Peter Goers in Assoc. with Holden Street Theatres Presents

Peter Goers in 'Actors, Drunks and Babies Never Hurt Themselves'

A witty, urbane celebration of show business. Celebrated raconteur and theatrical Peter Goers tells yarns about his own nearly 50 years in the theatre and stories about luminaries such as Frank Thring, Barry Humphries, Ethel Merman, Gladys Moncrieff, “The Sheik of Scrubby Creek” Chad Morgan, Groucho Marx, dead critics and Princess Margaret and the Silver City of Broken Hill thrown in for good measure. Once the Orson Welles of Grade 5 at Woodville Primary School, Goers tells all in a brisk, funny 50 minutes.

Please Note: This show does not involve Canadian nouveau circus performers, croquet, comedians who really hate Adelaide trying out material for the Melbourne Comedy Festival and any audience participation beyond laughter.
