    Steve Rodgers: Trust Fall

    Steve Rodgers: Trust Fall

    Steve Rodgers is the the kind of guy you root for: earnest, eager, and with a cheeky genuine grin. He lands a role alongside Hugo Weaving - yes, the Hugo Weaving.

    And in an open rehearsal for the media the cast begin doing trust falls. You know, that exercise where your partner catches you? Steve's paired up with Hugo, and let's just say things don't go to plan. A disaster, all in front of cameras, journalists, the works.

    Recorded live at Barefaced Stories, the theme of the night was Fall From Grace.
