What a week for theatre? I'd be write lots of rave reviews, if I wasn't seeing shows every night.
Melbourne playwrights are rocking...
The Joy of Text
Robert Reid's mainstage debut is full of discussions about grammar and semiotics and he may be the only person who could leave me laughing about possible statutory rape.
A Golem Story
Lally Katz is writing at an astonishingly new level with a moving and heart-awaking work about the space that God once filled.
I haven't seen the return season of Declan Greene's beautiful and creepy piece about belonging, but I loved it to pieces last year.
Platform Youth Theatre, La Mama and Appetite
Chris Summers took the police shooting of a teenager in Northcote as the beginnings of this lovely work about the unimaginable impact of random violence. (Last day tomorrow.)
And then there are Perth artists...
The Bear Skinner
The Duck House and Theatreworks
A highly original, mesmerisingly beautiful and gorgeously funny re-working of a Grimms fairytale.
And now, I'm off to The Burlesque Hour LOVES Melbourne, which is sure to be as fucking awesome as as ever.
