One-night stands are awkward. One-night stands with animals are more awkward. And when you're as desperate to please as Bobby, things get awkward as f*%k. He's just a guy with too much love to give, and a burning desire to give it to consensual adult mammals.
A perfectly written dark comedy of one-sided conversations between a man and the animals he has… well, f*%ked. It is strange. Oh boy, is it strange – but if you decide to take a walk on the wild side (and you really should) and delve into a bit of strange, then this is the show for you.
Following a critically acclaimed season in Western Australia, Gavin Roach brings Rob Hayes’ dark comedy about love, acceptance and boundaries to Melbourne.
‘I think if you’re onboard with the title, you won’t have any problem with the content… his ballsy, original play has a depth and poignancy that endures long after you’ve stopped LOLing at the name.’ Time Out
‘Hayes’ darkly funny script masks a disturbing psychological examination of mental illness and loneliness… this play is much more subtle and interesting than the brashness of its title.’ The Stage (UK)
‘Rob Hayes’ deliciously uncomfortable script foregrounds in-depth character study.’ The List (UK)
'Awkward Conversations With Animals I’ve F*cked is a thought-provoking piece of theatre, masterfully performed by a consummate actor. The storytelling was subtle and provocative both, and I would recommend the experience to anyone who likes to have their thinking challenged.' OUTinPerth
