Presented by Albany Entertainment Centre

The Irresistible is dark, creepy, mysterious and a little bit disturbing.

Deliberately designed to throw you off guard, The Irresistible will leave you with a resonating sense of deeper meaning that dwells just on the fringes of your mind. The Irresistible references a number of filmic conventions transformed into a live theatre space; with similarities to Stranger Things and Twin Peaks. The smoke filled, sci-fi nature of the performance is laden with mystery and other worldliness but at its core has memorable characters that expertly tread the fine line between comedy and crisis as they swirl around in the high stakes drama of the story. 

Deep in the gloom a phone rings. She takes the call. The voice on the line slips beneath her skin and curls its fingers around her stomach, threatening to drag her beneath the surface, below knowledge, down where desire and depravity lie. Bridget is haunted by the memory her sister April has long chosen to forget. The mysterious and unexplained permeates every moment of their lives. You can’t see it, you can’t touch it, you can barely feel it. You can’t hold on tight enough, as its darkness encircles you, then retreats back into the fog. 

Director and co-playwrite, Denmark's very own Zoe Pepper brings this multi award-winning national tour back to her hometown.

"This is theatre with great strength of purpose, and a technical achievement that will leave you gobsmacked. The Irresistible is simply irresistible." ★★★★ ½
- David Zampatti, From the Turnstiles

"Watts and Daff command the stage" ★★★★  
- Annelies Gartner, The West Australian

"moodiness and tension worthy of a Hitchcock movie…the script at once comical, current and gripping."
- Kiesten McCauley, Stage Whispers

"…compelling, entertaining, and even brave in its attempts to define the indefinable and travel into uncharted territory. The Irresistible will have its hold on you, whether you’re aware of it or not."
- Cicely Binford, Perth Arts Live

"…go and see The Irresistible, it is a truly remarkable play."
- Fourth Wall Media
