Featuring Zach Goldfinch, Jacob Barn and Kailesh Reitmens
Produced by Kyle Stephens
On Saturday we will be joined by the Beat Bang Theory.
Days of our Life is a fun, humorous cabaret that explores the sexual ambiguity between two close male friends (played by Zach Goldfinch and Jacob Barn).
There is an underlying sexual tension between these two friends that is hilariously awkward to watch, leaving many to think that there is something more between them then the innocent bromance they present.
Accompanied by Kailesh Reitmans, and produced by Kyle Stephens and Kore Productions, this promises to be an entertaining night out at the theatre!
