Mother & Son on Stage

I wasn’t around in the 80s to know what Mother & Son was, have seen it, or truth be told have heard of it until this theatrical remake was released recently. Having now discovered it though, I’m ashamed to say I’d never paid that much attention to my inner Australian sensibilities. Mother & Son was a hit […]

Mein Kampf by George Tabori

It’s not often you see a chicken hacked-up on stage, gutted and so affrontingly dismembered to the point you might question your carnivorous ways. Until you see Mein Kampf by George Tabori. You watch the play, get mesmerised by its fast pace and intricate script and affronted by intense nudity and gruesome butchering. Every bit […]

Mr. Porter’s gone fit

Gone are the days when no one gave a damn about how they looked at gym. It’s not the most flattering of things to do with your time, anyway. Gone are the days when we wore whatever we could find because we knew it’d become foul within an hour or two. Nowadays, it’s about style […]

The Audi Hamilton Island Race Week

With summer coming up in a couple of months, it’s time to get excited about boats, sailing, the beach and a good old fashion regatta. While there’s nothing I love more than the bourgeois use of the word ‘regatta’, especially with an old world English accent, there’s one taking place in the sunny, summery beauties of Hamilton […]

Les Misérables

It’s hard to not be absorbed into the enthralling spiral of depression that is the story of Les Misérables and despite just how bleak the story can be at times, the performance by a cast of some of Australia’s finest is every bit as good as the critics have claimed. From page to stage, the […]
