A bit of olde world filth by Steven Dawson

A randy romp and a brand-spankingly new dark comedy from Steven Dawson.

Two Elizabethan sex workers find themselves in over their heads, mired in revenge, murderous intrigue, romance and their imagined part in the untimely death of famous playwright Christopher Marlowe. But not all is as it seems. Ribald, raunchy, bloody and definitely not historically accurate.

Australia's longest running LGBTI+ theatre company Out Cast Theatre finally returns to the Melbourne stage, fresh from record-breaking sellout seasons in Edinburgh, Brighton UK Fringe and the International Dublin Gay Theatre Festival.
