The Comedy of Errors | Pop-up Globe

Highly energetic, frenetically so at times, and with the slapstick factor dialled up to eleven, The Comedy of Errors is possibly the most perfect play to showcase this extraordinary performance venue.

Macbeth | Pop-up Globe

Thunder and lightning, blood and piss, laughs and screams, and the flash and clash of steel, this was an altogether new feast for the senses in its boldly theatrical use of this wonderful performance space.

Kilter | One Fell Swoop

Summoning tension, gasps and applause this perilous playground rocks with elegant harmonious symmetry alongside a toybox of other acrobatic devices only the brave and trained would dare to mess with.

Tomfoolery – The Words and Music of Tom Lehrer

In 1980, a young Cameron Mackintosh created a revue of Lehrer’s work and Tomfoolery has enjoyed more than 200 productions since.

Accidental Death of an Anarchist | Sydney Theatre Company

The action is driven by the madcap meddling of “The Maniac”, a role the incomparably oddball Amber McMahon seems born to play. Imagine a kind of brilliant trickster character who is a manic cross between the Joker, Sherlock Holmes and Bugs Bunny.
