Melbourne Talam | Melbourne Theatre Company

“Follow the beat of the city and your life never goes off-key” but for three Indian migrants, who just can’t get the city’s rhythm right, Rashma N. Kalsie’s play, Melbourne Talam, dissects their plight in vivid, authentic detail.

Toyer | North of Eight

I read that you can burn the same amount of calories watching a thriller as in a 30-minute run. If that’s true then, watching North of Eight’s Toyer gave me quite the workout.

Echo | Melbourne City Ballet

If you are the sort of person who enjoys dance (or think you might enjoy it), you should take the opportunity to wander off of Chapel St this weekend and see what MCB has brought to this intimate stage space.

Miss Blossom Callahann | La Mama

This is the magic of Stephen House's writing. He gives a voice to the marginalised ones who don't have a voice, who are mostly invisible to us. He gives them their voice to tell their story, and lemme tell you, it's authentic stuff.

This is Eden | fortyfivedownstairs

In This is Eden, Emily Goddard tells the story of her great great great grandmother, Sarah Ford, who was transported as a convict in 1837 and imprisoned in the Cascades Female Factory near Hobart.

Cabaret

Fifteen years after I first saw Cabaret and this wannabe Kit Kat Klub girl is as enamored as ever with Kander and Ebb’s score, Gale Edwards direction and flawless performances from the entire ensemble.
