in Kings Cross. Confused and naive, he meets two strangers: the ultra-urban Will, who offers brotherhood, sex and something unexpected; and Peter, a fifty-year-old gay man whose mother is dying in a nursing home. With their help (or hindrance), Shane struggles to reconcile himself with events from his past. But how can he move on when he can’t even use laundry powder?
Directed by Green Room nominee Daniel Lammin (Master Class and Awakening), this timely new production features a stellar cast – AACTA and Logie winner Simon Burke (Malthouse Theatre’s The Homosexuals and Foxtel’s Devils Playground), recent Helpmann Award winner Guy Simon (MTC’s Jasper Jones), and Wil King (The Production Company’s La Cage Aux Folles).
