Eight Gigabytes of Hardcore Pornography opens on Friday 16 September at the Drill Hall Theatre Mullumbimby

The Drill Hall Theatre in Mullumbimby presents Eight Gigabytes of Hardcore Pornography – before the censorship police come storming into Mullum, the director of this new production, Liz Chance, is quick to allay concerns. ‘Sorry guys, there is no actual pornography in this show, but there is some nudity.’

This is a fiercely funny play written by Declan Greene, Artistic Director and CEO Griffin Theatre Company, directed by Chance, a veteran of Australian stage and screen, and stars two well known local actors, Kasadevi Curtis and John Rado

It is a story of about two lonely middle-aged people trying to find love on-line. ‘It’s about connection and isolation, about our secrets, about the voices inside our heads, and about wanting someone… anyone… to fulfil our fantasies,’ says Liz.

The writer of Eight Gigabytes of Hardcore Pornography, Declan Green is an award-winning theatre-maker, director, playwright, screenwriter and dramaturg. 

Liz Chance has appeared in A Country Practice, Home and Away, Water Rats, Blue Heelers, Rafferty’s Rules and GP. Liz has taught at NIDA and is Artistic Director at the Dill Hall Theatre.

Both actors are well known and highly experienced. John Rado is a NIDA trained director of 40 years with experience across sixty TV, screen, and theatre productions. John has appeared in feature films including Treasure Island, Game of Swords and Burns Point.

Kasadevi Curtis has appeared in 35 stage productions and has performed in short films and TV. She appeared in Mr Bailey’s Minder, Mark Colvin’s Kidney (Drill Hall Theatre) and One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest (Ballina Players).

Eight Gigabytes of Hardcore Pornography opens on Friday 16 September at the Drill Hall Theatre Mullumbimby and runs for three weekends until Sunday 2 October (Friday and Saturday nights at 7.30pm and Sundays 5pm). Tickets $30/$25.
