Chocolate Monkey
A skilled actor, mimic and story-teller, Hussey performs his own writing with energy and deft authority, if somewhat broadly, aided by well-planned changes of pace and mood, and ably assisted by an excellent sound and lighting design.

Mojo
Detailing the travails of an inept handful of (very) small-time mobsters who run afoul of the real thing, Mojo gives us an entertaining vision of a 1958 London obsessed with imported Rock & Roll and American fashions, yet still profoundly British almost to the point of caricature.

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.

The Gates of Egypt
Stephen Sewell’s new play, The Gates of Egypt is a clarion call to extend ourselves beyond our individual temporal concerns and act within a larger moral framework.

Double Feature
Double dose + double drama = double trouble. A multiplicity of ideas and concepts all trying to be achieved on the same night resulting in a muddled hump of mess.

The Glass Boat
Bubbling with bouncy banter including every ludicrous Aussie-vernacular-cliché under our collective sunburnt brow, The Glass Boat loosely themes itself on time-travel, Christmas and a mental institution.

Synthony and Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra

I have seen classic, contemporary and experimental takes on orchestra, as I am sure many others have too – but I doubt many have seen something quite as grandiose and extravagant as the wild ride that Synthony takes you on.
