Infectiously entertaining and rivetingly alive, Wayside Bride is a boldly embroidered quilt covering a period in the 1970s when Ted Noffs' Wayside Chapel established itself as a sanctuary for the homeless, the drug addicted, and anyone who fell between the cracks of orthodoxy.

The lights go down. The cicadas scream. The lights come up and we wait for the play to begin. Later, in the second act stricken by logorreah, we can’t wait for the play to end.

Seizing this once in a career opportunity, the incredible creative forces behind this production of Phantom have triumphed and powerfully re-imagined one of musical theatres most enduring and recognisable works against a globally famous backdrop.

Suspense and surprise go south in North by Northwest, substituted with cheesy cheer east of Edam.

Like champagne that’s lost its chill, life can lose its thrill.

Frilly, flimsy and flippant, focusing on frivolity,  the serious business of office politics, gender pay equality, sexual harassment and glass ceilings becomes an elusive facet.

Naive theatre meets high tech in The Umbilical Brothers’ production, The Distraction.

At What Cost? is a complex piece of work, full of righteous anger, full of family love.
