AUSLAN-interpreted Performance - Friday 13 September 7pm
A service provided for audiences who are deaf and use Australian Sign Language (AUSLAN). Experienced AUSLAN theatre interpreters stand to the side of the stage and translate what the actors are saying or singing into AUSLAN.
Ridiculously handsome men battling White Walkers. Ridiculously beautiful women riding fire-breathing dragons. And everyone either trying to kill or woo each other. Nudity? Maybe. Laughs? For sure.

Sink your teeth into this binge worthy thriller.
April doesn’t think about the inexplicable event that defined her childhood. Bridget is haunted by memories she just can’t forget. Cassie is not your average child. And whatever happened to those plane crash survivors?
Step into an intoxicating world where time slips and slides. Location is fluid. In this bold and unsettling new work, two exceptional performers bleed between characters to navigate a tangled web of stories. Disturbing new connections will be uncovered. Secrets will invade every crevice, and the tense tapestry of reality will begin to unravel.
You can’t see it. You can barely hear it. Feel it’s breath on your neck for a moment, before it retreats back into the fog.
The Irresistible 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). Following critically acclaimed seasons at Dark Mofo and HOTA, this enthralling performance will seep into your imagination for days.
Experience spine-tingling mystery and inescapable tension. Can you resist?
