White Pearl | National Theatre of Parramatta/Sydney Theatre Company

For a first play this is not short on ambition, tackling not only racism from an underrepresented angle, but also classism, misogyny, cultural specificity in a globalised marketplace, corporate culture, and the currency of outrage in the social media age.

Baby Doll is an effective, if imperfect, re-adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ lesser-renowned material, via an intermediate film version.

Calamity Jane | Bangalow Theatre Company

Every performer is a star of their own making (tremendous effort by everyone) with classic facial expressions, voices lifted to give it their all, engaging the audience and drawing us in to their world.

Much Ado About Nothing | Bell Shakespeare
