Galleon Theatre Group is proudly presenting the Australian premiere of 'Sex Cells'.

Written by Anna Longaretti and Directed by Warren McKenzie, 'Sex Cells' is a very funny, poignant play about motherhood, friendship, love and loss.


Set in a busy call centre, the four female employees of Aphrodite, a sex toy manufacturer, take telephone orders for Teasey Maids, Titivators and rotating pearl g-strings. Beneath the cheerful customer service and easy banter, however, these very different women nurse their own desires and disappointments.

Sylvie is desperate to have a baby, but her single-minded approach is taking its toll on her marriage and causing friction with her co-workers.
With five children, Janice rarely finds time for herself or her husband.

Tiffany is young and single, looking for 'the one', but wary of sacrificing her independence.

Star employee Lily, meanwhile, is stuck in a loveless marriage and estranged from her son, but buries her pain in wisecracks and work.

Their gentle and innocent manager Mr Causeway attempts to diffuse the tension between his staff while suppressing a longstanding crush on the oblivious Lily.


'Sex Cells' features an ensemble cast, including Lesley Reed, Anita Canala, Heather Riley, Laura Antoniazzi and Brian Godfrey.

  • Thursday 19th May 2016 to Saturday 21st May 2016 - 8.00pm
