Welcome to Kiss & Go, a Melbourne-based production house run by husband-and-wife team, Fiona Harris and Mike McLeish. Fiona & Mike decided that being married and having two kids just wasn’t fulfilling or chaotic enough, so they made the decision to also become creative collaborators.
At Kiss & Go, our mission is simple: Make Good Stuff With Good People.
We are creators, writers, producers, performers and collaborators who make original, contemporary content for stages and screens of all sizes.
