The Butterfly Club Announces March Lineup
By Aleisha McCormack, directed by Julia Zemiro (rockwiz)
Two years ago, after a chance meeting on facebook and a four-month skype based courtship; Aleisha took a chance…and a plane from Melbourne to London to meet a boy. Richard.
However, not having access to each other’s genitals gave them some time to really get to know each other. After years of bad shags, dodgy blind dates and being dumped at the altar (5 years before) could Aleisha really have met ‘the one’ thanks to Mark Zuckerberg?
Set on a plane, How to get Rich is about taking a risk for love, bad bikini waxes, how many 'worse case relationship scenarios’ you can conjure up during a 23-hour flight and how being kidnapped is character building.
Tue 6 to Sun 11 March || 8pm Tue, Wed, Sun; 9pm Thu, Fri, Sat || All tix $25 ($20 on Tuesday!)
