5 Reasons You're Going To Want To See 44 Sex Acts In One Week

'44 Sex Acts In One Week'
Our eclectic team of writers from around Australia – and a couple beyond – with decades of combined experience and interest in all fields.

The apocalyptic rom-com and smash-hit of Sydney Festival is finally hitting Brisbane.

'44 Sex Acts In One Week' comes from the razor-sharp pen of Playwright David Finnigan. Four hilarious actors will go down on their microphones, mangoes and melons. . . All in response to humanity's decisions to go harder toward the end of the world as we know it.

Journalist Celina is given the task of roadtesting a new book, 'The 44 Sex Acts That Will Change Your Life', and the only person available to 'help' her. . . Is her sworn enemy. Maybe all the extra friction will strike some real sparks.

Girl meets boy. Girl hates boy. Girl f...s boy, 44 times. World collapses. Is that enough to tantalise you?

Without further ado, to tease just a little bit more, here are five reasons you simply can't miss '44 Sex Acts In One Week', playing as part of Brisbane Comedy Festival.


It stars extra funny people! Four of Australia’s finest comic actors, Amber McMahon, Aaron Tsindos, Nancy Dennis and Rebecca Massey. Seriously funny folk at the top of their game, going down on fruit.


It’s a razor-sharp script from playwright provocateur David Finnigan. We are talking an audaciously fabulous script which is a loving homage to classic rom-coms, set during the very final days of late-stage capitalism – a moment when intergenerational feminism and the climate crisis collide in unexpected ways to bring about a sweaty, hilarious, surprisingly heartfelt apocalypse.


For the staging and sonic inventiveness: just close your eyes (if you must), have your ears felt up by foley effects, and wonder what it might be like to peg someone in a camping supplies store at 10am on a Wednesday.


It supports the Eat Local movement and our local Queensland fruit growers. We all know how important it is for mother earth to lower our food miles, this show exemplifies the movement like no other, AND it celebrates new ways to use fruit, like how to make a watermelon sound like sex!


It’s a WILD experience! It’s fruity. Celebratory. Audacious. Delicious. SEXY. Full-stop.

'44 Sex Acts In One Week' plays Brisbane Powerhouse (Brisbane Comedy Festival) 16-25 May.
