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.

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!

This September The Butterfly Club presents a zany jaunt through mudical theatre and light opera classics as Luke Belle grapples with is on and off stage role as the long-time sidekick and Sensitve New Age Guy in a world of leading men - Prince Charming, the Hemsworth brothers and Christian Grey.
Luke might have bene an orphan in Fagan's gang. a Lord High Executionaer and a Gondolier-turned-King but he's never been the Leading Man, the heart=throb, the bad boy of even the boy-nest-door.
He's got a classic casse of Sidekick Syndrome and he wants to sing about it.
Moving from country Victoria to pursue training in classical voice over the last eight years, Luke is trading his opera roots foe a one-man cabaret this September. "In cabaret I/m abler to explore my love of musical theatre - including songs made famous by women - and play more than I would normally, in the classical world," says Luke, a cassically-trained light baritone.
With silly observations from childhood, teenage years in regional Victoria and today, this cheerful and carefully-crafted cabaret includes classic show tunes, much-loved Gilbert and sullivan standards as well as lesser-known operatta repertoire.

Bin this Word?

"These days", usage if the word 'truth' is, more than anything else, a cover for deceit. Most of us knowe that its application is thick on the ground within the owels of societal power groups. So-called 'fake news' is a pathetic badge for what has been taking place for yonks in our parliament, courts, media, real estate, religions, in schools, yes, even our homes. this work responds to that fear of stepping over the4line of our comfort zones. All of us are guilty of letting things slide and accepting that the misuse of the word in question and its accompanying word that also support its original meaning, as being OK. This intimate, challenging-for-all pice will excite, inspire and possibly cause anger for some. so be it/

Rejected by the authors of the Gospel, Mary tells the story that no-one wants to write. This Mary is unrecognisable frome the meek, obediant woman of scripture, painting and sculpture. She is angry, sharp-witted and dares to speak a dangerous truth. She is a mother who would not save her don from fanaticism and manipulation, who could not save him from his death upon the cross."

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 – 12 November 2017. 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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.
