Experience the magic and wonder of “The Magician’s Nephew” brought to life on stage

The Children

Lucy Kirkwood’s Tony-nominated play brings accountability and mortality to the forefront in this splendid and often very funny thought provoking work.

The Children

In a quiet coastal cottage, two retired nuclear physicists Hazel and Robin are living a simple life: yoga, salads, farming. Their old workplace, a nuclear power station, has just been devastated by a tsunami. Radiation fills the air. One evening an old colleague, Rose, drops by unannounced with a proposition which will shake their already fragile world.

Lucy Kirkwood’s (Chimerica, Mosquitoes) Tony-nominated play brings accountability and mortality to the forefront in this surprisingly funny and thought-provoking work. Head, heart and humour: the perfect ingredients.

Hell Hole: A Love Story

“You had me at the sturdy suffragist. This play is not some kiddies ‘introduction to the saints’. Adele Querol gives a truly engaging performance as Dorothy Day, which is physically placed to resonate an earthliness and looseness as she inhabits the Hell Hole, a bar where the drinks are plentiful and slide down quickly. She is heartbreakingly practical and down to earth, yet so evidently hounded by something bigger than her motherhood and past sins. The precision of the undercurrents in this production is so finely presented. There is so much to enjoy here, the wonderful performances being uppermost.”

Babette's Feast

“The play could easily be clunky and drawn out due to the transitions needed (and the setup of a banquet!), yet the transitions felt like perfectly timed dances, a breathtaking performance to watch within themselves.”

“Johann Walraven gives the play a strong production”

Babette's Feast

“This was such an enjoyable production told in such a captivating and unique way. Time honestly flew by as I was so wrapped up in the story and characters. Tackling themes such as guilt loss service and love in a way not usually explored, Babette’s will be sure to serve its audiences and unforgettable feast.

Babette's Feast

“Walking into the Australian Premiere of Babette’s Feast I was unsure as what to expect, aside from thinking it would include well a Feast. I walked out feeling lost for words that could capture the beauty of this production”

“This is a new kind of theatre that provokes, entertains and engages with the mind”
