One Man’s Life Of Grit, Terror And Heartache.

Do not miss this achingly brilliant, ovation worthy theatre show.
Abused and isolated, Occi struggles to avoid his ghosts and tortured memories of mental institutions. He is violent and vulnerable, soaked in alcohol and yearning, seeking redemption. Our challenge is to perceive Occi as more than a thug – as he and his mother fight for survival in a tough garrison town on the edge of a cruel and unforgiving world. Directed by [Melbourne Fringe co-founder] Greg Carroll, Swansong is an acclaimed production, and roller-coaster ride transporting its audiences into the life of an enraged ‘Occi’ played by Andre De Vanny (‘Best Actor’, 2015 Green Room Awards). 

Some trigger warnings (mental health, family abuse, domestic violence, strong course language)

L'amante Anglaise (The Lovers of Viorne)

Captivating True Crime Drama not to be missed.

Classic psychological thriller from one of France’s most renowned authors; Marguerite Duras

A brutal murder is committed in a small town in France. The dismembered corpse is dropped from a railway viaduct onto passing trains below… All except the head. Based upon an actual event, L’amante Anglaise is a beautifully poignant and emotionally powerful portrait of lost passion. This modern classic psychological thriller from celebrated French author, Marguerite Duras, takes you right inside the heart and mind of the perpetrator. A fascinating and compelling true crime story. Pierre (Rob Meldrum) and Claire Lannes (Jillian Murray -2015 Green Room winner, Best Female Performer, Independent Theatre) are ordinary human beings leading everyday lives until catastrophe occurs. Over the course of the drama, they effortlessly reveal the beauty and brutality of their inner selves, and create a painstaking portrait of lost passion. Performed exquisitely and directed by Laurence Strangio, L’Amante Anglaise is a rare and unmissable work of theatre. 



I Hope It's Not Raining in London

Gripping. Challenging. Confronting. Enlivening.

Delve into fresh, new theatre devised by the award-winning youth company ‘Bearfoot’.

"Two people trapped in a room. One is almost finished but the other is not yet ready. The other will be ready, but just not yet." I Hope it’s Not Raining in London is a contemporary, hybrid- experimental work in its exploration of our perceived realities and the effects of trauma. A sophisticated short play that places two strangers together in a mysterious room. Neither of them has knowledge of where they currently exist and how they got there- and the newest to arrive has no memories whatsoever.

Warning:Includes strobe effects and mature themes including images and references to sexual assault, sex, illness, graphic violence, partial nudity and suicide.

Recommended ages 15+ | Runtime 60mins no interval
