“If I didn’t have to worry about things going in and out of my holes, life would be much easier.” 

So bemoans Todd (James Sweeney), who in his over-thinking way, decides that even though circumstances may say otherwise (he loves Legally Blonde, cashmere sweaters, and he once sucked his friend’s…well, you get the gist ) he’s totally, definitely not gay. Much to the chagrin of his therapist, Todd has an epiphany – the answer to his loneliness is to be… straight! What could possibly go wrong?

Enter Rory (Katie Findlay), a wannabe actress who can return Todd’s banter better than anyone. Oh, and she also loves doco night. But is that enough to build a relationship? Especially when no one wants to talk about S-E-X? Could she be the Doris Day to his… um… Rock Hudson?

This super-witty and urbane comedy is very much of our times. Bitingly funny, and full of pop culture references, it’s all about setting up camp within your own boundaries.

Australian Premiere
