What's On

Since Ali Died by Omar Musa
 

"I'm standing in a boat next to Muhammad Ali, floating down a dark river."

Rapper, poet and award-winning author Omar Musa brings his electrifying show Since Ali Died back to the Stables after a triumphant sold-out run at Griffin’s inaugural Batch Festival.

Using the death of his hero Muhammad Ali as a lyrical springboard, Musa dives into a furious torrent of poetry, story and song, confronting everything from suburban violence to lost love to his Malaysian heritage and the dark realities of growing up as a brown-skinned Muslim boy in Queanbeyan.

A livewire, hypnotic and totally unmissable hour of theatre.

“The show unfurls like the river imagery in Musa’s evocative script: borne on a central, unstoppable current, fluid and fluent in a style of its own making.”

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,...


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


Infectiously entertaining and rivetingly alive, Wayside Bride is a boldly embroidered quilt...


The lights go down. The cicadas scream. The lights come up and we wait for the play to begin....
