Constellations | Tasmanian Theatre Company

This play by English enfant terrible, Nick Payne is a canny choice by the Tasmanian Theatre Company.

101 | Blue Cow Theatre and Three River Theatre

A play about George Orwell, sailing and danger.

Gruesome Playground Injuries | Tasmanian Theatre Company

The play zigzags between moments of real pathos, laughter, the farther reaches of psychological motivation and plain old-fashioned gross-out slapstick.

Antarctica – A New Musical | Tasmanian Theatre Company & Sundog Productions

Antarctica the musical has some very important, relevant information to convey to audiences. It tries to find a place within the genre to get the messages across while being essentially entertaining, and without being too dry or “preachy”.

Cabaret Showcase | Festival of Voices

An all local cast of musicians, singers and dancers graced the stage of The Peacock theatre in the Salamanca Arts Centre to present Cabaret Showcase as part of Hobart’s Festival of Voices.

How to Hold Your Breath | Loud Mouth Theatre Company

We think we’re safe in “the west” from the atrocities that happen elsewhere; the war, the poverty, the displacement. To deal with the Devil seems just as unlikely, until it happens.

Back to the Eighties | Old Nick Company

Whether you lived through the 80's as an adult, grew up in the decade or were born since, you will be chuckling in your seat (or possibly shaking your head) in the happy, nostalgic mood that the songs and fashions of the 80s seem to carry with them.

Legs, Elbows, Lips

Legs, Elbows, Lips is a marvellously rich depiction of romantic relationship gone wrong – or perhaps just a romantic relationship; perhaps the play is saying that all romantic relationships go wrong. Or that going wrong is somehow right?

Driftwood The Musical | Umbrella Productions

Driftwood the Musical is a moving, enthralling story of a family surviving the ravages of war. It so timely, that it’s both poetical and painful.

The Girl from the North Country

Set in Duluth Minnesota in 1934, The Girl from the North Country is a snapshot of troubled people enduring troubled times, gripped as they are by the Great Depression.

Cathedral | State Theatre Company of SA

It's a brave actor that takes on a single hander. The challenge of remembering lines, and holding audience's attention alone on stage for an hour and a half is a gargantuan one. But the actor is not alone.

Pieces of Shit | Bronte Charlotte and Leigh Scully

Charlotte and Scully delivered a thoughtful, funny, and moving new play that balanced toilet humour with hard-hitting, timely content.

Buried TeaBowl - Okuni | Yumi Umiumare

Movement artist Yumi Umiumare is out of the box and not easy to classify with a particular style.
