Often I Find That I Am Naked

Brisbane audiences are getting a second chance to laugh, cringe and cry at the desperate-but-never-dateless antics of modern single gal Jezebel when Often I Find That I Am Naked returns to the Judith Wright Centre to complete a hugely successful national tour this October.

Theatregoers all over Australia have fallen in love with this Sex and the City meets Bridget Jones’ Diary cabaret comedy which (literally) exposes the perils, pitfalls and perverts of the dating game in the 21st century. According to producer and lead actor Jo Thomas, women and indeed, many men, have responded to the combination of hilarity and honesty that is at the heart of Often I Find That I Am Naked.

“I’ve met loads of locals, from Kalgoorlie to Canberra, while performing the show and I can safely say that Jezebel is far from alone in her dreams of finding perfect love, while often waking to the reality of being hung over, naked and

alone in a stranger’s bed… or bathtub,” says Jo.

“Countless Australians have got their careers on track, but are finding their love lives are off the rails in this era of sexting, speed-dating and social media. But what else is there to do sometimes than pour another cocktail, pop on a

fabulous frock and get back out there?”

After beginning life as part of Metro Arts’ FreeRange program, the Jo & Co production of Fiona Sprott’s Often I Find That I Am Naked premiered at the Judith Wright Centre in 2009 and through ongoing support from Arts Queensland, Critical Stages and Playing Australia has been performed to approximately 19,000 people in 48 venues nationally. Tickets are now on sale for the highly anticipated season at the Judith Wright Centre, with cabaret seating available.

“Set to a track of boppy 80’s favourites with live piano and vocal stylings, the script is fast, clever, funny and as honest as they come… The irresistible mix of twisted humour and starry-eyed optimism will leave you with something to laugh at and something to think about.”
