DIRT by Angus Cameron

"It is an edge-of-the-seat experience, wonderfully written and expertly performed. Bravo!"

- The Barefoot Review

Set over the course of a single night, DIRT is a contemporary queer thriller that follows two strangers who meet in modern-day Moscow. Both need something from the other, both have something to hide.

‘Occasionally, 60 minutes can change your life, and for me, Patrick Livesey’s production of Dirt is an example of how fine theatre can showcase and educate about human rights issues in a subtle, compelling way.’ - Stage Whispers

‘Patrick Livesey and Wil King … are brilliant. Livesey as the arrogant Russian tour guide and King as the earnestly curious tourist, their chemistry is electric and with minimal props and set can create a world that is totally believable. Whether the scenes are set in a nightclub cubicle or a bedroom, their talent really takes you there.’

- The Upside News

‘It is a gripping drama, a strong commentary on journalism, and if that isn’t enough for 45 minutes, you leave the theatre with a different sense of worldliness.’  - The Advertiser

'It is King and Livesey’s phenomenal acting skills, however that combine with Coleman’s visionary direction that show rather than tell the pain and struggles facing the main characters. Even in portions where Livesey imparts their story it is subtly intense, not a pin drop could be heard – Livesey’s restraint and pent up heartache burst to the surface in a poignant expression of true pain.' - Fourth Wall Media

'It was Livesey’s performance which was the standout of the night; the gut-wrenching rollercoaster of emotions they deployed to tell their character’s story made the audience crackle with in a shared vibrancy.' - Pelican Magazine
