“Intimacy is a stunning psychological and theatrical achievement.” Emer O’Kelly, Irish Independent
Be moved by this divinely enthralling play based on real life encounters with strangers on a Melbourne Street.
How much of ourselves are we prepared to show? Is this really honesty or just another performance?
Through a series of intimate and diverse conversations, Intimacy gives a candid, funny and sometimes disquieting portrait of everyday life where personal anxieties are never far from the surface.
Intimacy shows that the differences between us are often the most surprising points of connection and examines how people can very quickly share the intimate details of their lives with total strangers.
