Autobahn
LaBute’s cycle of plays is the very definition of the term ‘variations on a theme’. A series of slow-burn mono and duologues, each set in the front seat of a car, the cycle serves, sometimes too explicitly, as a kind of social rap sheet.

Private Fears in Public Places
Private Fears in Public Places is a comic tale of the overlapping lives of six people living in one city.  Written by Alan Ayckbourn and directed by Michael Gow, the play opens the Queensland Theatre Company's 2007 season, leaving audiences sated but not enthralled by the upcoming theatrical year.

Tiger Lillies
Expect all morals and everything you know to be right and good to be turned inside out when you see the Tiger Lillies. Martyn Jacques, Adrian Huge and Adrian Stout lead their audience through a destructive, grotesque path of naughty British humour which speeds right past Benny Hill and crashes into murder, brothels, bars, the crucifixion, drugs and severe mental illness.

Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999 | James Acaster

Not Quite White | Vanessa Steinberg

Steinberg opens with a long, graphic diatribe about dating as a 53-year-old serial divorcee with a history of drug use and adversity to working for a living.

Go Solo | Paul McDermott and Gatesy

If you’re a fan of a particular muso or comic, you’ve probably wondered what they’re like at home or with their mates. Tripod and DAAS fans now have that option. At least occasionally.

Wil-Informed | Wil Anderson

Wil is now 45 and it’s time for the middle-aged, white, hetero men to have their say! This threatened species needs to reclaim its position in the world and find its voice.
