Jekyll and Hyde

Anthony Warlow could sing binary code and it would be a delight but the man deserves as much praise for being a profoundly good character actor as he does for the joy of his voice.

Ragtime | The Production Company

As its final show in our gorgeous State Theatre, The Production Company offers Melbourne a truly wonderful and benevolent parting gift in Ragtime.

Thigh Gap | La Mama

If you’ve ever wondered what women really do behind closed doors, then look no further than Thigh GapJamaica Zuanetti’s absurdist comedy is an uncomfortably relatable production, in which two 20 something women reveal all the “secret women’s business” the ladies have been concealing.

White Pearl | National Theatre of Parramatta/Sydney Theatre Company

For a first play this is not short on ambition, tackling not only racism from an underrepresented angle, but also classism, misogyny, cultural specificity in a globalised marketplace, corporate culture, and the currency of outrage in the social media age.

The Glad Tomorrow | Katie Noonan and the Australian String Quartet

For those of us who were there, down to every man, woman and child, this was a performance that will linger long into our lives.
