ROUGH DRAFT #40
By Glace Chase
Scotty is living the dream. A successful Wall Street banker, he has just bought a 3mill Tribeca loft and tomorrow he will marry his super-rich-with-family-money girlfriend Kymberley. But Scotty has a secret that his upwardly mobile mother Deb & lesbian activist sister Claire are about to uncover: his long term ongoing affair with charismatic trans performer Dexie. The play is a cauterisingly funny and unexpectedly moving deep dive into hypocrisy, privilege and the true nature of love. And it features one of the most eye popping/stomach churning sex scenes in recent theatre history. It’s all a bit Triple X.

About Rough Drafts
Rough Drafts is an opportunity to see fragments of a work in progress and to gain insight into the theatre making process.
Rough Drafts support the development of new Australian works by providing artists with an opportunity to experiment with and grow their ideas. Writers and directors are given access to a rehearsal space, a paid team of actors or creatives and dramaturgical support. They may use the week and resources to embark on something unscripted or they might choose to develop a script that is already complete in draft form. The outcomes vary greatly according to the project.
At the end of the workshop week, we invite you into the development process to have a sneak peek of a work in progress at the free public showing. These showings are an opportunity for the artists to try their ideas in front of an audience... and it’s a chance for you to learn about how new plays are made.
Stay up to date with future Rough Draft showings by signing up to STC emails.
