It’s evening and four young people find themselves fumbling through one of Western culture’s remaining rituals, congregating at a neighbourhood bar.

Porto, by Brooklyn playwright Kate Benson, is a modern day slice of life play exploring the contemporary stories of our shifting urban culture, that will premiere in Australia at The Blue Room Theatre from 18 October to 5 November.

Among the group in the bar is Porto; a modern woman, who with her usual order of a glass of red, strives to embody those monumental values of individualism and independence. Still, somehow, she also finds herself longing for a connection and a sense of community that seems to have disappeared.

This one-act play delves into some of the deeper questions plaguing our society. How do we seek to satisfy our basic desires for sustenance and intimacy in an often alienating urban landscape? How do we love again after traumatising heartbreak and how do we move forward knowing the terrible potential of doing so? We all want love, sex, good food: but is it possible to enjoy sausage once it is known how it is made?

Porto is an exploration of theatrical form. Grounded in comedic timing, characterisation, and continuing questions, this is the first production of the work and an Australian premiere. Kate Benson is an independent theatre artist who resides in Brooklyn, New York. Directed by Lisa Louttit, this is Lisa's first work in Western Australia having just recently moved here.
