Unwrap Me, a showcase of Christmas themed short plays by new and emerging Australian playwrights, wrapped up with a sold out show at the Courtyard Studio on Saturday 20 December.
My play “Sexy Beth’s Giant Dildo Collection” closed out the show, and I am delighted to report that the reviews have been very positive. Below are a couple comments I particularly enjoyed:

I’d also like to thank my amazing cast Brendan Kelly, Alison McGregor and Rob de Fries. As a first time director I knew I needed to surround myself with experienced and talented actors, and I couldn’t have asked for a better troupe to work with. They took my script and lifted it to another level. In fact, they knocked it out of the park!
