Dreamhouse Artists in association with the Tamarama Rock Surfers Theatre Company present

Written by Theodor Holman amd Theo Van Gogh (film direction)
Adapted and Directed by Sam Atwell

This November, the Tamarama Rock Surfers join forces with Dreamhouse Artists (Bondi Dreaming 2011) to present The Interview a sexy drama written by Theo Van Gogh, adapted and directed by Sam Atwell (Bondi Dreaming), starring Kip Gamblin (All Saints, Dance Academy) and Alison McGirr (Home & Away, Three Sisters) and produced by Nick Bolton (I want to sleep with Tom Stoppard).

Katya is a star. A B-list, tabloid on demand, celebrity screwing sensation and no-one can get enough. Over the course of one night we witness her encounter with Pierre Peters, burnt out political correspondent with dark desires and a thinking problem.

Forced together for an interview neither wants be a part of, before long they’re circling each other trading verbal body blows struggling for the upper hand. As they probe into each other’s lives trying to find holes in each others façade, it’s anyone’s guess who will tell the most lies and expose the biggest secrets. Just who’s playing who?

Set in a sumptuous beachside apartment, The Interview is an electrically charged, lightning paced battle of wits that explores the minefield that is fame, celebrity and the power that comes with it.
