Robert Gaetano as Tony in Kiss Me Like You Mean It

Manchester. 3am. A hot, midsummer night, and the party to end all party’s rages on. In the back garden Tony and Ruth meet, thanks to a stolen can of beer. Next door, Don and Edie are having a party of their own. As the night progresses, love is definitely in the air – but then so is the smell of cheap lager. And even cheaper aftershave…

From 13 – 23 February, MARC Up Productions proudly present the Melbourne premiere of KISS ME LIKE YOU MEAN IT at The Owl and The Pussycat in Richmond. Written by Chris Chibnall (Life on Mars, Spooks, Torch- wood, Dr. Who), this fast-paced, quirky comedy follows two couples through early morning to sunrise, showing just what the true meaning of love is.

“Chris Chibnall’s KISS ME LIKE YOU MEAN IT is a hybrid, a cross between bittersweet romance and sexy black comedy” (London Evening Standard)

MARC Up Productions are a new theatre-making partnership based in Melbourne between, Carly Shaw and Robert Gaetano. Shortlisted for the Meyer-Whitworth Award, KISS ME LIKE YOU MEAN IT will be the company’s first production and stars Kirk Alexander, Robert Gaetano, Carrie Moczynski and Chloe Reid.
