Sex, sex, sex ... and celebrity. Not all storytelling is about charming fables and whimsical yarns. This is an adults-only night of fantastical tales where anything goes. Four writers each write a short piece of smut about a celebrity or fictional character, which they then read in public. A crowd favourite and an unstoppable cultural phenomenon, Erotic Fan Fiction returns to Melbourne for another filthy instalment. Come hear brand new shocking and shameful stories from Noni Hazlehurst (Little Fish, Playschool), Elmo Keep (Hungry Beast, Meanjin), Richard Higgins and Ben Pobjie. Hosted by the irrepressible Eddie Sharp.
