15-18 JUNE, I (HONESTLY) LOVE YOU, 7.30pm, Subiaco Arts Centre, Subiaco (WA)
Two people who can only tell the truth at all times fall in love. These reluctant protagonists are burdened with the truth-telling disease vitiositas veritas. Everything seems to be going… sort of well at the start. Hesitant first dates, a disappointing initial sexual encounter, are some trials they must endure all under duress of brutal honesty.

In Francis Ford Coppola's 1975 ground-breaking film The Godfather, the head of a prize horse is savagely cut off and placed in the bed of a hotshot Hollywood film director for the refusal of a favour... ever thought about the two guys that had to put it there?
1 July – Ceduna, 2 July – Streaky, 5 July – Roxby, 6 July – Port Augusta, 8 July – Marion and 9 July – Keith.

These two critically acclaimed Lockwood Productions tour regional WA.
1 Sep – Esperance, 3 Sep – Kalgoorlie, 17 Sep – Geraldton.

15 SEPTEMBER, I (HONESTLY) LOVE YOU, Don Russell Performing Arts Centre (WA)
