Show Me Yours. I’ll Show You Mine. by Tim Spencer
“A conversation between Tim Spencer and a male sex worker about their work, the world and life in Sydney.”

I’ve been Everywhere Man (or, “The Time I tried to validate my own existence through travel and it didn’t quite work out the way I wanted it to”)
by Zoe Combes Marr
“I spent all my savings on a hot-as-shit 1986 diesel Pajero (which literaaly means Wanker in Spanish) and went out on the open road. About 2 hours down the open road, the Pajero exploded.”

The Great Apeth by Phil Spencer
“Phil has a very special friendship with his eighty-two year old Nana, Gaye. This show is about Gaye…ohh and Mexican Wrestling, appendicitis, Victoria sponge cakes and family grief.”

(DATES: Nov 26th, Dec 1st, 3rd, 7th, 9th, 15th, & 17th)

Homeby Jono Burns
“I know you need unique New York, but does unique New York need you? When Jono’s family home is sold, he journeys to the city of his dreams to study acting.”

This Is Not a Possum by Zoe Norton Lodge
“Zoe doesn’t know much about nature because at her place, the outdoors were forbidden. However household neglect and her own Matlida-esque curiosity and natural intelligence have led her to formulate a veritable dosia on possums. Sh’d like you to meet her family.”

(DATES: Dec 29th, Dec 6th & 13th)
A giant handful of brand new little works from Nick Coyle, Scarlet McGlynn, Betty Grumble, Lucinda Gleeson & Alex Vaughan.
