Shire of Broome presents The Irresistible

Saturday 28th September 2019


2018 Helpmann Award Nominee for Best Play, The Irresistible intoxicatingly creepy, reminiscent of Stranger Things and Twin Peaks. This bold and original new work is the exceptional first collaboration between Side Pony Productions (The Confidence Man, The Pride) and The Last Great Hunt (Falling through Clouds, The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer). Bridget is haunted by the memory her sister April has long chosen to forget. The mysterious and unexplained permeates every moment of their lives. You can’t see it, you can’t touch it, you can barely feel it. You can’t hold on tight enough, as its darkness encircles you, then retreats back into the fog. 

 Told through multiple parallel narratives that intersect through mystery and sci-fi. Locations and time bleed into one another with dream-like fluidity as performers transition from one character to the next at breakneck-speed, in this gripping production featuring Adriane Daff and Tim Watts. This is a really elegant and sophisticated show that has great resonance with a younger audience demographic, 18-35yo, particularly in the way it draws on film references, creating suspense with a creepy/sci-fi undercurrent.
