  • Bondi Legal

    Bondi BeachTheatre | October 11 - 26, 2019

    Hapless anxiety prone lawyer Brad Pitt ( no relation ) turns up to fill in for the day for a lawyer on holiday and is thrust unprepared into a complex court hearing.

    In the case a Bondi mother is suing a chemical giant because her daughter's show pony was ravaged by the company's cleaning product.

    Facing a lawyer who resembles a rottweiler and a scowling magistrate, Brad Pitt has to overcome the odds including a strange habit of passing out and waking up thinking he is a gorilla. Can he win the case on his own, or will some hypnosis get him over the line?

    This tenth anniversary production of Bondi Legal is fresh from a sell out tour of Tasmania. At the premiere it was described by Stage Whispers Magazine as "a funny and touching play."

    The comedy is based on an actual court case the playwright Tony Laumberg took on when he was a young solicitor

  • Playing Face

    Carlton (sydney)Theatre | October 23 - 26, 2019

    "Playing Face: To pretend to be what you believe you should be; or to perform the persona you believe yourself to have; or to play the role you have been assigned so well that your true self falls away, and what is left, is just a face."

    Come join Mr & Mrs King for the highly-anticipated season finale of their reality show, ‘Living with the Kings’! Famed musical duo, ‘The Wild Violets’ will be spending three days at the King’s mansion, and on the third day they will give us a show like non-other. Sure, Jason Wilde and Violet Young maybe a little more… peculiar when compared to their usual guests, but most would seem a little off when compared to the radiant perfection of the Kings. So, tune in to witness the endearing shenanigans that take place in their biggest finale yet!

    From the Newcastle creative team who brought you ‘I Hope it’s Not Raining in London’, 'Do Your Parents Know You're Straight?’, 'Take Me to Neverland’ and ‘Hermit Crabs and Meteors', comes Bearfoot Theatre's next original theatre experience: PLAYING FACE.

    Incorporating film elements and a fully original score, Playing Face blends genres including farce, murder-mystery, camp, absurdism and horror, to deliver an experience like non-other. The result is an uncut exploration of the performance of identity within the roles society has laid out before us, and how strict adherence to these roles can often lead to the erosion of our truest self.
