'Private Moments: A Double Bill' bears witness to two friends/colleagues/housemates grappling post-drama school blues by each writing a solo show.

Intimately combining comedy, drama and music, the double bill uncovers a series of private moments and reveals their own deep-seated insecurities.

First up is 'Semi Charmed', a cabaret exploring the subtext and vulnerability of finding love online. It promises to be an entertaining - and potentially educational - insight into the mind of a single, 20-something female Tinder user.

Followed by 'Buried At Sea', a play with music, inspired by the life of George Bradford and the journey his great, great nephew went on to resurface his life. How far can you reach into the past before you lose sight of the present?

The belly-laughing, chocolate eating, storytelling romantics, Sarah Clarke and Mark Selvestro, reveal their Top 5 most private moments:

Sarah: Being on an untelevised episode of 'The Bachelorette'.
Mark: To play Phryne Fisher's love interest on 'Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries'.
