Rageboy
Toby Milk’s heartfelt quiet rage is a journey of absurdity and episodic dysfunction; it is also infinitely believable, thanks to an enthusiastic ensemble performance.

Nature of Things
Renato Cuocolo and Roberta Bosetti of IRAA Theatre are challenging the conventions of theatre once again with their latest production The Nature of Things.

El Caballo Blanco
El Caballo Blanco is a celebration of the Spanish horse. In a specially constructed pavilion the audience is treated to a delicious meal and given the opportunity of watching magnificent and highly trained horses strut their stuff with style, precision and plenty of personality

Fantastic Mr Fox
Fantastic Mr Fox follows the trials and tribulations of a sly simple fox who tries to feed his family despite the protestations of three greedy farmers who have too much poultry and far too much ego to share their good fortune with those less privileged.

Her Aching Heart
Her Aching Heart first staged in the UK in 1990 is a romantic comedy tribute to the darkness and light of romantic fiction. It is dutifully, respectfully and hilariously revived for Midsumma 2007.

Hayley Clare
Hayley Clare looks like an angel and has the voice to match. She may not be well known - yet - but a large following turned out to see her sing with her quintet of jazz musicians at Bennett’s Lane

Shaolin Warriors

The monks' current touring show, Legendary Masters of Kung Fu, has a much more integrated theatrical approach, with acts blending comfortably into one another and plenty of fast-paced ensemble action. It's not short on entertainment, even for Kung Fu virgins like myself.

Don's Party

The play has certainly dated to some extent and has become a drawing-room drama, albeit in Australian suburbia, where the initially shocking issues of promiscuity, wife-swapping and lesbianism now seem rather tame, but that is not the only problem.
