Students Hassan and Chloe are put on detention—one has been suspected of stealing their teacher’s money, and it’s up to them to decide what the truth is. It’s a simple concept that speaks volumes, and opens up a world of potential in this new production from Windmill Theatre Company. Moving away from the pure fantasy of some of their previous fare, Amphibian is an inventive production that motors along on the energy and vitality of its cast.

Rules for Living is a dark comedy about family dysfunction and societal norms by Sam Holcroft. The play follows a family preparing for Christmas lunch and tensions begin to rise as they deal with family issues.

Wonder and the search for meaning—two things that make life beautiful, and maddening. Tim Winton’s That Eye, The Sky encapsulates this beautifully, and grounds it with small family tragedies in a wholly Australian setting. After father Sam is left incapacitated from a car crash, it is up to his family—Alice, Tegwyn, and the youngest Ort—to care for him and keep their unit together while battling their own hidden traumas.

It’s garish, loud, bright, a little rude, wonderfully over the top and very, very funny: everything a bloody good drag show should be and more – it’s the marvelously gorgeous Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert – The Musical, whose bus has finally arrived, big-time, in Adelaide. Are we ready for it? YES!!!

It’s always great to be cheered up when the country is in turmoil! Out of Sight… Out of Murder gives you just what is needed to forget that there is a gladiatorial contest going on in Canberra which isn’t half as much fun as this show.
