Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta presents

There’s something charismatic and enigmatic about Steven. From his mother, to his wife, father and ex, they all desperately seek his approval, want his company, want to be the one in his life, yet he remains elusive.
This delightful music comedy sees four characters sharing intimate details about their life with Steven, what they want to tell him. A picture of Steven emerges from their longings to be with him. But Steven has his own secrets…

The Things I Could Never Tell Steven, by composer Jye Bryant has been performed around the world. Jye and his talent are currently a Western Sydney secret, that we don’t think will be a secret for much longer.
