An ageing shop owner, a savvy twenty-something, a jaded drag queen and a straight Inner West couple spend an evening in an adult store.

Once a haven for Sydney’s lost souls, today “French Letters” is an adult store in decline. Sales are down, gentrification is up, and store owner Robbie is on the verge of selling to developers. Thrust together one evening, a band of unlikely friends discover that they may have more in common than it first appears (ulterior motives aside). Sometimes it takes stepping outside of your comfort zone to find the community you’ve been looking for.

The world premiere of French Letters and Leather Cleaner explores the commodification of queer spaces without taking itself too seriously. This is a farce, after all.

Developed through Fruit Box Theatre’s RIPE Development Program and presented during Sydney WorldPride in association with bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company.
