The Curious Pain of Louis XIV
A Mistress, Black Magic, Adultery and a King with an anal fistula. This music theatre production appears to have it all, but the sad truth though is that despite some genuinely decent performances from the ensemble the piece as a whole was lacking.

Last One Standing
There are scenes where the dynamic relationship between the actors is like watching the ABC’s Australian Stories, sadly this is not realised throughout the entire piece.

The Rivals
Two squabbling couples? Tick. Comical servants? Tick. Cantankerous rich father figure? Tick. Mistaken identity? Tick. Improbable plot? Tick. Borat’s mankini? …well, a tick for that too, actually!
