Best show in the Adelaide Fringe 2006, The Advertiser

“the production is riveting… Dana Miltins and Hannah Norris balance cynical world-weariness with girlish intimacy in dazzling characterisations”
**** Samela Harris, The Advertiser

“Hannah Norris excellent as the heartsick Simone”
Murray Bramwell, The Adelaide Review

When Yvonne and Simone go cruising for action, the first stop is the Bar Phoenix in the heart of Camden Town. Barney the Bartender has seen everything and knows how to keep out of trouble. Gil is a kid with a three-year grudge who can’t keep his mouth shut. And then there’s Raymond LeGendre… Oh. My. Goodness.

Been So Long, Che Walker’s tale of love, sex, rage and revenge, was premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 1998.

This Adelaide Fringe production had its first season in Melbourne at The Windsor Castle Hotel, June 2005 with the following cast changes – Raymond LeGendre | Robert Jordan and Barney | Syd Brisbane.
