Peter Goers is Hard Rubbish

Peter Goers and Holden Street Theatres present


About the show

'Hard Rubbish' is the third in Peter Goers' trilogy of crap. A staple of the Adelaide Fringe and South Australian culture is back following his sold out performances 'Actors, Drunks and Babies Never Hurt Themselves' and 'Smoked Ham', which garnered five star reviews and critical acclaim.

This year Goers' is here to talk about Adelaide, show business and everything in between in his trademark sardonic style. Promising to be a very nice show, particularly for the older generations, he ensures he will not be wearing lycra again. Don't miss out on a funny, mischevious and pogniant night out.
