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.

The Lady Aoi
The traditional story of Lady Aoi is filled with poetic, flowing speech and beautiful dreamlike imagery but unfortunately none of this was apparent on the night.

10 Days on Earth
Burkett is undoubtedly a master of guiding his cast through all matter of human (and otherwise) gesture, but the real magic is his ability to convey characters across his player puppets.

Europe
Europe is funny and at times poignant as Douglas and Barbara struggle to meet across the divide of time and differing expectations.

Boston Marriage
Boston Marriage, performing at the Darlinghurst Theatre depicts two deliciously etched bitches with one thing on their mind. It’s not the same in each case, however.

Cursive
Cursive utilises a range of eastern and western movement disciplines, including martial arts, Chinese Opera movements, modern dance and ballet, to explore Chinese calligraphy masterpieces.

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.
