Event Details

Sydney's favourite queer performers bring cult cinema classics to the stage, with a gender bending twist.

LGBTQIA+ films always seem to end in heartbreak, angst and death. Boring! So let's switch it up by taking a heteronormative film that is loved by the queer community, and giving the script to an all queer cast to read live on stage.

Jenna creates a safe, inclusive, fun space for LGBTQIA+ people to express themselves, but that doesn't mean her ‘table reads’ are only for the queer community. They’re also loved by lovers of film and comedy.

Live table reads are huge in cities like LA and are just gaining traction in Australia. Table reads of cult romcoms bring nostalgia, escapism and hilarity to the audience. This is especially exciting for queer performers and audiences as our experiences are usually portrayed as angsty coming out stories or doomed love affairs. Adapting a cult 'straight' romcom for queer audiences provides us with an opportunity to write ourselves into those classic screen moments.

Film and cast to be announced soon. Stay tuned!
