Menage begins, as most trysts might, with a chance meeting, a text message, and a phone call and it continues on to an intimate encounter in a bedroom.
An audience of two hears intimate stories of sex work in a small room above a shop in North Melbourne. If you saw this show with a friend, would it be more or less uncomfortable than experiencing it with a stranger?
Ryan Good has collected and curated stories of sex workers in Melbourne, London and Edinburgh. It’s frank and uncompromising, but in no way feels exploitative. And there’s something really refreshing in how these stories are examined, even as it’s hard to tell where the line between reality and theatre lies.
A memorable encounter, to be sure.
