“Exhilarating … you float out laughing as if you’ve just swallowed sunshine on a spoon.”
The Guardian
Helena is a divorce lawyer who can’t keep her hands off other women’s husbands. Bob is a small time crook who is getting far too old to be on the wrong side of the law. They meet in a bar on a Friday night. They have nothing in common and should never sleep with each other. But they do.

Their one night stand turns into a crazy and wonderful weekend full of ruined weddings, bags of money, car chases, Japanese rope bondage, sex and stubborn hangovers.

Punctuated by devious and wistful songs on guitar and ukulele, Midsummer [a play with songs] suggests that anyone can reinvent themselves and take their life in a new direction if they only chose to do so.

“Pretty much a perfect evening in the theatre.” Greenroom

“Mostly it’s just bloody funny.” Brisbane Times

“Deliriously funny and a pure delight – what better way to sail into the merry season? Anyone who has ever had a bad date or a light-hearted dance through a madcap evening, in fact, anyone who likes a laugh and a song will love this. Enjoy.” Kate Cherry
