Hand to God

\The critically acclaimed American play HAND TO GOD, about a demonic sock puppet thst wreaks havoc on relationships and faith in a small Texas town. will have its Australian premiere at The Alex Theatre from February 22. 2018 for a strictly limited season.
IN this pure black comedy which received five Tony Award nominations in 2015 icluding Best Play, something devilish is lurking in the church basement puppet show in Cypress, Texas. And his name is ... Tyrone. He may look like an innocent sock puppet, but when he infiltrates the angst-ridden church group and takes possession of Jason's arm, all hell breaks loose. Spectacularly foul-mouthed and wickedly scandalous, Tyrone shocks the congreation with his outrageous indinuations, exposing their deepest secrets - and teaching us all about love, grief and ehat it means to be human. following on from Broadway and Lodon runs, this darkly delightful and widly funny comedy will shoch and delight the audiences.
The Australian premiere season of HAND TO GOD will feature Gyton Grantley ad the dhy and awkward Jadon, whose seemingly lifeless hand puppet, Tyrone, begins totake on alife of its own. Alison Whyte as his mother Margery, Grant Piro as Pastor Greg, Jake Speer as Timothy and Morgan O'Reillyas Jessica.

Defitely for mature audiences due to its rude, raunchy, and riotously funny content. You've been warned!

Moist Yeriza

  • Dry and acerbic as a gin sling, full of late-night energy and deadpan rowdienss, Moist Yeritza will challenge what you think about drag queens. A woman playing a man playing a woman singing I'm Your Man ... how much more post-modern can drag get."
    Bridget Haylock is Moist Yeriza, in all her deep-voiced, long-lashed, big-haired, and lurex-wrapped glamour. She wows the crowd in a cabaret show that is very intimate, and also quite loud and universal, a bit like Moist herself. She doesn't interpret songs so much as raucously barrel thtough them.

Cleave

Sex, blood, freaks and world class puppet magician in a stunning solo theatrical production by colleen Burke.

Daisy and Violet Hilton were conjoined twins born in 1908 in Brighton, England. They were the highest paid Vaudeville act of the 20s and 30s. Colleen Burke was born with twin internal sex organs, and had a 'twin' sister who was born with cerebal palsey. Cleave is a night of intimate storytelling and puppetry that intertwines the narrative of these two sets of most unusual twins.
The Hilton twins were exploited from te day they were born. When their apoppearance at Luna Park, Melbourne at the age of 4 failed to draw big audiences, the sisters went to an outback circus where they encountered Mike Myers, a Balloon salesmnan from Clifton Hill. Myers took them on to fsame and his own vast fortune, however they were kept prisoner throughout their lives until they were emancipated at 21 in a highly publicised court case. After numerous failed afforts to find love and marriage, they ended up working as strippers in theior later lives and then going to work weighing fruit for a grocer before dying alone anf friendless from the flu'.

Pop Up Globe

Pop Up Globe

Shakespeare like it’s 1614
Pop-up Globe, the world’s first full-scale temporary working replica of one of the greatest theatres in history, the second Globe, has poped-up right next door to the iconic Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
It will pop-up, be amazing and then disappear again.
Epic battles. Laugh-out-loud comedy. Dazzling special effects. Elaborate costumes. Spectacular dances. Sword fights in full suits of armour. This is Shakespeare like it’s 1614.\
Don’t miss the immersive experience of Shakespeare performed in the space for which it was written.
This isn’t dusty Shakespeare. This is now. Alive. Like a party.

Pop0up Globe is proud to present four critically acclaimed productions, all made in-house by the company’s annual professional acting ensemble, supported by voice, movement and stage combat specialists, designers, scenic artists, production and stage managers, directors, academics and creative teams
The four productions Henry V, (1599), As You Like It (1599), Othello (1604), and Much Ado About Nothing (1598-99) are bound together by their shared place as outputs of an earlier-to-mid-career playwright working at the height of his powers. But they share more than this extraordinary pedigree,
All of Shakespeare’s plays offer treatments of love as the most powerful transformative force working on the human condition. But these four are unusual in that they all take acts of jealousy as their primary structural motivation. Jealousy, the ‘green-eyed monster’ is the darker side of love.
he stronger the love, the stronger the attendant jealousy.   
See it from 21 September Only in Melbourne.
Pop-Up Globe Sydney Myer Music Bowel. Melbourne. .

Witness Shakespeare’s ultimate psychological thriller in Pop-up Globe’s
production of Othello.
Take a journey into the diseased mind of the noble Moor as
he’s consumed by jealousy, ‘the green-eyed monster.’ The twists and turns in
this powerful and dark production will have you on the edge of your seat.
Othello “O beware, my Lord, of jealousy. / It is the green-eyed monster
which doth mock / The meat it feeds on.”
The Pop-up Globe Queen’s Company presents Othello at Pop-up Globe Melbourne.
The Pop-up Globe Queen’s Company is Pop-up Globe’s resident mixed company
of male and female actors and live musicians, working with world experts to bring you the shock of the old: the effect of Shakespeare’s plays performed in the space for which they were written.

Henry V,
Shakespeare’s tribute to one of history’s greatest leaders, comes alive like an action movie. Be part of the English army as the heroic King Henry takes on the French army at Agincourt in the face of impossible odds. No knowledge of history is necessary to enjoy this immersive theatrical experience complete with spectacular and blood-thirsty battle sequences, performed by sixteen men in full armour wielding broadswords, longbows, garottes, cross-bows, bagpipes and a frying pan.

Henry V
“We would not die in that man’s company / That fears his fellowship to die with us.”
The Pop-up Globe King’s Company presents
Henry V
at Pop-up Globe Melbourne.
The Pop-up Globe King’s Company is Pop-up Globe’s resident all-male company of actors and live musicians, working with world experts to bring you the shock of the old: the effect of Shakespeare’s plays performed in the space and style for which they were written.

Step into history and experience the triumphs and disasters that tell the story of the second Globe Theatre: from the fascinating story of its construction by Shakespeare and company after the catastrophic mid-performance fire of  1613 to its decline and fall as the bloody English Civil War started in 1642. Along the way, expect to meet outrageous characters from its history, and to laugh, shout and cheer as a cast of five actors share the extraordinary tale of one of the greatest theatres in history: the second
Globe.

The Owl and Cat

THE OWL & CAT THEATRE - VENUE CLOSURE.

Dear reader, 

A lot of electro swing, drinking & theatre making later... the time has come to close the doors on the old haunted house style theatre venue (with terrible signage. I know!) on swan street. Thomas & I got a crazy idea & we ran with it. 50 or so shows later - that crazy idea has grown into what I like to believe is now a key part of the Melbourne theatre scene.

I have had the joy of watching SO many artists grow & gain opportunities & experience, what a gift! The thank you letters & messages from artists who wouldn't be were they are now if it wasn't for something we did or said or simply enabled them to do, are enough to make my life complete. From musicians to set designers to actors & visual artists. The Owl & Cat Theatre has become known & appreciated as a space of equality, acceptance, & artistic expression. It's a home to fearlessness & compassion & heaps & heaps of dust. I have seen audiences filled with awe & inspiration & genuine insight. All of THAT I would pay twice for then again & again & even over once more. 

In the coming year we will continue our production partnership with our Alaskan family at The Last Frontier Theatre Conference in Alaska & we will continue to push boundaries & support new playwrights in different locations. I don't know where the wind will take us just yet but I am excited to find out. I look to MKA as inspiration in this challenging time & I look to all the people that gathered around 2 crazy kids fresh out of a drama degree who wanted to make new theatre. Thank you to those people. The ones who kept the space alive this long. (I tried to write a list of names & this paragraph actually got out of h& - you know who you are - I love you) 

I am honored that I was given this experience & I urge you too remember this at this time - I will remember it too.. we are not a building .. we are artists who work together to tell stories, stories that help people to understand themselves & others more. Theatre has an amazing ability to bring people together & that can't be taken away. 

The Owl & Cat will continue to make theatre, & continue to try new ideas fearlessly, we will continue to make art that tackles anything head on & continue to take submissions. Stay updated via our website - www.owlandcat.com.au

I'm incredibly proud of so so so many things we have created over the years like ORGASM, Boys Club, Tinder Box, Erasers, Bordello, killers, RIOT, our sets, The Main Stage seasons, giving poetry nights a venue & hosting friends parties.. oooh baby our parties (they are always great let's be honest!). Just to name a few. I am chuffed that playwrights flew across the globe to see their work on our little concrete stage from the USA & LONDON. 

What I am most proud of though- is something that we can continue from any space. I am so proud that we take the time to consider everyone. Thomas would read scripts for weeks on end literally weeks - all day every day just reading play after play to ensure all the writers who bothered to submit got a fair go, he would demand world premieres even if they don't sell because writers need a chance. I would sit for hours to watch every actor who registered to audition with an open mind no matter what school they went too or experience they had. I remember the rejection emails as a younger actor. & I do understand the time & financial restraints from the other side of it- but that's why I am proud. We did it anyway. Why? Because we love theatre & we know what it is like to fight for what you believe in. The fight can't be easy or it's dull - but you need someone to give you water ringside right? When the people, who wouldn't otherwise have had the chance to try, did with us... & then they succeeded... man... let me tell you, that is better than any drug on this earth. 

A little bit of my heart will stay on Swan Street... BUT no matter where the Owl & Cat's home is - I have no doubt that this spirit of acceptance; innovation & joy will follow us there. 

As Catherine Holder & Carolyn Dawes (Who have been integral to the longevity of this whole operation to date) reminded me on my birthday... 'if you build it they will come'. 

I will keep building & I hope you will come. 

STAY TUNED.... meow.... 

Sincerely,

Gabrielle Savrone

Mistress of The Owl & Cat Theatre

2018 Season

We Need You More Than Ever


Hullo,

It has been an overwhelmingly exciting year for Red Stitch - sellout houses,. new audiences, loyal supporters, regional tours and a season of acclaimed new work. And, with thanks to you - a small step in the right direction with an increase to our artists fees. We are growing and the outlook for the next 6 months is no exception.
However, the proposed Federal Government budget reform to the Arts announcement last month has sent waves of uncertainty through our community. Red Stitch are among those now vulnerable to funding cuts. Grant applications that were well underway have been scrapped as relevent programs evaporate.
We need our community's support now more than ever! We are committed to advancing the vitality of Australian theatre through nurturing artists and an unerring pursuit of integrity in our craft. But without our audience, theatre doesn't exist. We ask you, our community, to do what you can to ensure Red Stitch is alive and vibrant for years to come.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Nearer the Gods

Isaac Newton's first law of motuon are the foundation of countless human advancements. This is the story of how one of the greatest moments of scientific illumination almost didn't happen.

It's 1684, the dawn of the Elightment. Bright young astronomer Esward Halley must somehow eangle the secrets of the universe from the brain of fickle and contrary Isaac Newton. At the same time he must wrestle with his faith and risk his home, family and reputation to find the money and means toshare this beautiful, powerful theory witht he world at alrge.

For all the celestial bodies and scientific laws named after them, it's easy to think of our 17thCentury giants as infallibel geniuses. But here are our most powerful minds laid bare: ridiculed with self-doubt, squabbling over fame, and ensconsed in bitter intellectual rivalries.

An irreverent but tender memoir og a father, a son and a question of faith.

What does it mean to be a good Muslim boy? You probably shouldn't gawk at girls in bikinis or fake a medical degree.

Meet Osamah Sarni. He s done all of the4 above, considering his father is one of the leading Islamic clerics in Australia,, having pulled his family out of war-torn Iran to settle in suburban Melbourne.
But when this kindly and unorthodox dad dies suddenly during a trip to Iran, Osamah must grapple with an inscrutabler and corrupt bureaucracy in his fight to bring his father's body home to Australia - all the while looking back on his life in a haunting hilarious and heart-wrenching retrospective.,

Black is the New White

Two politically powerful families at war. A son and daughter helplessly in love, defying thier parents. You've heard this story before - but what if Romeo was white, Juliet was black and the war mainly fought on twitter?
After a whirlwind romance, hotshot lawer Charlotte gibson and penniless avant-garde cellist Francis Smith are engaged . One thing stands in their way; Charlotte's the favourite daughter of Australia's most charismatic Aboriginal politician, and Francis is the son of his dour and stridently conservative rival. It's been mutual hatred for decades, sparked by an infamous shoe-throwing incident on the floor of parliament.
As the two bitterly entrneched families collide in the Gibson's glitzy holiday mansion over an aussie Christmas dinner, the long-standing feud comes to a head. Cue a sharp-witted and ridicously funny struggle for dominence where barbed insults fly, gender, religion, status - are mercilessly skewered.
