Screening at The Odyssey in preparation for the Arena's stage performance in early May - which stars two of The Odyssey's fabulous staff members! - come for what is set to be a fantastic evening.
Make sure to get your seats on time for a very special pre-film introduction!

This Aussie comedy features three actors best known for uber-masculine roles – Terence Stamp, Hugo Weaving and Guy Pearce – as drag queens on a journey across the Australian outback.

Stamp plays a grieving trans woman, Weaving a gay man hoping to connect with his son after years apart, and Pearce as an overconfident and often obnoxious upstart. Their journey is soundtracked by Abba, and the script is packed with quotable oneliners.


Despite its political incorrectness and bawdiness of spirit, the film’s confrontation of homophobia is powerfully handled, from Pearce’s character narrowly avoiding being beaten up to his fitting response to some anti-gay graffiti, which he simply paints bright pink.

The amazing costumes won an Oscar, and the film spawned a successful stage musical.
