Bottom returns to Melbourne for Midsumma

GR-Bottom-Ryan-Stewart-photo-by-Ali-ChoudhryGavin Roach presents the Melbourne return season of Bottom by Will Hudson at the Blustone Church Arts Space from 1 February, before playing The Butterfly Club from 7 February, as part of the 2022 Midsumma Festival.

Locked in his bathroom during a tragic third date, Willy asks: are you a Top or a Bottom?

Bottom is about bums, Beyoncé and burnt fish fingers. Join Willy for a queer coming-of-age remix, as he questions if ‘bottom’ in the bedroom means ‘bottom’ in life – and whether Beyoncé can help put his love on top.

This is for anyone who hates making the first move. Anyone who thinks they are unlovable. Anyone that’s ever tried to be someone they’re not.

“Bottom is an incredibly touching piece of theatre that moved me in ways I didn’t expect it to.” – Broadway Baby
