3 BORN AND BRED CANBERRA ACTORS RETURN HOME WITH THEIR “UNDERGROUND CULT HIT SHOW” FOR 3 NIGHTS ONLY!!

HARD ON @ THE HUSH LOUNGE

Hard On was the underground cult hit of the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2009, selling out the two week run and enthralling audiences with their crazy Mardi Gras antics.

Conceived and Directed by Wanniassa boy Brian Cobb, who is fresh from producing his first feature film, this ensemble cast of 8 includes 2 born and bred Canberra actresses, Miranda O’Hare and Jane Porter.

Fadden girl, Miranda O’Hare is fresh from a guest role on ‘Packed to the Rafters’ and  ABC’s ‘The Cut’.  Miranda doubles as both Producer and Actress in Hard On.

Forrest girl, Jane Porter returns home from her critically acclaimed role in The Crucible where she wowed audiences in her role as ‘Goodie Proctor’.

HARD ON is set in 1986 on the eve of the Mardi Gras parade.   3 houses on Bourke Street open their doors for our amusement as the “Gay Bachelor Of the Year” picks up a one night stand who out stays his welcome, the lesbians next door hold a party that goes incredibly wrong, while across the road the local Unicorn in denial about his sexuality decides to come out to his flatmates.

3 Nights Only! June 3, 4 and 5 – Shows @ 8 pm!

I absolutely think it is worth seeing. I saw it in Sydney and it is such a fun night. Set in the 80’s, doesn’t take itself too seriously, has an edge of seriousness…. I’ll be there for sure.

This was an enjoyable night out – thanks muchly for the tix Riotact. Did anybody else see this? Was the unicorn a metaphor/figment of his imagination … and if ‘yes’, why did the other flatmate also interact with the unicorn also? Or were they both figments? I actually asked the playwrite after the show … and she said ‘it can be whatever you want it to mean’ (which perhaps means that she doesn’t know either). Deep.
