PROMISCUOUS/
CITIES

by Lachlan Philpott

CANCELLED

They’ve written endless songs about this city.

Can you feel the street’s pulse, how it rushes through your veins like a drug?

He’s in trouble, she’s falling in love, they’re cheating, she’s trapped and he’s alone.

But keep moving since we mustn’t fall behind.

Stay connected- don’t want to miss out.

promiscuous/cities composes a symphony of a night in a big city where each of us is frantically maintaining the myth of ourselves we’ve created. Yet underneath the vision of us we peddle on social media – like! – there is an aching distance between us. Playwright Lachlan Philpott asks: How can we know a city when we don’t even know ourselves?

This Australian premiere is performed by a group of actors just graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts, who made the show – and did their entire training – for no live public audience. It’s hard to think of a group more attuned to the play’s concerns with the relationship between online and embodied life, connection and missed connections.

VENUE

Due to unforeseen circumstances, all performances of promiscuous/cities have been cancelled. Ticket holders will receive communications from Theatre Works' box office in due course.
