“Brilliant work…This is the reason you go to see live theatre.”

“This is theatre with great strength of purpose, and a technical achievement that will leave you gobsmacked. The Irresistible is simply irresistible.”

A reckless, intoxicating love letter to the subconscious.

The Irresistible is an exploration of the invisible and insidious nature of unconscious bias, told through multiple parallel narratives that intersect through mystery and sci-fi. Locations and time bleed into one another with dream-like fluidity as performers transition from one character to the next at breakneck-speed.

Deep in the gloom a phone rings. The voice on the line slips beneath her skin and curls its fingers around his stomach. You can’t see it, you can’t touch it, you can barely feel it. You can’t hold on tight enough.

A new work from Side Pony Productions (The Confidence Man, The Pride) and The Last Great Hunt (Falling through Clouds, The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer), The Irresistible is a reckless, intoxicating love letter to the subconscious.
