Join Tim Ross and Kit Warhurst for their brand new live show, the follow up to their award winning Man About the House show. Step inside the original condition 1979 brutalist building –Art Gallery WA, for a nostalgic, thought provoking and funny exploration of Australian holidays of the past. Using story telling and song they will take you on a sentimental motel journey.
