OPEN HEART Announced At The Butterfly Club
In a messy Coburg apartment we meet Angus (Lachie Hewson), a semi- accomplished Author, and his Long Time Boyfriend Mark (Callum O'Malley), An Executive Assistant. There is a deep love between them, even if they've grown apart.
In this original play, Emerging writer Dean Robinson asks how much can love last when two people are heading in different directions? Shining light on issues between Bi-Sexual and Gay Men and Open Relationships, Director Stephen Amos explores how two men from different worlds can work together to keep their love as it used to be.
Robinson calls this play an amalgamation of (500) Days Of Summer, Call Me By Your Name and Please Like Me. He is interested in what makes a successful relationship function, and how time and change can effect a true love. Can resentment overpower love? Or does Love truly trump all?
