Phillip has a moment to himself.
He hears a familiar moo from a cow outside.
The farmwork is done, he had spaghetti for dinner, and he’s on his second beer-in-bed of the night.
The rain is sudden on the tin roof above him and it just makes his mattress more comfy.
The house is empty.
The rain is hard.
He undoes his belt and finds the right play button.
Deafening thunder and a blinding flash of lightning.
Stillness eventually comes back.
Phillip is still. The movie is still playing.
He hears a somehow lusty moo from a cow outside.
The rain is rock hard.
From the writer of ‘Leopard Print Loincloth’, ‘Sexy Dead Schoolboys’, and ‘Five Stars’, comes a brand new play about lust and satisfaction and forearm muscles.

About Theatre Works

Theatre Works is one of Australia’s longest-running independent theatres, constantly reinvigorating and reimagining the sector by providing a hotbed for artists and audience development. The organisation fills a vital niche in the Australian cultural landscape as an artistic home and destination for the ambitious, the new and the eminent. Theatre Works champions artists and work that embraces difference and celebrates risk, working to provide a supportive public platform for marginalised conversations and voices. This Fringe season, Theatre Works is showcasing ten shows over three weeks across two venues - Theatre Works (14 Acland Street ,St Kilda) & Explosives Factory (Rear Laneway, 67 Inkerman Street).
