“Charming and disarmingly clever… Drake is one of those rare provocative performers who are uber smart but ultra cosy at heart…” (Gscene, Brighton UK)

 ** Sold out shows & rave responses in Europe, the USA & Canada**

 Jimmy is trying to quit romance, cold turkey, so he’s joined the Romance-aholics Anonymous group. Since his break-up, he’s been trying to prove that he’s “Great! Fine! Never been better!” His secret comfort is cheesy old black and white romance films – but don’t tell his radical friends… 

 An exposing, funny and tender look at relationships, the bold visions we have and our often hilarious struggles to live up to them. Run-ins with the anti-monogamy police about jealousy, online dating mishaps and figuring out whether to throw out or reinvent mainstream relationship ideals all combine in a smart, fast-paced take on dating in an age of social media and technology. 

 This accessible piece of theatre features visually stunning, highly interactive projections and sound. Sunny Drake is thrilled to bring this international hit back home for its Australian premiere.  


19 February following the performance.

 JUTE invites you to a conversation with the Transgender Seeking team following the performance on Thursday.  Immediately following the show, the actor and team will return to stage.  It's a great opportunity to discuss your response to the show, for you to ask questions about the process of creating the work and allow you to delve into the creative process!


Like a TED talk, it's only 20 minutes and you can come away knowing more about how theatre is created (the tricks of the trade), the problem solving that the creative team went through to come up with solutions, and an understanding of how these creative beings work. And of course it's a great opportunity to meet the cast after their performance. 

 We look forward to these conversations with you.
