Pornography is ruining Ben's life. It seemed ok until he had a problem. A big problem. Now the dinner party he's hosting with his faux-spiritual girlfriend Veronica is the last thing on his mind. But it shouldn't be. Veronica's outlandish brother Gustav isn't just coming over for ravioli. He's coming over for a revolution.
When Gustav arrives with his new fiancé Kathryn, the siblings unravel secrets of a dark past. Each reveal trumps the last in a world where performance is everything, and reality is nothing.
Sex Object is a modern Australian play about beauty and sex in an age of phones, porn and pretence filled with "dialogue that appeals to audiences across the board, no matter what letter comes after your generation" (The Buzz).
Its premiere in Sydney opened to rave reviews, with the Sydney Arts Guide calling it "absorbing from the get-go, thought-provoking, and above all funny. It's hard to find theatre as downright entertaining as this" and the AU review " a fast-paced, uber-real, laugh-a-minute look at what makes people tick in the modern age. And it is furiously good fun".
