A new romantic-comedy by shake & stir theatre co

Gwen is in a rut. A love rut. On the surface she appears to have the goods, but deep down something is stopping her from landing her Mr Right – and no amount of booze and sarcasm seems to be helping. The truth of the matter is, when things start to heat up, Gwen's flame goes out.

Keen to break the cycle once and for all, Gwen embarks on a series of four first dates with one explosive goal in mind. The question is - do any of these guys hold the key to reviving Gwen’s passions?

Lucky for Gwen, that’s where you (and your smart phones) come into play. This unique, choose-your-own-adventure theatre-experience has the audience voting in real-time for what Gwen does next. That's right, this happy ending is in your hands!

Starring Johnny Balbuziente (Married At First Sight) and Cece Peters (Playing for Keeps, True Story with Hamish & Andy, The Wrong Girl), Fourthcoming is hilarious, sexy and surprisingly moving.

Grab your friends, leave the kids at home and join us on a date like no other!


Q: It says the show is "interactive" - will I be dragged up on stage?
A: No - we expect you to leave the performing to the professionals.

Q: Do I have to vote?
A: It's up to you - we welcome both voters and voyeurs.

Q: Will I want to come again?
A: What would Gwen do?
