Formed in 2009, Quite Sensible is made up of graduates of Victoria University's Theatre programme. their debut show Technology Cried was a colourful, physical celebration of the Red Mole Theatre company. "We as human beings love a good story, and I wanted to explore the impact of stories on our lives," says director Brooke Smith-Harris. "Connection and communication are crucial elements of both life and storytelling, and in Irrepressible Urge we explore these elements through heartfelt performances and recognisable characters." Irrepressible Urge promises to continue Quite Sensible's tradition of vibrant, charismatic Theatre.

        Irrepressible Urge

Irrepressible Urge

What would humanity be without stories? From imaginary friends to world-changing news; old wives' tales to religious texts, the irrepressible human urge to tell stories is inescapable. In Irrepressible Urge, four tales entwine, exploring different aspects of storytelling. A princess and a dragon form a bond over a cup of tea. A voyeur takes pleasure from the stories surrounding him. Two strangers realise the impact of the past; while a family struggle to determine their roles in their own life stories. Quite Sensible has created a piece of theatre which explores the actors' medium of storytelling and investigates our global dependence on stories. By observing how stories teach us about our world, we understand that, no matter what the medium or the situation, every event in every person's life is influenced by and creates a story. Irrepressible Urge allows the audience to indulge in their instinctive curiosity about others.
