Christmas Proms 2017 | Adelaide Festival Centre

We were taken on a global journey starting with a Hebrew song well sung by Naomi and to such varied cultures as those from Guinea, Spain, America and West Africa.

Vale | State Theatre Company South Australia

How do you pronounce Vale? To rhyme with whale or to rhyme with Calais? It is the former, although argument rages about how it should be pronounced when it means goodbye.

Brideshead Revisited | Independent Theatre

It was a joyful, demanding, emotionally churning play that doesn’t go away at its end but leaves so much to think about afterwards.

Palace of Varieties | Adelaide Repertory Theatre

The Adelaide Repertory Theatre can be relied on at all times and when it promises “an evening of high drama and musical interludes” it means high jinks are on the way - and so it proved to be.

Burlesque by Force | Brodie John

Burlesque by Force is persistently provocative, munificent and shrewd.

In-laws, outlaws & other people (that should be shot) | Blackwood Players

Despite its grammatical inaccuracy, the title of this play by Steve Franco is beguiling and the Blackwood Players took it on with gusto.

Spring Awakening | Hills Musical Company

It’s a brave director who mounts a work addressing full frontally taboo issues like teen sex, masturbation, physical and sexual abuse, homosexuality, abortion, injustice, oppression of minorities and suicide.

Switzerland | State Theatre Company South Australia

This is shock-and-awe theatre. Switzerland is an exhilarating production, led by a strong performance by Gore that flourishes through its clean narrative and taut direction.
