The Golden Goose Theatre is reviving classic Australian drama Strangers in Between by Tommy Murphy, which looks at the highs and lows of growing up gay in modern Australia.

The play stars Australian diving champion Matthew Mitcham, alongside Stephen Connery-Brown and Alex Ansdell.

Matthew Mitcham made headlines in 2008 as the first openly gay athlete to win an Olympic gold medal.

In the play, Shane flees his family and finds himself in Sydney’s Kings Cross, as he attempts to build a new life and surrogate family in the city.

Alex Ansdell (Shane) is making his professional debut.

Directed by Adam Spreadbury-Maher and designed by David Shields, Strangers in Between runs at the Golden Goose Theatre from 19 September to 7 October 2023.

More about the cast

Matthew Mitcham (Ben/Will) is a retired Australian diver and trampolinist, born in Brisbane. At the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, Matthew executed a two-and-one-half somersault with two-and-one-half twists in the pike position for his final dive, scoring four 10s, giving him not only the highest score on a single dive ever, but the gold medal – the first openly gay athlete to win an Olympic gold medal. He wrote his autobiography, ‘Twists and Turns’, in 2012, adapting it into a cabaret show, that toured Australia to great reviews (the Australian Stage said he was “a born performer who soon has the audience eating out of his hand. …an utterly charming character”). Matthew was in the TV series ‘The Pool’, and came second on the Australian version of ‘Dancing With the Stars’. He was also in the film ‘We All Lie My Darlings’.

Stephen Connery-Brown (Peter) was born and raised in Sydney. This is Stephen’s fourth time playing Peter in ‘Strangers in Between’ (King’s Head Theatre/Trafalgar Studios 2). His other roles include Dad in ‘The Sum of Us’ (Above the Stag), Henry Higgins in ‘Pygmalion’ and ‘Scrooge’ in ‘A Christmas Carol’
(both European tours).

Alex Ansdell (Shane) is making his professional debut.
