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.

El Caballo Blanco
El Caballo Blanco is a celebration of the Spanish horse. In a specially constructed pavilion the audience is treated to a delicious meal and given the opportunity of watching magnificent and highly trained horses strut their stuff with style, precision and plenty of personality

Fantastic Mr Fox
Fantastic Mr Fox follows the trials and tribulations of a sly simple fox who tries to feed his family despite the protestations of three greedy farmers who have too much poultry and far too much ego to share their good fortune with those less privileged.

Her Aching Heart
Her Aching Heart first staged in the UK in 1990 is a romantic comedy tribute to the darkness and light of romantic fiction. It is dutifully, respectfully and hilariously revived for Midsumma 2007.

Hayley Clare
Hayley Clare looks like an angel and has the voice to match. She may not be well known - yet - but a large following turned out to see her sing with her quintet of jazz musicians at Bennett’s Lane

Eva Yerbabuena
That Eva’s been dancing since 12 should surprise noone, since she does it with such consummate self-assuredness: while I’m gasping, in anxious anticipation of a fatal error, she’s dancing her heart and soul out.

Carmen The Musical
An 18-year-old Carmen?! A 15-year-old Escamillo?! (Indeed, all the cast was well under 30.) Unheard of! Sacrilege! Yet, it worked a treat!

Songs of Love and Death | Jane Sheldon and Alex Raineri

At this moment in our cultural history, as Australia emerges gradually from the restrictions imposed because of Covid 19, each live concert is a particularly reviving and refreshing experience.

Videotape | Montague Basement

Loved up in lock down lasts as long as the first knock down in Videotape.

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.
