Hell’s Canyon is definitely well-suited to premiere on RUOK Day, and is a strong representation of how tragedy impacts on people’s lives. Well written and produced, it is enjoyable and a good way to start a conversation about dealing with some truly awful things in life. Although minimal in presentation (two actors and a techie),...

O Vertigo is a production that settles in perfectly with the somewhat bizarre and funny mix that makes up Melbourne Fringe Festival. Set into two acts, Jacob Edmonds manages to bring forth the relevance of Dance Theatre and the emotions that it can draw from people while still fronting the show with a comedic presence....

Have you ever felt like watching something that is essentially 1984 meets The Hunger Games via The Government Inspector set in Australia? Then The Way Out, directed by Penny Harpham and written by Josephine Collins, manages to combine all three of these different plays into one, and creates an atmospheric, character-driven play. While not perfect,...

The space within the Improv Conspiracy Office, is as Nadine Sparks best describes, somebody’s office. The room is tiny and the stage even more so, lending an air of intimacy to the show. Sparks stars in one-woman play Rehab, a Fringe show that feels less like a performance and more like a conversation. The entire act is...

Tim Hewitt and Sam Taunton are two cute, affable and utterly non threatening middle class guys trying to go H.A.M (hard as motherfuckers). The split bill show has Hewitt and Taunton take the stage for half an hour each, giving the two reasonably young stand ups time enough to stretch their comedy legs without over-stretching...

I wanted to like They Say She’s Different, I truly did. And I think had I possibly been a bigger fan of Betty Davis and musicians from her era, I would have enjoyed this show immensely. I can say without a doubt, that my dad would have found this performance tremendous. I however, can only...

#DearDiary had great potential, and I was intrigued to see it (it’s possible I was an avid diary keeper at a young age). However, this intrigue left me as the show progressed, and I was left feeling simply disappointed in the end result. From what I could gather, the show was brought together in two weeks,...

On paper (and on radio), Murphy, Claire and Tom Present a Modern Guide to Etiquette in the 21st Century and Beyond is a show where the three hosts (Murphy McLachlan, Claire Sullivan and Tom Keele) examine manners post millennial, with special guests. On stage, that doesn’t really happen. With different guests and topics every night,...

by Nat Tencic It’s amazing that just a day after #ShoutYourAbortion went viral, a show completely about the theme of abortion should premiere. Lisa Harper Campbell is like your best friend: she’s warm, real, open, and bares all in the name of art. The conviction with which she delivers the show, the sheer casualness and comfort, the...

“I want to be rich, famous and powerful.” These are the words that introduce us to the personality that is Nick Eynaud. That, and an over-the-top show reel displaying his many talents in all fields. A Star is Bored is a firmly tongue in cheek, musical story of Eynaud’s young life and his long life...
