Most read reviews

Mark Colvin’s Kidney | The Drill Hall Theatre Company

How many of life’s hiccups are triggered by a series of events, out of our control, on their own trajectory to wherever they may land? One only has to watch the news – politics and mayhem – to see what can (and does) occur without any rhyme or reason.

Tick Tick Boom | subtlenuance

Over the past decade, the Sydney based theatre company, subtlenuance, has been an indispensable and vibrant part of the independent theatre landscape, dedicated solely to the creation of new work.

The Feather in the Web | Griffin Theatre Company

Another feather in the cap for playwright, Nick Coyle, The Feather In The Web flaps, floats and flies around the turbulent and treacherous cross currents of obsession and unrequited love.

Suddenly Last Summer | Red Stitch Theatre

Suddenly Last Summer is a study of the extraordinary lengths some will go to in order to shut down truth and is layered with graphic brutal allegory.

Evie May – A Tivoli Story | Hayes Theatre and New Musicals Australia

There are a lot of clichés you could toss at Evie May – A Tivoli Story, but this show rises above them to deliver an entertaining and moving show that embraces its inherent melodrama and theatricality, and is all the better for it.
