TRIPLE X

 

By Glace Chase
Directed by Paige Rattray

 

World premiere

 

Twenty-first century love

 

Scotty is living the dream. A successful Wall Street banker, he has just bought a Tribeca loft for a cool three million and is about to marry his beautiful and loaded girlfriend Kymberley. But Scotty has a secret that will outrage both his conservative mother Deb and progressive sister Claire: his ongoing affair with charismatic trans drag performer Dexie. This is an hysterically funny love story, but not for the faint-hearted.

NYC-based, two-time Griffin Award winner Glace Chase is both the writer and star of Triple X, a deep dive into hypocrisy, self-deception, and the unknowable contours of attraction. Directed by Sydney Theatre Company’s Associate Director Paige Rattray (The Beauty Queen of Leenane), it’s brilliantly comic, wildly provocative and ultimately moving.

 

Also featuring Akos Armont (Romeo & Juliet), Christen O’Leary, Contessa Treffone (The Harp in the South) and Meyne Wyatt (Bloodland), Triple X is a tender and wickedly funny look at social taboos and love out of bounds.

 

“You’ve not really done this before, have you Scotty?”  Dexie
