Anthem for a Doomed Youth | Guy Masterson

We certainly are given a fair range of material to give us an insight into the rank stench, the rats, lice, endless rain, bodies in the trenches, yearning for home, the horrible wounds and ghastly deaths, the vile, cruel, terrifying gas and the forever present mud – thick, slimy, stinking, clinging, drowning mud.

Marathon | Adapt Enterprises

This play, Marathon, written by Edoardo Erba and translated from the Italian, was the reason the two protagonists Ross Vosvotekas and Adam Cirillo have been in training since October to meet this remarkable physical challenge.

 

Hamlet at the Bottle-o | Tongue in Cheek Voices

When three very talented people get together, a germ of an idea can become something entertaining, witty, revealing and a very good addition to the Adelaide Fringe.

 

The Unknown Soldier | Ross Ericson

You never know when you see something about war how you’re going to turn out in the end. If it’s an American film, for instance, you might feel uplifted full of that Yankee Doodly dum, glory, honour, country and all that. Not this show.

The Bridge | Green Eggs & Ham

The two young actors, who also wrote this play, carry it along convincingly and well and their skills at shadowgraphy add another very effective dimension to theatre arts which has faded from the repertoire over the years but makes a welcome return in this play.

Borders | Gilded Balloon and Redbeard Theatre

This is a story without an end. No, it’s two stories, one that’s sad because its protagonist takes a dubious path knowing that with it goes his integrity and the other because the odds are so against success and a life worth living for a young woman who deserves a chance.

 

Love Letters to the Public Transport System | Molly Taylor

A voice sang the first line of a song “Waiting for a train” and so we knew where we were, what she was doing and, without introduction and in the most informal way, Molly Taylor told us her story.

John Hinton's Scientrilogy: The Origin of the Species

His lyrics need a good lyricist and his music a tune now and again but his enthusiasm is infectious, he’s humorous, engaging – and he knows his Darwin.
