FOR THE RECORD: TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART

Presented by For The Record and Metro Arts

The raw, real and ridiculous come together on this beloved Brisbane storytelling night.

Co-Captained by Siobhan Gibbs and Maja Hanna Liwszyc, prepare to be guided (lovingly and theatrically) through a night of true tales.

Six storytellers present a story from their lives, based on the theme, ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’.

Always heartfelt and often hilarious, FTR honours the raw, the real and the ridiculous.

“Any regular performance night can live or die on the hosting and luckily For the Record is in good hands with its Cheer Co-Captains. Their effortless banter and truly random segues alone would have me coming back month after month.”
