Appalling Behaviour

There is something disturbingly honest about living on the streets and wondering why…

Join AWGIE award winning playwright and actor Stephen House on an unforgettable journey into the darkest corners of the seedy Parisian underworld. Written while living on the streets of Paris, this acclaimed work will have its WA premiere 14 March – 9 April 2011 as part of The Blue Room Theatre’s Up Close season.

From the banks of The Seine River to the tucked away all-night sleazy clubs, this poetic solo performance about a man living on the very edge will keep you thinking long after you leave the theatre…

Creator Stephen House has had 18 plays, 4 short films and 4 solo exhibitions produced and toured both nationally and internationally. Appalling Behaviour debuted in Adelaide in August 2010. In 2011 it will tour to Perth, Melbourne, Queensland and India.

House’s work is commissioned often and has been awarded by the Adelaide Fringe, The Australian Writer’s Guild (twice AWGIE recipient), and has been shortlisted for The Patrick White and Queensland Premier’s Drama awards.

Currently working on three new commissions, House is excited to be bringing Appalling Behaviour to Western Australia for the very first time.
