Critically Wil | Wil Anderson

Wil Anderson was at his scathingly funny best. No mean achievement as he had just suffered a ghastly series of flight delays even getting to Perth.

Perfect Stranger | Kuah Jenhan

Kuah Jenhan brings a new perspective to Perth Comedy Festival, from Malaysia via Uzbekistan.

2017 Perth Comedy Festival Gala

Showcase of exciting upcoming shows, festival acts putting their funniest feet forward.

The Lighthouse Girl | Black Swan State Theatre Company

The piece is a tearjerker and works in subtle ways – especially as it coincides with ANZAC Day and all of the thoughts, emotions and debates that emerge from its yearly remembrance.

Once In Royal David's City | Black Swan State Theatre Company & Queensland Theatre

In this co-production from Black Swan State Theatre Company and Queensland Theatre, love and loss are explored in a riveting performance that pulls out all the stops.

Tosca | WA Opera

Giacomo Puccini’s opera in three acts, Tosca, originally premiering at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome in 1900, is one of the jewels in the Italian composer’s crown.

Disappointments | Judith Lucy & Denise Scott

Popular comedians Judith Lucy and Denise Scott have officially eschewed “stand-up comedy”. No, they are tired and have opted for the relaxed option of “lie-down comedy”.

Matilda the Musical

Matilda is the kind of cult classic you don’t want to botch. It’s a novel that’s dear to many reader’s hearts (my own included), so the stakes are high.
