GATE 64

“Sometimes life can be a real cunt but sometimes it’s the most beautifulest thing in the whole world. So we hold onto that. Ya know. That something nice might happen. That someone nice might happen. And then what do you know, we’re doing it. We’re living”

Winnie lives in an airport. She didn’t always live in an airport, but she does now. She likes it though. She loves the tension, the high stress situations, watching people crack under the pressure. She’ll chat to anyone who’ll sit still long enough and hand out advice like candies, though it’s easy to hold the mirror up for others because we don’t have to look at ourselves.   

With a heavy dose of whimsy, Gate 64 is a playful look at life on the fringes. Stories that have been meticulously collected like stamps are presented with pride and expertise by our host and raconteur, Winnie.

HIT

Hit is a blisteringly paced new comedy by writer/director Lincoln Vickery that follows David, a man who comes home to find his boyfriend Marlon has shot a woman dead, her body on the lounge room floor.

Starring Seamus Quinn, Adam Sollis, Elle Harris and Emma O'Sullivan, Hit is an action packed 50 minutes of danger, meditation and salmon. 

There's shouting, there's guns, there's a stand-off at the end...it's a show about love. 

Written & Directed by Lincoln Vickery

With Seamus Quinn, Adam Sollis, Elle Harris and Emma O'Sullivan

ORANGE IS THE NEW CRACK

Gwen and Sue. Gonna smash ya face. Just say when. Anytime. Anyplace.

Don’t wrong Gwen and Sue. They’re bad. They’re the first drug dealers the world has ever seen. Well, 10,000 years ago they called it drugs, now we just call it ‘fruit’. They sell all the good stuff: bananas, apples, melon, oranges and a giddy new discovery they call pashing-fruit.  However, when their hard-earned profits get snatched and their next exploration is in jeopardy – they must teach the slimy thief a lesson and take back what is rightfully theirs.

Written by James Sweeny
