That Time Everything Went Well and We Were Totally Fine

Gerry and Frankie are going out. They’re going to have a great night. Everything will go well, because they’re both totally fine. No, really. They’re fine.

Just have to remember the tickets, get on the train, make it to the show on time, obey the law, make conversation, keep smiling and remember to breathe. A brand-new sketch comedy for anyone who’s ever had one of those days.

Bombshells

Six women are about to explode. Dropping bombshells with every turn. Standing right in that moment when you’re not sure if you’ll laugh, cry, scream or tap dance. Join the mother, the dumpee, the drama nerd, the bride, the widow and the diva as they balance gladness, sadness and madness. It’s something we can all relate to.

REVIEWS

"Her finest performance goes to the most eye-raising and controversial character in the show" - Milk Bar Mag

Outside In

Seven women navigate their lives and themselves inside prison, trying to manage how much the outside seeps in. As a new inmate arrives and another prepares to leave, the cracks appear in a dangerously-thin veneer of order.

Beaton created the script out of "...a desire to create roles for women where they are seen as the subject and not the object”.

Playmarket describes it as, "Brutal, funny and at heart, a love story…. an intensely honest portrayal of seven women's lives within the hostile world of prison."

A Hero's Guide to Saving the Planet

An environmental superheroes adventure for anyone who loves to laugh. This funny, silly play reminds us of the important ways we can save the planet, by reducing what we use and recycling everything we can.

As Captain Eco and her sidekick The Green Defender race against time to discover who has been covering the streets of Footscray with litter, super-villain The Waster continues her plot to cover the world with trash.

With the help of the superheroes and their guide book, audiences learn about recycling, reusing, reducing and what happens (or doesn’t happen) to plastic after we’ve finished with it.

REVIEWS

"Adults and children alike come away genuinely empowered and motivated to do their bit for the environment" - Olivia Ball, Australian Greens

"fantastic production that is both entertaining and educative" - Audience member

The Tragedy of Macbeth

Ambition, betrayal, love, greed and blood.

A prophecy from a trio of witches foretells Macbeth will one day be Queen. Consumed by ambition and goaded by her husband, Macbeth murders Queen Duncan and takes the throne. The tyrannical reign that follows, filled with guilt and paranoia, results in a bloodbath and civil war, as Macbeth and Lord Macbeth fall deeper into the realms of madness and death.

REVIEW

"Belinda Campbell stars as the warrior turned queen Macbeth... Her fears and desires are chillingly human, visibly unnerved by both the prophecy and its hurdles and downing wine in an attempt to force herself to fulfill it." - Shakespeare Oz

Cosi

One of Louis Nowra's best-loved plays comes to life at Bluestone Church Arts Space in Footscray this summer.

It's 1971. Lewis has just graduated from university. As his best friend and girlfriend campaign against the Vietnam War, Lewis battles to stage a play with the patients in a mental hospital. When your government's actions seem insane, is a mental hospital the sanest place to be?

The Bookworm

Meet Paige Turner; a book-obsessed recluse, literally eating her way through literature in order to find her soul mate. But she’s moving dangerously close to the truth and her fantasy land of books is becoming more difficult to hide behind.

Will her soul mate find her buried amongst the novels and notes or will she need to go outside?

REVIEW

"Her character is lovingly realised, and it is clear a great deal of devoted care has gone into the production." - Trick of the Light
