"I'm sorry. It's just I thought this was just... cake."

About

Ant & Annie are a couple. So are Bill & Bella. Both are frighteningly close to middle age.

As each couple sits down to some cake, nothing is said but everything is meant. For this is love done the contemporary way: conversations punctuated with text messaging, pleasures punctuated by food intolerances and happiness punctuated with rage. Cake’s not the only thing you could slice a knife through…

A deliciously funny exploration of love and sex in the modern world by one of the country’s most daring and witty playwrights.

Presented by Michael Sieders and Griffin Independent

Reviews

‘Director Shannon Murphy…swings the pendulum from playful to poignant very entertainingly.’  SMH 

‘Under director Shannon Murphy’s stewardship, Vanessa Bates’ play Porn.Cake is a lively, at times funny and largely attention-grabbing piece of work.’  Daily Telegraph

‘Porn.Cake is out of the ordinary…’ Stage Noise

‘The conception of this play, and the exploration of the material in this exaggerated comic milieu is an adventurous surprise success in the Australian play-wrighting canon that we usually see.’ Kevin Jackson

‘This production will make you laugh…’ What’s On Sydney
