With her chestnut hair bleached and shorn, her buckled boots and her ockerish banter with the audience and musicians, Katie Noonan woos us with ordinariness. But, as soon as the first notes are struck and she opens her mouth to sing, we know we are in the presence of the di...

Swallow | National Theatre of Parramatta

Disgraced | Sydney Theatre Company

Sat, 23 Apr 2016

Extra Ordinary | Frank Woodley

Thu, 21 Apr 2016

Some may nay say; a comedian trying to do Shakespeare is way to dusty death, but in the gifted, meandering, manic mechanics of this presentation, it moves like a maverick mystery tour, always surprising, never really knowing where it might snake to...

Private Lives | Balloon Head Theatre

Thu, 21 Apr 2016

This debut production by Balloon Head Theatre of Noel Coward's classic romantic comedy was also my first experience of the play, and although I know that it is produced regularly to mostly glowing reviews, and although I am a sucker for a good romcom, I can't say I'm a fan of the pl...

Reviews/Sydney
This presentation of the rock opera does not especially evoke the Summer of Love nor tonally invite its audience to tune in, turn on or drop out, and as a result the undisguised Christian thrust of the piece comes across all the more clearly.

The Pride is a striking production that speaks to us all about engaging in an authentic life and not playing at fancy dress.

Reviews/Perth
Cleverly incorporating grabs of soundtracks like Marvin Gaye’s Let’s Get it On and Am I Not Pretty Enough, the “ladies” progressed through the highs and mostly lows of partner seeking advice.

Reviews/Sydney
This particular production does not achieve the level of success that the writing – or indeed the festival – deserves. I wish they had entrusted it to someone else to stage.

Reviews/Sydney
Early on in Daniela Giorgi's The Poor Kitchen, Elle, is excited about the olive farm in Italy she has inherited. Not because she harbours any romantic “Under the Tuscan Sun” fantasies, but because she intends to sell it and use the dough to break into the Sydney real estate market.
