ALIBI (OR SOMEPLACE ELSE) is a play for a society in crisis. His most confessional piece, it is also Willing’s most dishonest, for the central concern is the magnetism of the theatrical lie in a world that is done with truth.


Stars in his eyes, a derelict aging twink moves to London on a theatrical whim. Chaos ensues, his life becoming an intoxicating vortex of sex, drugs, and deceit.

His gateway to this treacherous world is the mysterious PC, an international man of mystery, a money launderer, and a fraud. He promises fame but delivers breakdown.

Meanwhile, the people are revolting, on a scale we’ve never witnessed before, and it is his relationship with Nick, the young revolutionary, that just might save him.

"A tour-de-force of writing and performance." - The Australian

‘Theatrically offbeat and fantastically diverse, Willing is a one-man groove factory who is just as at home crafting mock glam jams as he is pouring his flawless falsetto over an ocean of synths... his genius lies in his uncanny ability to balance restraint and excess, never sacrificing true musicianship over shallow one-hit-wonders.’ - the Soundcheck


 This recording was made on the land of the Wurundjeri People. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
