As part of the 2018 Mardi Gras Festival, Invisible Wall Productions and Sugary Rum Productions in association with Hayes Theatre Co are staging the Australian Premiere of the hit Off-Broadway musical, The View UpStairs. This provocative new musical, written by Max Vernon, is being performed at Hayes Theatre Co from 8 February.

The View UpStairs draws you inside the UpStairs Lounge, a vibrant ’70s gay bar in the French Quarter of New Orleans. This forgotten community comes to life in all its gritty, glam rock glory when Wes, a young fashion designer from 2017, buys the abandoned space, setting off an exhilarating journey of seduction and self-exploration that spans two generations of queer history. While Wes gets to know the joys and struggles of this exuberant and flamboyant community, he too learns about his place in the world.

The View UpStairs is inspired by one of the U.S.A’s most significant yet all-but-ignored arson attacks that killed 32
people in The UpStairs Lounge, a sanctuary for the gay and lesbian community from a hostile outside world. It
examines what has been gained and lost in the fight for equality, and how the past can help guide all of us through
an uncertain future

Competition closes Feb 4, 2018 at 6pm AEST. Winners will be contacted via email/phone.
