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.

The Object of Desire
Melbourne based playwright Julia Britton has earned herself a fabulous moniker - the oldest emerging playwright in the world.

detest

Multi-skilled, charismatic, with an impressive emotional range, Cerini has created an award winning piece of work in association with sound designer Kelly Ryall.

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.

Nature of Things
Renato Cuocolo and Roberta Bosetti of IRAA Theatre are challenging the conventions of theatre once again with their latest production The Nature of Things.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream | 2021 Adelaide Festival

The bewildering confusion between dream and reality begins before one takes one’s seat in the theatre. You have to negotiate a building site and enter the Adelaide Festival Theatre by a side entrance (how like slipping into dream that is!), and put on a mask, so that it seems that the audience is itself on stage.
