Arthur Miller RIP. Willy Loman is alive and well and in the excellent hands of Hearth Theatre in the heart of Melbourne.

At What Cost? is a complex piece of work, full of righteous anger, full of family love.

Having seen Watch This at work before, the calibre of performer and performance in this production was absolutely as expected and so incredibly high.

In an interesting departure from the Melbourne Theatre Company’s usual fare of big budget, razzle dazzle productions, Touching the Void is a refreshing change for the company.

Wudjang: Not the Past is, among other things, a powerful wake-up call to non-indigenous Australians like me. After almost 250 years we shouldn’t need it, but we do.
