Wages of Fear.

is a rare stage production of Georges Arnaud's remarkable 1950 novel. A landmark thriller, which was adapted into the iconinc film, is compelling and provocative tale of terror and suspense.
The story seems simple, two men living lives of bleak despair in a slowly dying town are offered an irrestible pay-day by an unscrupulous oil company. All they must do is transport a load of deadly nitroglyderine on a perilous journey to a destination that remains forever out of reach.
This ensemble piece will be performed on a stage that is dominated by the hulking monolith of the play's other protagonist - the truck - which plays its own menacing role throughout the unfolding tale. A musical score, along with emotive aound and lighting design, brings this provocative, volatile, exercise in dramatic tension to life.

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?

Rice

An insightful story about the personal side of globalisation

Everone has problems to deal with - in he boardroom od the basement, global or local, busienss or personal. Two multiculteral women making their way in modern Australia forge a powerful, if unlikely friendship that gets results.
Working late, high up in a skyscraper, Nisha - at 28, a business prodigy and second-in-command of an Australian rice company - is closing a massive deal with the Indian government. Working later still is rnment. Working later still is Yvette, who clears up her take-away.
"Indina princess" and :Chinese cleaner" is all they see when they face each other across the desk. They're from different cultures, different generations - but as the nights wer on, they discover te many ties that bind them, and help each othernavigate their complex lives.
Brimming with sharp observations on globalisation, power, politics and migration as well as plenty of wicked humour, Rice won Lichele Lee the Qwueensland Premier's Drama Award 2016-2017 and will be directed by Griffin Theatre's Helpmann Award winning director Lee Lewis.
Season: June 14 - July 1. 2017

An Octoroon

A Provocatively Hilarious Interrogation of Identity

It's the story of historical Louisiana. Or historical Far North Queensland. Or it's the story of a black playwright. Or how race is portrayed on stage. Or maybe...it's about how they're all the same story, Brash and provocative, the satircal comedy. An Octoroon can trace its roots back to an 1856 novel. than a stage melodrama by crowd-pleasing Irish imressio Dion Boucicault.
When the story of a man who scandalously falls for a sleve on his Louisiana plantation premiered in New York in 1859, it helped fan the flame of the American Civil War.
Today - with race still as incendiary a global issue as it weas then - dazzling and radical African-American playwright Brandon Jacobs-Jenkins has torn apart and rebuilt the original text as a towering, immercive and wildly funny thatriv=cal experience like no other.
In a version subtly recontextualised to uncover and skewer Australia's shameful history of slavery, leadin Abotiginal artist and commentator Nakkiah Lui makes her directrial debut in a Queensland exclusive featuring Miranda Tapsell, co-produced with Brisbane festival.
Season: September 16 - Octoberr 8. 2017.

St Mary's in Exile

It would be beyond belief if it wasn't true.

In 2009, Brisbane's Catholic community was roked when the Catholic Church stepped in to oust beloved priest Father Peter Kennedy from his post at St. Mary's in South Brisbane.
He led nore than 700 devoted parishioneers, but the Church's higher powers doubted his faith. They scorned the statue of Buddha in the foyer and frowned when he blessed same-sex couples, or let women into the pulpit.
So, on a stormy night, after refusing to resign or to fall in line with orthodoxy an excommunicated Father Peter is packing up to go into exile when a mysterious young nameless visitor walks out of the rain, wanting to know the story behind this unconventional holy man and what drove him to defy one of hte world's most powerful authotities.

Gripping and inspirational drama, St Mary's in Exile is the story of a tight-knit community, a poignant reminder that the word "church" refers not tot he 123-year-old heritage listed Renaissance building but the bond between the disparate people who gather there. A bond that endured when Peter handed over the keys and amid a media frenzy, and led his flock down the street to the Trades and Labor Council building where they still worship every weekend.

Kooza

Cirque du Soleil rediscovers its origins witht the company's eigth Big Top show to tour Australia. A return to the intimate and fundamental human elements of circus, Kooza combines thrilling acrobatic performance with the art of clowning. We follow The Innocent as he takes a journey of self-discovery through a comic kingdom of eccentric characters, electrifying thrills and out-of-the-box surprises.
Presented in a colourful mélange, Kooza springs open like a bejeweled toy box to capture the audience's imagination and set their pulse racing. Sheer human effort - performance in its rawest, purest form - is showcased in all its splendour and fragility.
The international cast of 50 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors present heart-stopping feats and laugh-out-loud antics to a live soundtrack fusion of jazz, funk and Bollywood beats.

Fun Facts about Kooza
All of Kooza's performers apply their own make-up. This can take up to two hours.
The teeterboard act in Kooza flongs artists into the air where they execute quintuple twisting somersaults.. and that's just the prelude!
The name Kooza is inspired
by the3 Sankrist word "koza" which means "box", "Chest" or "treasure" chosen because one of the uderlying concepts of the production is the idea of a "circus in a box".
Kooza's beautiful costumes were designed by Marie-Chantale Vaillancourt. She drew inspiration from a wide variety of sources including graphic novels, the painter Klimt, Mad Max movies, timetravel movies, India nad Eastern Europe, clock movements, tin soldiers, narching bands and more. this all merges to create a colourful look that alludes to Alice in Wonderland, Baron Munshüsen and The Wizard of Oz.
There are more than 175 costumes ansd 160 hats in the show - 1,080 items in all, including all the shoes, props and wigs.
The contortionists costumes appear to have metal chains and jewels on them. The metallic chains are actuallyu made of elastc and the jewels are silicone, to prevent any injury to the performers.
One army costume features more than 400 individually sewn metallic flaps tp create the effect that it is armoured.
