A Kink in the Tale embraces diverse, sex-positive, and inclusive stories told live on stage.
Join us Thursday 7th March for the International Women’s Week edition of ‘A Kink in The Tale’: Live Storytelling for Grownups. This month’s event is a special one, featuring an all female, 100% local lineup celebrating our diversity, resilience and sexuality live on stage.
Our special guests, Nadia Townsend, Caroline Anne Butt, and Catherin J Pascal Dunk explore the themes of movie sex under the male gaze, innocence lost, kink and sensuality with honesty, insight and humour alongside your host, Donné Restom.
Make sure to book your tickets early this month, because this month’s ‘A Kink in the Tale’ will sell quickly!
This event is open to all who appreciate a good bedtime story with a twist. Get ready to laugh, gasp, blush and cry all at the same time. And remember, respect, consent, non-judgment and an open heart will make you a better lover – and the best kind of listener.

Caroline Anne Butt was born in Sydney in 1944. She was a highly religious, innocent and nerdy girl. She grew up on Sydney’s Lower North Shore, in a non-affluent, stable and loving home. She’s been a Share Clerk, school teacher, tutor, painter, researcher and writer. Her published works have been an eclectic mix: writing for children, magazine articles, multimedia CDs, Life Writing, short stories. Her first memoir, Pumpkin, was published in 2019 and she’s just finished her second memoir, The Steering Wheel. She experienced power and powerlessness in family, religious and patriarchal settings and continues to question their foundations. While she’s found her own true north, she knows that, even then, tides always turn.
Catherin J Pascal Dunk is a poet, yarnbomber and book editor from right here on the Central Coast.
She’s wanted to be a ‘famous author’ since forever, but is still working on it.
She’s been published in ‘Sappho Queers Anthology’, Melbourne poetry zine, ‘LOUD MOUTH’ and in the Florida-based online magazine, ‘Edge of Humanity’.
You can find her work on her poetry blog Wordflower. Where she publishes her own work and that of selected, fabulous guest poets.
Enjoy delicious Colombian Street food from The Empanada Bar, and cocktail (or mocktail) while you sit back and enjoy the show!
Long time lover of eroticism, irreverence, and saying out loud the things that make you blush. Donné was the sex advice columnist for Ralf magazine’s horny teens in her twenties, and the sex writer for the confused and exhausted mums of Kidspot in her thirties. She is the host of Words on the Waves’ ‘Late Night Lit’, and her erotic blueprint is The Shapeshifter: Loves all the sex, all time, all the ways, with all the people. And yes, she has the stories to prove it.
