I Want To Know What Love Is

A Queensland Theatre Company and The Good Room production

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

Joyous. Sexy. Heartbreaking. Take a dizzying ride through love’s collision course.

The sold-out surprise hit of Brisbane Festival 2014 pash-smashes its way into Wonderland ready to raise your pulse and pluck your heartstrings one more time.

Based on 800 anonymous love stories submitted by you, your friends and your exes, I Want To Know What Love Is throws a spotlight on long-buried memories, bedroom fantasies, crushes and conquests as secret confessions are transformed into magnificent declarations centre stage. This is for everyone who’s ever loved. Anyone who’s ever hurt. This is for you.

The 7.45pm performance on Thursday 17 December is an Auslan interpreted performance featuring interpreters Leanne Beer and Bec Jones.


You'll be moved, and they won't be rom-com tears.

Brisbane Times

Elegant, sophisticated, heartfelt, inspiring and uplifting. You don’t want to miss this.
