Sex With Strangers

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse, Thomas Larkin and Troy Armstrong Management

Don’t miss the return season of “one of the most thrilling events on Brisbane stages” (The Courier Mail) when Sex With Strangers hits the stage in 2015.

The show stars Brisbane’s own Thomas Larkin as Ethan, a sex blogger who falls in lust with Veronica Neave’s Olivia, a gifted and complicated novelist. When the pair meet at a writer’s retreat, romance and the digital age collide, as the pair confronts the dark side of ambition and the near-impossibility of reinventing oneself when the past is just a click away.

Preview a sneak peak of Sex With Strangers here, then come back each week as a new teaser is released.
