Welcome to 16th Ave Theatre


16th Ave Theatre’s next darkly funny show…

14 June – 29 June

After Dinner

By Andrew Bovell.

Directed by Geraldine Broderick

A knockout comedy by master playwright Andre Bovell following five eccentric lonely hearts in a 1980’s pub bistro. Paula is frocked up, it is Monika’s first night out in years and Dympie just wants a table with a good view of the band. Sitting on the next table are semi-eligible blokes Gordon and Stephen are shaking off the office.
As the night proceeds, inhibitions and social restraint are abandoned, exposing the foibles, pain and humour of the characters inner lives. It is an acutely observed but tender-hearted account of relationships and behaviour. A comic gem!

Adult themes – contains sexually explicit language
