Written on the streets of Paris, this new Australian monologue takes the audience on a journey into the darkest corners of the seedy urban Paris underworld. From the banks of the Seine river to the tucked-away all-night sleazy clubs, this acclaimed and now widely toured poetic piece is about a man living on the very edge...

"A powerful play... a stunning performance... Shakespearean in magnitude."
—The Sunday Times, Perth

"A work of intense beauty and insight...House succeeds brilliantly."
—db Magazine, Adelaide

"...the script is unpretentiously poetic, a surprisingly beautiful evocation of dark spaces and the fragments of fragile tenderness that survive in them..."
—Australian Stage

"Weird and wonderful, Appalling Behaviour knocks your socks off.”
—The Advertiser, South Australia

“An unflinching portrayal of the kind of character rarely seen onstage.”
—The Age
