AA founder Nick Bolton produces Toby Schmitz‘s new play ‘I want to sleep with Tom Stoppard, presented by Tamarama Rock Surfers
Luke is going out with Sarah, a brilliant actress who’s a bit older than him. And a lot more dangerous.Sarah crashes a dinner at his parents’ house. Tom and Jackie are regular theatre subscribers who know how to put on a gourmet spread. Their opinions immediately unleash the lunatic in Sarah. Or perhaps she was always coming over to detonate some bourgeois domesticity. Perhaps she’s set off by Tom’s worrying views about the death of theatre and the powerlessness of artists, or maybe it’s his hand under the table. Whatever the case, something sets her off and she decides to show them all just how much power a good actress has in her arsenal.
I want to sleep with Tom Stoppard is the new play from Toby Schmitz.
‘The lunatic, the lover, and the poet/ Are of imaginational compact’ (A Midsummer Night’s Dream)
