The Street presents the world premiere of Cathy Petocz's Where I End & You Begin. Light years apart, two private detectives search for missing persons among doppelgängers, impersonators and monstrous stand-ins. Everyone struggles to know where they end and someone else begins. Set in a double-universe where truth can only be found when nothing makes sense, Where I End & You Begin is two plays in the same space about the search for self and the complications of relationships.
Directed by The Street’s Artistic Director, Caroline Stacey, the world premiere season will be presented on the stage of Street One with a giant catwalk as the performance site.

A small, though excitable crowd gathered at UC Refectory on Saturday night to see one of the 90s most talented and tempestuous stars take the stage. It could be none other than Ms Courtney Love. What the Hell would happen tonight? After a storming warm-up set from Melbourne’s The Mercy Kills, the beer queue formed, while a range of tiara-and Doc-Marten-wearing ladies pressed themselves up against the barriers in anticipation of the grunge goddess’ appearance.
