The Fertility of Objects


Have you ever looked deeply into the eyes of your obsession and sworn you would do anything to possess it? Two performers stand before a great shiny object of desire for which they will do or sacrifice anything.

"Fertility Of Objects — better described as a dried blood burlesque than a black comedy — reinforces my initial impression that Cortese is an outstanding new dramatist."

Chris Boyd, Herald Sun

"Fertility Of Objects is a sharp reminder of everything theatre should be. Truthful, entertaining, honest and thought provoking. More please."

C E C Busby, Theatre Reviews
