Sex Object

Depot Theatre

Marrickville

April 23, 3017

 

As per its mission statement, Depot Theatre, nestled in the vibrant Addison Road Centre and the arts scene of Sydney suburb Marrickville, aims to entertain, challenge and inspire audiences with performances that are accessible, affordable and – most importantly – a fun night out.

They collaborate with and host an eclectic range of emerging and established independent theatre makers and cultural organisations to stage a wide range of though-provoking Australian and international works and thereby support hundreds of independent arts practitioners in the areas of performance, directing and production design and management.

Presented by JackRabbit Theatre, character driven play Sex Object is, as the title suggests, up-and-coming writer Charlie Falkner’s take on sex – the sex of self-absorbed Millennials in the era vulgaris of social media, where everyone can be famous for 15 people.

JackRabbit Theatre is not unknown for its faible for loud, fast, pacey dialogue and a tongue firmly placed in cheek – a red thread that continues with Sex Object and its cringingly familiar stereotypical characters, be it the beautiful blonde, the new age artist or the overly confident, flamboyant narcissist.

The ensemble works well together, which is testament to the team director Michael Abercrombie and Charlie Falkner have become with their second collaboration after Dirty People.

Overall, Sex Object is an enjoyable play yet could have used a bit of editing as it takes its time to get into gear and connect the dots, which can leave an audience wondering through its lagged midway section where it is all headed instead of focusing on the fast and fun play in the moment.
