Young, horny and available. Gavin Roach in association with Beyond the Yard presents the Australian premiere of Sink by UK Playwright Tobias Graham at The Blue Room Theatre as part of the 2020 Fringe World program from 4 February.
Six millennials meet in many bathrooms of many house parties. Secrets are shared, drugs are swallowed, horoscopes are consulted and hook-ups abound. Standard stuff.
Too young to feel fully adult but too old to pretend that things don’t matter, this is an homage to hazy parties, to kissing and confrontation, to asking the stars for advice, and being on the cusp of fully grown. Everything matters too much and not at all; it’s funny, it’s sexy, and it’s totally recognisable.
Questions of queerness, consent and toxic masculinity all coalesce in this gritty new play, lifted from the UK and spat onto Perth’s stages. With an ensemble cast of WA’s finest young talent, see these young people star in the stories of their own rocky, fragile lives.
“Sink’s main success is in accurately depicting a period of young adulthood where no person is secure in their own identity.” – The Live Review
