Poly is an exploration into the lives of three women, who happen to find love in the same place. A beautiful journey into something new and something taboo. A show of vivacity, beauty and fascination that is not to be missed.
Poly follows the lives of Abbey, Nancy and Brooke who enter into a polyamorous relationship and strive to make it work. A show that endeavours to present our exploration and new found understanding of polyamory. The vast and complex world of the play is perhaps closer to you than you think. It aims to show people what a polyamorous relationship looks like and most importantly what it feels like.
Simply, it asks the question - can you fall in love with more than one person at a time?”
“With local writers putting together a script of utter perfection, the audiences are thrown from the moment the three women meet, to the moment they all fall in love, to the struggles of conflicting life goals. Taking you through moments of unimaginable heat and passion to cold longstanding despise, the scenes have no chronological order but make complete sense.”

Poly epitomised our vision as a company to explore a concept that is fresh to the Australian Stage. We were overwhelmed by the positive and supportive feedback from our patrons and the production still holds a special place in the company’s heart.
It is with great excitement that we announce that Poly will be returning in 2014 with the hopes of continuing the tour. It is part of our vision as a company to showcase Western Australian talent to the world and we could not be more proud to do so with this show. Discussions, planning and funding are all currently in the pipeline. Stay tuned, the ladies are back!
