The Irresistible

The Irresistible

A Co-Production between Side Pony Productions & The Last Great Hunt

Let’s begin with two people.

Deep in the gloom a phone rings. They take the call. The voice on the line slips beneath her skin and curls its fingers around his stomach.

You can’t see it, you can’t touch it, you can barely feel it. You can’t hold on tight enough.

These people, these sisters and lovers and pilots and brothers are joined deep beneath the surface, below knowledge, down where desire and depravity lie. The line goes dead and these two people catch a glimpse of what’s to come, as it retreats back into the fog.

A new work from Side Pony Productions (The Confidence Man, The Pride) and The Last Great Hunt (Falling through Clouds, The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer), The Irresistible is a reckless, intoxicating love letter to the subconscious.

“Brilliant work…This is the reason you go to see live theatre.” – 5 Stars

Mariyon Slany, ArtsHub

David Zampatti, From the Turnstiles

“Watts and Daff command the stage”- 4 Stars

Annelies Gartner, The West Australian

“…compelling, entertaining, and even brave in its attempts to define the indefinable and travel into uncharted territory. The Irresistible will have its hold on you, whether you’re aware of it or not.”

Cicely Binford, Perth Arts Live

“…go and see The Irresistible, it is a truly remarkable play.”

Fourth Wall Media

“Inventively staged, evocatively scored, and extraordinarily acted…”

David O’Connell, X-Press

“…wittily and seamlessly directed and performed…”

Mariyon Slany, ArtsHub

“It is a wondrously strange performance…”

David O’Connell, X-Press

“It’s achievement rests on the rigour of Pepper’s creative processes and the knockout technical effects integral to it.”

David Zampatti, From the Turnstiles

“… Daff is ferocious, scouring her characters raw. She is highly charged, sometimes vicious, and gives the standout performance of the Perth stage this year…”

David Zampatti, From the Turnstiles

“This show has given me so much to think about and it was an absolute pleasure to see.”

Claire Nichols, Books & Arts, Radio National
