The Lux Radio Theatre presents

Gone with the Wind

Sun 25 July 2.00pm | Burrinja Theatre

The perennial favourite Gone with the Wind is currently being performed on stage as a classic radio play by the Lux Radio Theatre. Set against the American Civil War, it is the stirring story of Scarlett O’Hara and her romance with the debonair Rhett Butler. The story has intrigued several generations since the book was first published, and the 1939 movie is still the highest grossing film of all time. The Lux Radio Theatre company has become an audience favourite. It started with a series of productions at Arts Centre Melbourne and has toured widely in Victoria and Queensland, to the Brisbane Festival, Noosa Longweekend, and the Castlemaine Festival. A group of distinguished actors double roles, create live sound effects and perform classic soap commercials.  The audience is also very much a part of the action - playing the guests at a ball and applauding on cue.

‘It was like stepping back in time to days when the family would gather around the wireless to listen to their favourite radio play.’

Arj Barker • Comes Clean

Thu 19 Aug 8.00pm | Burrinja Theatre

“Do I swear to tell the whole truth? No, but I'll swear while telling the partial truth. And trust me, it's a lot more fun that way. If you truly want to laugh, then take my word for it. This is honestly the best hour of BS around; I kid you not...” Arj Barker

And he’s not wrong. Australia’s adopted son of comedy returns to Melbourne to premiere his brand-new hour of riotous comedy in Arj Barker ‘Comes Clean’.  

Be prepared for some home truths, some vague truths and some information none of us are ready to hear, but won’t be able to forget any time soon, because Arj brings the hilarity and lots of it.

WINNER - 2019 ARIA Award for Best Comedy Release – ‘Organic’

 “It’s a joy to spend an hour in his world” ★★★★★ The Advertiser

Animal Farm

Shocking, relevant and wickedly funny. Pig in now to avoid disappointment.

Tues 14 Sep 7.30pm | Burrinja Theatre

Animal Farm, one of the most controversial and studied political commentaries returns in a multi-award winning, critically-acclaimed physical theatre production.

George Orwell’s simple yet intensely powerful fairy tale illustrates with stunning clarity and grotesque beauty how greed and power corrupts and with devastating consequences, can change the course of history. Revolution has taken place at Manor Farm. The pigs have assumed control and under the principles of Animalism a better life free from human service is promised to all. Guided by a simple set of rules and an unrelenting respect for authority, it is not long until the rules that promised freedom become the chains that bind the animals once again. Directed by Michael Futcher and realised by shake & stir theatre.

Haze, smoke and strobe effects, loud music

The Crossing Machine plays Juliet Letters by Elvis Costello

The Crossing Machine bring this stunning work to life at Burrinja.

Fri 1 Oct 7.30pm | The Lyre Room

In 1993, Elvis Costello stunned critics and audiences alike with his gorgeous and ambitious album and song cycle, The Juliet Letters, recorded with The Brodsky Quartet. Against all predictions, the live-recorded classically leaning album, comprised of imaginary letters to Juliet Capulet climbed the charts worldwide.

Elvis Costello described The Juliet Letters as “a song sequence for string quartet and voice and it has a title. It’s a little bit different. It’s not a rock opera. It’s a new thing.”

LAB Kelpie & Burrinja presents:

Become the One

A live play reading of ‘Become the One’ and community dinner.

Sun 3 Oct 4.00pm | The Lyre Room

Noah, a young queer man, captures the attention of Tom, a closeted high-profile AFL player nearing the end of his career. Delving into the hyper-masculinity of sport, BECOME THE ONE asks what happens to such clandestine relationships when good intentions and patience aren’t enough anymore.

This is a celebration of difference, a call to bravery, and an examination of what it takes to do the right thing – as a lover, as a high profile sport star, as a human being – to BECOME THE ONE.

Join us for this live play reading, followed by a community dinner in solidarity and support of our LGBTQIA+ community.

“Heart wrenching, raw and categorically brave. Become The One doesn’t let you off the hook. We need more of this on our stages.”  Dani Rothwell, Theatre People

I Have A Face | Jude Pearl

An honest and hilarious discussion of mental health with a theatrical twist

Sat 13 Nov 7.30pm | The Lyre Room

Ever wondered if you’re doing it right? Well did you read the label? Life didn’t come with a label, but you will be told your whole life how you should behave or who you should be. You will be told that if you have a problem, there’s a quick fix you can buy… but somehow the problem doesn’t ever seem to really go away. Jude Perl’s insight into her personal and relatable mental health struggles of being an adult, will make you want to sing along, cry and laugh all at once. Sometimes labels are super useful, particularly when you’re washing your fave jumper. But at other times, labels can halt your growth and supress you’re very existence. Jude reminds us when to be aware of these labels, and when the labels are totally useless – and most importantly, that we are not alone. She’ll talk about some tough stuff, make you laugh and make you feel truly human.

Warnings: Contains occasional course language, mild sexual references, very mild drug references, and themes relating to mental health (anxiety/depression)
