Theatre Works and
Kissing Booth PRESENT

5 Stars

by Kissing Booth

25 - 29 January 2022

VENUE

Theatre Works

A lovesick playwright and the beautiful actor who rejected him attempt to make art from the dismay. An officially fascinating trans artist makes his theatrical debut. The most handsome guy in your year twelve drama class just got cast in something absurd. Applause attempts to prove its value.

This play is a love letter to theatre that your psychologist would advise you to write but not to send. Set against the backdrop of Melbourne’s theatre scene, this is the world premiere of an excellent play about how important it is to be beautiful and interesting and sexy and talented and nice.

Theatre might be the worst thing you’ve ever done to yourself.
