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. 2018 Helpmann Award Nominee for Best Play, The Irresistible is intoxicatingly creepy, reminiscent of Stranger Things and Twin Peaks. This bold and original new work is the exceptional first collaboration between Side Pony Productions (The Confidence Man, The Pride) and The Last Great Hunt (Falling through Clouds, The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer).
Warnings: Smoke effects, strobe lighting, sexual and adult themes, strong language and references to suicide.
