Bijou's Secret

Bijou's Secret is the haunting story of the three generations of women, and how their lives have been blighted by the bitterness of the unacknowledged past.

Ruben Guthrie | Blue Cow

This is a play about ‘self-help,’ but in the sense that has meaning, not the daft sense. It's about quieting all the voices competing for attention, and confronting the true struggle that is Ruben's and Ruben's alone.

Love | Terrapin Puppet Theatre
Finegan Kruckemeyer's most recent script for Hobart's Terrapin Puppet Theatre, Love, is, in it's best moments, charming and elegant theatre.

The Golden Age | Old Nick

It's a simple story, a modern fable with a satisfying sense of inevitability about it. The plot, then, is not really the thing: this is a play about how the situation is handled by each of the characters.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream | 2021 Adelaide Festival

The bewildering confusion between dream and reality begins before one takes one’s seat in the theatre.
