Tues – Sat: 7:30pm
A Russian and an Australian walk into a bar. Neither are who they say they are.
The Victorian premiere of this smash-hit queer thriller, presented by and starring Wil King (ABC/Netflix’s Why Are You Like This, Strangers in Between) and their real-life partner, award-winner Patrick Livesey (The Boy, George, Gone Girls), DIRT traverses the compelling course of one night where two people meet, drink, and party in modern-day Moscow. Both need something from the other, both have something to hide.
Written by Angus Cameron and directed by Bronwen Coleman (The Actors Studio, NYC), DIRT is a thrilling and seductive exploration of sexuality, solidarity and persecution that won four awards at the 2021 Adelaide Fringe Festival and earned a dozen five-star reviews.
Running as a part of the 2021 Melbourne Fringe Festival and amplified through their Cash for Creative Program, this thrilling hot ticket season is a highlight on the arts calendar – not to be missed.
$1 from every ticket sold for this season of DIRT will also be donated the Russian LGBT Network and the Moscow Community Center for LGBT+ Initiatives; organisations promoting equal rights and respect for human dignity throughout Russia.
This season is proudly supported by the City of Stonnington.
