Review: U.B.U, A Cautionary Tale of Catastrophe – Kings Cross Theatre (NSW)

In a gloriously bonkers 120 minutes of theatrical perfection, U.B.U: A Cautionary Tale of Catastrophe throws Alice in Wonderland, the top three Shakespearean tragedies[1], Sesame Street, An Inconvenient Truth and a good helping of fart and poo jokes into a blender and fcucks them right up. If that sounds like the best thing you’ll see in Sydney theatres all year, find me on Instagram because we need to be friends. Read the full five star review now!

Review: HOW TO LIVE (After You Die) – UnWrapped at Sydney Opera House (NSW)

Following a serene, transporting minute of scene-setting music, renowned filmmaker and artist Lynette Wallworth entered the stage and welcomed us into the landscape of a section of personal history that she had held close for a long time. “Some stories are like family,” she explained, “you have to look after them for a long time before allowing them out into the world.” It was a striking way to begin, and gently but clearly informed us that it took great vulnerability to create the work we were about to experience.

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!
