Stories Like These
in association with bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company presents


by Phil Porter

9 February – 4 March 2017

“Love is not a cast-iron set of symptoms. Love is whatever you feel it to be.”

This is the tale of Jonah, Sophie, and a fox called Scruffilitis. It’s a true story, and it’s a love story. A quirky, dysfunctional, voyeuristic love story, but a love story all the same.

Sophie is worried that she is disappearing. Jonah is very good at keeping watch. With the help of a WiFi baby monitor, the worlds of two lonely individuals collide in the most unconventional ways, and a delicately moving and darkly funny story unfolds before your eyes.

“Recommended. Terrific” – John McCallum

“a sensitively acted and fully fleshed production… an inventive design… a very rewarding little show, one that speaks volumes about the age-old guilty pleasures of voyeurism and the very contemporary issues that spill from physically disconnected but digitally intimate relationships.” – Jason Blake

“This is a gentle, touching play that is a reprieve from the bleak themes and troubled characters that people so much theatre and cinema. Phil Porter’s scenes are delicately crafted, his characters tenderly developed… a sensitive, compelling production… ” Stage Whispers

“Blink is a work of fantasy that magnifies the experience of infatuation, to sometimes inappropriate levels of obsession… imaginatively conceived… charming.”Suzy Goes See

“a generous-spirited meditation on the nature of love… Very funny, utterly charming and deeply thought provoking… beautifully pitched performances.”Theatre Red

“intricately constructed and executed so well I’d see it again…. Blink is brilliant and just makes you want to believe in true love all over again.” –  The Plus Ones

“whimsical and way off-centre… Director, Luke Rogers has embraced this story with a great love of detail and guides his two actors into giving deeply committed performances… a contemporary fairytale, observant of ‘outsiders’ existing through co-incidence and good fortune in the harsh reality of the world most of us live in… an hour or so of gentle escapism. An unusual ‘present’ on a Sydney stage from an aptly named Independent theatre company called Stories Like These… Stories like this, indeed – delightfully weird.”Kevin Jackson
