Letter from Letters of Complaint at Late Night LibraryHere’s a fun new show I’m doing at Customs House Library on Thursday 29 September.

It’s called Letters of Complaint, and is based on real complaint letters sent to the City of Sydney in the 1800s. With comedy! I play the Inspector of Nuisances, Richard Seymour (real job title, real person), and get to work with the wonderful performers George Kemp, Anna Martin, and Maeve Marsden. Hope you can make it. It’s free!


Thursday 29 September, 8pm-9pm
Late Night Library: Letters of Complaint – AGAIN!

Join some of Sydney’s leading comedians as they share the best, worst and most bizarre letters of complaint from the deep recesses of the City of Sydney archives. From a noisy sausage machine, to the bothersome smell of boiling tripe, this Late Night Library event indulges in a long list of comical neighbourly gripes.

Settle in to the Customs House Reading Room and rediscover Sydney’s history in the words of those who lived in here.

Presented by Creative City Sydney, City of Sydney Library and blackcat productions
