Marjorie Prime | Ensemble Theatre

For anyone who has dealt with the deterioration of a parental figure, this is a deeply affecting, hopefully cathartic, but potentially harrowing night at the theatre – this is an intellectually stimulating, emotional gut-punch of a play.

Bliss | Belvoir

In what might be either a psychotic break or a divine revelation, Harry Joy concludes that when he “died” it was not his old life to which he returned, but rather has found himself in Hell.

Assassins | Sydney Opera House

Assassins is not a conventional narrative musical, to be sure, but it is powerful stuff, with an emotional and intellectual impact not to be underestimated, lurking just below the surface of its outré premise and delightfully gaudy production design.

Saint Joan | Sydney Theatre Company

STC’s new production of Saint Joan comes firmly recommended, reworking Shaw’s original text in a robust new version filled with passionate and moving performances.

Snow White | Ballet Preljocaj

This production of Snow White is spectacular. Strong and sensual woman lead the way and this production will change the way you view this classic fairy tale.

Stalking The Bogeyman | Red Line Productions

Stalking The Bogeyman sifts through rage, recrimination and revenge, exploring ideas of redemption and reconciliation.

The Walworth Farce | Workhorse Theatre Company

What sounds like a silly as a supermarket trolley wheel romp, The Walworth Farce is a sinister story of history held hostage by homicidal patriarchy.

Gypsy | Hayes Theatre

The musical Gypsy, is a near perfect show, exquisitely crafted by a collection of geniuses of the music theatre genre.
