Brisbane (a doing word)
Written by Dave Burton
Directed by Claire Christian
Matty, like all good Queensland 20-something uni students, doesn’t know what the hell to do with his life. He does stand up comedy, but no one laughs. He does contemporary theatre, but no one can see the point. He does slam poetry, but it’s not slammin’.His psychologist-in-training boyfriend suggests therapy. His Christian girl-bestie suggests Jesus. His engineering roommate Lara suggests he get a real job and start paying his dues. Matty’s starting to get desperate enough to try all three!
For anyone who’s ever been confused about whether they love or hate their city, or themselves.

In The Media
"a hilarious, intimate and touching play about student life in this comfortable, little town."
"a show with plenty of truth, heart and humour...it is not only a good play, but a necessary one...a superb showcase of the best of Brisbane student theatre"
"a painfully honest, entertaining and incredibly relateable play about arts in the city of Brisbane."
