Bumming With Jane
By Tahli Corin

Presented by Hannah Catherine Productions


Patrick and Jane are madly in love, madly in lust and occasionally just plain mad. All their furniture except the couch has been sold to the pawnbroker, they live on a diet of cheap wine, baked beans and whatever they can find in the dumpsters behind the local supermarket. They take it in turns to hold down a part-time job. Life is great. But nothing lasts.

Inspired by the poetry of Charles Bukowski and the modern Australian city, Bumming With Jane is about love, poverty and the fleeting joy of choosing to live a free and ragged-arse life.

Due to the current climate strict Covid restrictions will be in place, please follow all rules on density, social distancing and follow directions from staff.

This is a Masked Event, please help reduce waste by bringing your own mask.
