Past Event

Stay in. Stay sexy. Prepare for an intimate audio experience delivered directly to your phone.

World Premiere

Keep your tracksuit on but get ready to feel a little hot under the elastic! The Good Room has hopped into bed with Benjamin Law, Krissy Kneen, and Mandy Beaumont to deliver three intimate audio experiences directly to your phone. 

Performed by some of Brisbane’s finest vocal artists, these steamy, tongue-in-cheek stories will provide a little literary release on a Wednesday night.  

It’s The Good Room in your bedroom – what’s not to love? 

Cut or Uncut (Wed 23 Sept) - Hurry limited tickets remain

Benjamin Law

It’s been a long time between cuts.

It’s been a long time between butts.

But that’s all about to change.

In this erotic queer fantasy, bum-parts and slick-backs take on a whole new meaning, as sudden desire gets the Supercuts treatment. An after-hours hairdressing and pants-raising good time, this story will tussle your locks and leave you totally shagged.

My Little Bird (Wed 9 Sept) 

Mandy Beaumont

Press 1 for Foot Fetishes. Press 2 for Big Girls. Press 3 for Nasty Women. If you’d like to speak to Mistress Catherine, then press 4 and ask very, very nicely if she will allow you to chat to her.

In an old Queenslander in West End, a woman takes calls every night. The strangers on the other end of the receiver mostly want her to whisper sweet, sweaty nothings down the line. But this evening, there is a new caller - a young man who wants her to be in control, a young man who likes to feel trapped, a young man who is a lot closer than he initially seems. In this hot and humid suburban fantasy, two people will put their hang-ups on hold as control and discipline find surprising release.

Do Us Part (Wed 16 Sept)

Krissy Kneen

I press my knees together. There is a pop and fizzle in the air. An electricity.

I can feel it lifting my grey curls off my shoulder as if at the coming of a storm.


In the space between regulation and desire, Delores waits and waits. And at her age: every - minute - counts.

Trapped in a retirement home, she’s planning a highly-charged covert reunion with her swarthy husband, Ivan. This erotic and rebellious story of yearning, marriage and sex (at a distance) will ravage your ears and your heart.
