Effie In Love Me Tinder

Finding love isn’t easy and keeping it is even harder!

Everyone’s favourite gregarious Greek goddess Effie (the colourful comic creation of Acropolis Now’s big-haired, break-out star Mary Coustas) is going back on the road with her latest show Effie in Love Me Tinder in 2020.

Mary studied at Deakin University and can’t wait to come back to Geelong to perform for the first time at Geelong Arts Centre! On the back of a successful tour wowing full-house crowds from the Blue Mountains to Wollongong and everywhere in between, it seems only right that the rest of the nation gets a chance to see this Logie award winning living legend up close and very personal!

After a sold-out national tour of Star Wogs in 2018 and two national tours in 2016 & 2017 of her critically acclaimed one-woman show: Effie the Virgin Bride, this new show sees Effie holding up a mirror to the complexities of finding love and keeping it in the modern age of digital dating.

Newly married to her beloved Shane Bradley Cooper, Effie is experiencing what she calls the seventh-month itch. The urge to swipe right is tempting even to those with the greatest of willpower. Who isn’t on Tinder? Is it possible to be smokin’ hot and hit upon every day and still stay faithful? Is it love at first sight or love at first swipe? If I had you at hello then why can’t I get rid of you at goodbye? If love don’t cost a thing then why is divorce so expensive?

“Everywhere I go men are sniffing around me like beagles at an airport," she says. "I’m trying to control my animal urges, but this inner beast, this vulvarine has taken hold of me!”

Don't miss an opportunity to laugh out loud along to Effie's Tinder tales live on stage!
