Review: Merry Wives of Windsor – New Theatre, Newtown (NSW)

One of William Shakespeare’s lesser-known plays, The Merry Wives of Windsor, is imaginatively adapted at the New Theatre with an Australian 80’s twist. Shakespeare’s setting of Windsor, England becomes the New South Wales suburban town of Windsor, Australia. Renaissance doublets have been replaced with extravagant perms and neon active wear; flagons of ale are instead VB tinnies. It makes for an entirely new reading of Shakespeare’s intricate tale of love, jealousy, and revenge. Read the full review now!

Review: Coil – UnWrapped at the Sydney Opera House (NSW)

“Streaming killed the video store”, and re:group performance collective are determined to pay homage to the communal space of adventure, possibility, camaraderie that was the aisles of Leading Edge or Blockbuster or the many others lost to time across Australia. Coil is an innovative and semi-autobiographical piece of “live cinema”, in which Steve Wilson-Alexander and Carly Young play themselves, and Solomon Thomas follows them with a camera to capture tiny snippets of footage that they edit together onstage and then later play together as parts of a larger film.
