Angela Nguyen plays Viv in our upcoming production of Two Nights out of Bed by Will Farnsworth.

When asked for a little summary of Viv’s character here’s what she had to say…

‘Viv is an understated individual who has fought hard to navigate through their identity whilst being embroiled in everyone's mess. They may come across callous and sarcastic at times but in reality, their tough love approach shows that they only want what's best for those around them.’

Here’s a bit more about the amazing person who plays them..

Angela is a healthcare student in her final year of study. She's excited to be on stage for the first time, especially in the revival of a show that has been in the works since lockdown last year. When she's not in clinic or in the theatre, she's looking for the next new shiny hobby to fixate on.

We open this coming Thursday the 5th of May at 7pm!

Katharine O’Hagan plays Andre in our upcoming production of Two Nights out of Bed by Will Farnsworth opening THIS WEEK on Wednesday the 4th May at 7PM.

When asked for a little summary of Andre’s character here’s what she had to say…

‘Andre is highly strung, entirely dependent on the love he receives from his partners. While on the surface he can seem selfish and inconsiderate, he is ultimately driven by a desperate need to be cared for and a crushing loneliness.’

You’ll see Andre and the others this Wednesday the 4th - Saturday the 7th of May at the Guild Theatre, Union House.

Here’s a little bit more about the lovely human who plays him 🤩

Katharine is a student of the arts who is very passionate about theatre and performance. She has been in a few shows before but never one as challenging or thought-provoking as this, and has been so glad for the opportunity to work creatively with similarly-minded individuals.

We open this week! Get your tickets now > https://www.eventbrite.com/e/320500745357

Liz Dokukina plays Julian in our upcoming production of Two Nights out of Bed by Will Farnsworth.

When asked for a little summary of Julian’s character here’s what she had to say…

‘Julian can come off as a very cold and rational person because of his workaholic exterior, but in reality he is kindhearted and cares a lot about Andre and Damien.’

You’ll see Julian and the others from Wednesday the 4th - Saturday the 7th of May at the Guild Theatre, Union House.

Here’s a little bit more about the lovely human who plays him 🤩

Liz is an exchange student from the University of Edinburgh. She is extremely excited to be in an in-person show again. She has thoroughly enjoyed the rehearsal process and is extremely grateful to have met such wonderful people during her time in Australia.

(ID: Three white women sit on the top shelf of an industrial shelving unit. They stare out at us with fixed, unsmiling expressions.

The woman on the left wears all black - a leather jacket and jeans - and white trainers. Her dark hair is tied back, and her eyes underneath a fringe are heavily made up in eyeshadow and liner. Her elbow rests on her knee which is propped up on the shelf. Underneath, purple letters read ‘Damien’. She is slightly turned away from the other two, though her hand is clasped by the middle woman.

In the middle, a woman with dark hair pulled tightly back wears a khaki coloured suit jacket and pants with a crisp white top with a brown belt and white trainers. Underneath her, purple letters read ‘Julian’. Her head rests atop the woman on the right’s head, hand cupped behind her head.

The woman on the right leans slightly forward and into the woman in the middle’s left side. Her dark hair is down and to her shoulders, but tucked behind the ears. She wears a long leather jacket, white top and lightly checkered pants with black boots. Underneath her, purple letters read ‘Andre’.

In the top right corner, purple letters read ‘Two Nights out of Bed’. Below this, letters in black read ‘4 - 7 May, Guild Theatre.)
