Description

Completely sold out in 2014 and 2018. From the wicked pen of Steven Dawson and Out Cast Theatre, Australia's premiere LGBTI theatre company, comes the campest, tackiest show you’ll see this year. Previous Fringe sell-out seasons include Distinguished Gentlemen, Bitch Antigone, Monstrous Acts, Jane Austen’s Guide to Pornography, and Adventures of Butt Boy and Tigger. Three screamingly hammy actors stylishly defile Mr Wilde’s classic. Fast, furious, filthy and very funny. Oscar will be spinning in his grave.

This show was sheer genious!
Wasn't sure what to expect, but we were captivated and laughed out loud from start to finish! It was fast paced and we wished we could have seen it again, sure to have missed some gags due to laughing so much... it's probably not what you'd expect, but such a brilliant show, thoroughly recommend to see !! We will be watching out for this theatre group, convinced anything they do will be hilarious

Absolutely fantastic! The whole performance was very witty and fast paced, and the writing and delivery was very smart. I really can't wait to see these three next time I am at the fringe!

The actors were enjoying themselves more that the audience it seems, which is never a good sign. A flow of 'spicy' jokes was occasionally diluted by something more subtle, but the pace was so fast as if they indeed had the intention to play 'The importance' in 1 hour. Bottom line: if you like this sort of humour you may be in for a good laugh.
