A new romantic-comedy by shake & stir theatre co

Gwen is in a rut. A love rut. On the surface she appears to have the goods, but deep down something is stopping her from nailing her Mr Right Now – and no amount of booze and sarcasm seems to be helping.

Keen to break the cycle once and for all, Gwen embarks on a series of four first dates with one explosive goal in mind. The question is – are any of these guys worthy of entering Gwen’s girly gates?

Lucky for Gwen, that’s where you (and your smart phones) come into play. This unique, choose-your-own-adventure, theatre-experience sees the audience voting in real-time for what Gwen does next - this happy ending is in your hands.

Fourthcoming is an adults-only, reality-theatre production starring Johnny Balbuziente (Married At First Sight) and Cece Peters (Playing for Keeps, True Story with Hamish & Andy, The Wrong Girl). Hilarious, sexy and surprisingly moving this is the ultimate raunchy rom-com that will quench your thirst – no matter how dry you’ve been.


Q: It says the show is "interactive" - will I be dragged up on stage?
A: No - we expect you to leave the performing to the professionals.

Q: Do I need to interact?
A: It's up to you - we welcome both voters and voyeurs.

Q: Will I want to come again?
A: Yes... Yes...Yesssssss! 😉
