The Owl and Cat


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 -

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....

Return to the Dirt

This play is remarkable for the ope that it inspires. In a time that has seen chaos and anxiety and despair, this is the story of a young person learning how to build a better version of himslef. At the heart of the play is friendship. And a deep gentleness. This s surprising in an artform that so often relis on spectacle and the rhythms of conflict.
Alsl surprisingly, this is a story about a young man that is not about violence.

First Casuality

Afghanistan 2011, Our Australian Soldiers, A War No-one Wins.

Welcome to the remote Combat Outpost Mirage, home to eight Aussie Diggers mired in our longest war. From this tiny fortification overlooking a bgeautiful valley on the forbidding mountains of Afghaniatn's Uruzgan province, Captain Trent Kelly and his men have a lot to deal with. When thwy aren't mentoring a platoon from the Afghan National Army, they're patrolling for Taliban insurgents, negotiating with a powerful local warlord, or simply making it through another day a long way from home.
Written by a serving soldier and veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, First Casuality is a debut play like no other. It's an authentic account of the real lves of Australian troops at war - the triumphs and the tragtedies, the strains and the sacrifices, the pressure and the release. There's tension, occasional explosions of violence, and humorl but at its heart First Casuality is about the friendship of sopldiers who have given up so much for their country.
This is not an anti-war story. This is not a pro-war story. this is a story of soldiers - the sons, the husbands, the fathers, the people we love.
Seaon: March 12 - Apoil 9. 2022

A German Life

A German Life is an extraprdinary theatrical tour-de-force from three titans of the theatre - Australia's finest stage performer Robyn Nevin in an astonidhing play by Christopher Hampton, directed by stage luminary Neil Armfield.
In the Australian Premiers of this highly demanding 90 minute solo triumph, robyn Nevin plays Brunhilde Pomsel, an unassuming woman with good shorthand skills who, almost by chance, came to work in Joseph Goebbel's Propaganda Ministry.
Pomsel struggled to ,ake ends meet as a secretary in Berlin during the 1930s, her many employers including a Jewish insurance broker, the German Broadcasting Corporation - eventually Goebels-before she emerged from the rubble of Hitler's bunker waving a white pillowcase to the approaching Russoan troops in April 1945.
Innocent or culpable? That's the question at the heart of Christopher Hampton's searching play, which was compiled from testimony of the then 103 year-old for the 2014 documentary A German Life. One of the last actively involved witnesses t the rise and fall and the aftermath of the Third Reich, Brunhilde is intelligent and likable, honest and credible. She doesn't hide her youthful ignorance at that regime's atrocities, her awe at finding herself at the heart of power, nor does she show any false remorse. Her refusal to think too hard about what was going on and focus instead on her own life, rauses cinfronting questions for contemporary audiences. As sdocial datastrophe creeps closer and inly united action can stop it, how doe we recognse that moment?
