After Dinner by Andrew Bovell

From an Australian Master Playwright's early work - a truly hilarious play!

Monika: Can you imagine what's underneath those tight, black pants?

Paula: It's only a  bit of fun.

Five consenting adults are getting out of the house for a night, what happens after dinner is anyone's bet. Written and set in the late 1980s, this play remains hilariously relatable to e everyone. A social jungle that shapes a culture and the conversations we still  have daily.

Andrew Bovell is a multi-award winning and much lauded playwright. His previous work includes Speaking in Tongues, Lantana, Who's Afraid of the Working Class?, When the Rain Stops Falling The Secret River and Things I Know to be True. He is currently the STC Patrick White Fellow and his recent Currency Paper Putting Words in Their Mouths, has just been released. After Dinner is a fun night out and explores being a suburban single in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

Team - Director/Designer - Michael J. Cornford

Cast - PAULA (Joanna Lusty), GORDON (Josh Osborne), STEPHEN (Will Smidt), MONIKA (Jobi Strike), DYMPIE (Emily Waldron).
