The Season At Sarsaparilla
This new production of Patrick White’s ‘charade of suburbia’ The Season At Sarsaparilla, is all one could have hoped it could be: a triumph for director Benedict Andrews and for the STC’s Actors’ Company.

Back to Back Theatre’s smash hit production returns in a whirlwind Australian tour, the sell-out of the 2005 Melbourne International Arts Festival and more recently the 2007 Sydney Festival.

Love At Fast Sight
“How do you want your eggs in the morning; scrambled or fertilized?”
For those of us who have never experienced the weird and, well… weird world of Speed Dating, this play confirms our worst fears: Olivia Ansell’s hilarious short play seems more like a cautionary tale than an endorsement.

Birthday
The play is disappointing and does not meet the thematic challenges set by its creators.

The Narcissist
No ifs, buts or maybes, this play is vainly and unashamedly Brisbane. It is pure self-indulgence, and it feels good.

A Day in the Death of Joe Egg
Without doubt it is a beautifully crafted work wonderfully staged and directed in this production.

From Door To Door
The Jewish mother has somewhat become a stereotype in entertainment. The portrayal of the overbearing matriarch, who steadfastly drills in to her offspring the crucial importance of retaining the Jewish tradition, has been widely represented in literature, film and theatre.

All My Sons
All My Sons is a good example of traditional, well-made drama, based on ideas of responsibility and integrity, and a plot both deeply considered and soundly constructed.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

This long-awaited show delivers all you can expect and is a veritable feast for the senses! As much fun as a Wonka Fudgie Wudgie (and as whimsical as a Whipple Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight).

Eastern Promises | Opera Queensland

Before this concert began, Patrick Nolan, the artistic director of Opera Queensland, told us that we were in for a treat. But it was much more than that. 

Ethiopian & Still Not Hungry | Joe White

White’s ingenuous charm held the audience spellbound for a set lasting just over an hour.
