Special Event – Ruben Guthrie
The 1812 Theatre in conjunction with FizzWack Theatre Co.
Directed by Travis Handcock
Ruben Guthrie is on fire.
He’s 29, he’s the Creative Director of a cutting-edge advertising agency, he’s engaged to a Czech supermodel and Sydney is his oyster. He pours himself a drink to celebrate, a drink to work, a drink to sleep and one spectacular night he drinks so much he thinks he can fly.
Ruben Guthrie is Brendan Cowell’s brutally honest comedy about spiralling high, crashing hard and being taken to AA by your mum. The story of Ruben’s battle with the bottle is also the story of the city that won’t let him put it down.
