Matrophobia! | The Daughters Collective

This show by The Daughters Collective touts itself as ‘honest’ feminist comedy delving into the ‘beauties, horrors and complexities of mother-daughter relationships.’ Maybe so, but unless I’ve missed something, great chunks of it come across as mother-blaming and lacking in context.

The Perfume Garden | Australian Bollywood Productions

Family, time, love, cultural identity, the migrant experience, magic and aging – themes which manifest as disappointment and frustration, resentment, compromise and broken promises.

Merciless Gods | Little Ones Theatre

Porn shoots, prisons, migrant camps and festering teenage boys’ rooms – the raw, incendiary scenes of acclaimed Melbourne playwright Christos Tsiolkas spring to life like a contemporary, sex-drenched Greek tragedy in the hands of Little Ones Theatre.
