Free Tix – Prehistoric

prehistoric freeI look at the torn up carpet, cabinets forced open, records strewn everywhere and I think – Good. F*** you. Try and stop us.

It's 1979 in Brisbane, Australia, and Deb, Nick, Pete and Rachel meet at a gig, start a band, and find out - the hard way - why their town stays so quiet.

Based on first-hand accounts of living, playing music, and making history under Queensland’s notoriously corrupt and brutal Bjelke-Petersen government, Prehistoric offers an iconoclastic and hilarious take on the pivotal "punk moment" that still echoes today.

Returning for a very limited season this July at Melbourne's Meat Market and thumping with an original soundtrack played live, Prehistoric is a blistering punk theatre gig about our civil liberties, and our capacity to resist.

Elbow Room are an award-winning Melbourne-based theatre company committed to the development of the craft of writing and performance making, in order to test and strengthen the relationship between art and society, and the capacity of that relationship to create change. They are renowned for their intellectual and artistic integrity and considered one of the leading independent theatre companies in Australia.

"Exhilarating, gut-wrenching, evocative… leaves you giddy with excitement and feeling utterly alive." Richard Watts (Artshub/Triple R)
“An outstanding play... as raw as the punk rebellion that it documents... perfectly crafted [and] rendered with such clarity, always balanced against the awareness of futility... you can't ask for more from any production." The Australian

Merciless Gods | Little Ones Theatre

Arty Graphic Intense Funny Tragic Relentless and very very good.

The Lady in The Van | Melbourne Theatre Company

Bennett has always acknowledged that his garden guest Miss Shepherd, provided him with a wealth of material, but it is the analysis of his own part in this absurd situation that makes the story so compelling.

My Night With Reg | new theatre

My Night With Reg by Kevin Elyot is somewhat of a relic, a play about the plague years of the AIDS epidemic structured like a drawing room comedy of an even earlier era.

Comma Sutra | Louisa Fitzhardinge

It’s easy to imagine self-confessed grammar nerd Fitzhardinge, as the odd one out in the popular girls group at school.

Dr Felicity Rickshaw's Celebrity Sex Party | Holland St Productions

There is no question about the talents of this small ensemble, their voices and choral work are excellent and the writing is cleverly witty and extremely funny.
