Condensed Literature: The Iliad | Black Martini

Enthusiastic and ambitious romp through an accelerated epic.

Swing Man | Damian Callinan

Having seen Cullinan's previous shows The Merger and The Lost WW 1 Diary, which to be correct, were really short, one man plays rather than a stand-up comedy act, I wondered how he could stretch a dance craze into a show. My fears were unfounded.

Raglan Fetish Show

Interesting if pretentious premise, requiring further character development but celebrating its rough edges.

So Far So Good | Gillian Cosgriff

Humour with a light touch, sweet piano tunes and upbeat presentation combine in an enjoyable witty show.

All the Rage | Claire Hooper

Hooper is mistress of the deadpan straight-face, irony-laden punch line. Yet she also charms with her sunny smile and the occasional mime of particularly awkward moments.

Fear | Angela Donlan

A promising premise, a densely written script with some rough patches in delivery.

The Barber Shop Chronicles | Fuel, National Theatre and West Yorkshire Playhouse

Barber shops, like ladies’ hairdressers, are traditionally seen as repositories of confidential and often controversial opinions. History, race, colour, bigotry, politics and sex – nothing is taboo in this sanctuary.

Milky Way: Ballet at the Quarry | West Australian Ballet

Each summer, Western Australia’s finest dancers perform against a backdrop of stars and gum trees at Floreat’s magnificent quarry amphitheatre – a celebration of the raw beauty and energy of human movement.
