2024 SEASON

February/March Season – Exit Laughing

Written by: Paul Elliot

Production Dates: 23/02/2024 - 09/03/2024

Directed by:  Dale James

 

When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly bridge night out with the "girls," what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies? If you're Connie, Leona and Millie, three local ladies, you do the most daring thing you've ever done. You "borrow" the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game, and the wildest, most exciting night of your lives involves a police raid, a stripper and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you're truly living.

November Season – Picnic At Hanging Rock

From the book by Joan Lindsay

Adapted by Tom Wright

Production Dates: TBC

Directed by: Kathleen Del Casale

 

On a summer's day in 1900, three Australian schoolgirls on a picnic expedition to the remote Hanging Rock abscond from their group. They are last seen heading towards the beckoning Rock...

In Tom Wright's chilling adaptation of Joan Lindsay's classic novel, five performers struggle to solve the mystery of the missing girls and their teacher. Euphoria and terror reverberate throughout the community, as the potential for history to repeat itself becomes nightmarishly real.
