Hotel Bonegilla

18 November 2017 - Gateway Island, Lincoln Causeway, Wodonga, Vic
In 1997, HotHouse Theatre sprang to life with a large-scale community production of a new Australian play, Hotel Bonegilla. 34 community actors – many with close family ties to Bonegilla – raised the Butter Factory Theatre roof with a passionate performance dedicated to the many post-war migrants who came to our region to forge new lives. In the political climate of 2016/17, Tes Lyssiotis’ play still resonates powerfully, as she draws on the very personal stories and experiences of people who arrive, and strive, to make Australia their new home.

The Father – Melbourne Theatre Company (Audio Described)

28 November 2017 - Arts Centre Melbourne, Fairfax Studio, Melbourne, VIC
There’s definitely something fishy going on. You can’t fool André, and while he may be eighty years old and apt, on occasion, to forget things, they are only ever small things. Such as where he’s put his watch. It doesn’t explain why people are messing around with things in his flat, and why his daughter keeps contradicting herself. And it doesn’t explain why she allows strangers to come in and threaten him. No, something’s going on and he’ll get to the bottom of it

Vivid White (Audio Described)

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui (Audio Described)

28 April 2018 - Roslyn Packer Theatre, 22 Hickson Road, Walsh Bay, NSW
Hugo Weaving returns to STC in this powerhouse role. Written in 1941 as a cautionary satire on the rise of Hitler, Bertolt Brecht’s play is both thrillingly sharp and riotously funny. Set in 1930s Chicago, it has the wit, murder and musicality of a gangster movie while asking a very political question – how do we let a man like that come to power?

THE CHILDREN (Audio Described)

Playwright Lucy Kirkwood wowed us with the globe-trotting thriller Chimerica in 2017. Now, with The Children, she’s been heralded as “the most rewarding dramatist of her generation” (The Independent, UK). The play has been the toast of London and is on its way to Broadway.

ACCIDENTAL DEATH OF AN ANARCHIST (Audio Described)

20 October 2018 - Drama Theatre Sydney Opera House, Bennelong Point, Sydney, NSW
Written by Italian Nobel laureate Dario Fo in 1970, this farce with a political sting in its tail has become an absurdist classic. In a first for this play, director Sarah Giles has amped up the energy with an all-female cast led by some of the country’s funniest comedians. This is a smart and subversive new adaptation, created by Giles with co-adaptor Francis Greenslade (ABC’s Mad as Hell).
