The Way Out

the way out
Close your eyes, really tight, breath the clean air and even just a for a second, imagine a bleak and dystopian place that has snatched from us all that is great about this country. Now, was that difficult, or is it not so much of a far reaching prophecy? For debuting play-write Josephine Collins, this is the backdrop to which...

Frankenstien

Presented by Theatre Works and Don't Look Away and written by Lally Katz, this a modern interpretation of work penned by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley. Oddly beautiful, and uncomfortable in it’s own skin this production is laced with some potent undertones but more importantly it's just damn good fun all round. This is Frankenstein, but not as you would know the...

Hugo Race and True Spirit at The Winnebago 18/7/2016

Watching this band for the second time and becoming more aware of their brilliance I have become entranced by the rough elegance of hardened, long term travellers from the Australian punk and rock experience that took the dangerous road to Europe to explore their music over many years and have a performance presence that elevates the sense. This is no band...

1917 – The Movie

1917 – the movie
War is not only Hell it is where it is waged as well Before I begin I have to say that being a front line soldier in 1917 is an experience I'm grateful I didn't have to live through. This stunningly filmed wartime saga goes far beyond my expectations and does not shy away from presenting the horrors of war. Telling the...

Mothers Ruin at Map57

Mother’s Ruin is Gin  Gin. Specifically, the alcohol beverage of Gin was called mother's ruin because in the mid eighteenth century the effects of gin on the family and economy were disastrous. Considered the poor man's drink due to its affordability, gin drinking had started out as medicine but due to its easy availability, men became impotent while women became sterile causing the London birth rate to decline...
