lawrence eric davis

YOU ARE A LIAR!!

But do you lie about love?

Award winning trickster, Red Bastard, stimulates your moral highs and lows as he asks each audience:

WHAT ARE THE RULES OF LOVE?

A hilarious ★★★★★ explosion of fun for singles, couples and anyone who’s dared to adore.

You’ll never look at your fellow audience members the same after this hilariously fun 5-star affair that exposes how we love and why. Former Cirque du Soleil Clowns Eric Davis and Aitor Basauri have created a mind-warping show for singles, couples and anyone who’s dared to adore.

★★★★★ -Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
“Just go… Hilarious and beautifully written… a tantalizing experience as funny as it is unforgiving. There really is nothing quite like it.”

★★★★★ -The Adelaidian
“An unquestionable must see! Hysterically funny… thought provoking… unforgettable performance.”

★★★★★ -Broadway Baby
Perfectly crafted… a show about lies, love and the lies we tell about love… A bacchanal buffet of frank admissions and delicious guilt.

★★★★★ -Get The Chance
“Hilarious, shocking and fantastic! You cannot help but laugh. Precise and perfect.”

★★★★★ -GLAM ADELAIDE
“Graceful, funny and confronting… Red Bastard raptures the audience.”

The show to see… Never to be forgotten… Utterly spellbinding, even tender. A full standing ovation from the deliriously happy packed room.
-The Scotsman

Go! Eric Davis is a Master. Hilariously shocking… deliciously rude… Makes us question our moral reasoning- admitting secrets and debating (as he) drags us willingly into his world.

Start Swimming

James Fritz

“What you doing?…Standing on the grass…What does the sign say?…Keep off the grass…” and so START SWIMMING begins. In a room: 11 people with nothing to go on other than the urges they feel and the need to fight to move ahead, to survive. Is it worth taking risks when a misstep can destroy all they’ve worked for? How do they fight unseen powers attempting to control…and when the rules keep changing? With Pavlovian consequences and Orwellian overtones, this play continues TWA’s tradition of presenting hard-hitting contemporary theatre by young artists. From the makers of FUGEE. WARNING: mature language.
