19 - 22 AUGUST
SOY, SEX & SARCASM
After lockdown, Charlie decides to give up pornography and hit the gay dating scene. Sex proves to be a disastrous distraction from self-loathing, and he soon realises that being emotionally unhinged, cynical and bored makes him a difficult romantic candidate. Also, his pet goldfish Bob is horribly depressed.
PROTEIN is a sassy laugh-out-loud one-handed show that follows soy-boy Charlie over the course of a few unfortunate days. This 60-minute new Australian work promises an energetic and hilarious performance by emerging playwright A. J. Ridefelt, depicting the search for morality and love in modern adulthood.
A. J. Ridefelt is a Melbourne-based writer known for his witty and thought-provoking work. Writing credits include Post A New Musical (Something Blue Productions 2019), Songs of the Northern River (The MC Showroom Hatchery Sponsorship 2019) and Tied Up With Strings (Hope. New Works Development Initiative 2020).
Protein premieres on the 29th of April for a strictly limited four-night season.
Please be advised this show contains mature themes, course language and sexual references. Parental discretion recommended for people under the age of 18.
