Join Tim and Kit Warhurst for their brand new live show, the follow up to their award winning Man About the House show, premiered to acclaim recently in Sydney. Step inside the original condition 1979 Brutalist building – Art Gallery WA, for a nostalgic, thought provoking and funny exploration of Australian brutal architecture and holidays of the past. Using storytelling and song they will take you on a sentimental motel journey.
