Hot Mess — KXT Theatre and Bakehouse Theatre Co
This new comedic play looks at the random encounters of a public bathroom on a night out.
The nightclub bathroom is a sacred space. Friends have been made and lost within those hallowed walls. Who among us hasn't had a life-altering experience in the bathroom at Soho or World Bar. This is what the new play taking residency at the Kings Cross Theatre is all about.
Hot Mess is the latest production from The General Public and Bakehouse Theatre Company that peers into the lives of six twenty-somethings on a night out and their interactions in a public bathroom. Directed by Tasha O'Brien (Playlist), the play stars six of Sydney's most promising comedic actors: Jenna Suffern (Two Queers Walk into a Bar), Courtney Ammenhauser (FBi Radio), Mây Trần (Playlist), Jessica Adie (Sydney Comedy Festival), Alicia Dulnuan-Demou (Good Enough Show) and Hannah Grace Fulton (Noughty Girls).
After originally premiering at Old 505 Theatre in 2019, the return of Hot Mess at KXT has been two years in the making. The show provides a hilarious and nostalgic look at rowdy nights out while centring female and queer experiences. It'll have you reflecting on all your favourite memories, or lack of, from nights out clubbing and reaching for your phone to message that one person you met at Good God Small Club back in 2015.
Tickets for the show are $35-42, and if you're under 30 you can nab a discount on tickets every Thursdays.
