Charleen, 15, quick-witted and sassy, is Kurt Cobain's biggest fan and

especially melodramatic and rebellious, she decides to pull the plug

THE FIX
Knock & Run Theatre

 online tickets available HERE

How do you justify the unjustifiable? To convince yourself that a decision, so extreme, so final, makes perfect sense? Do the solutions - the fixes - we devise in our darkest moments have to make sense to anyone but you? The Fix poses these very question, as two complete strangers find themselves trapped together on the rooftop of a high-rise.

 

The Fix is a gritty black comedy/drama that highlights issues that are both confronting and heart-breaking as each man grapples with their own inner demons, family conflicts and ghosts from the past that have determined the directions they have each taken in life. It soon becomes clear that, while they are very different people, their stories are not so different.

APOSTLE TOUR
Peter Paul & Andrew 

online tickets available HERE

Peter, Paul & Andrew gather a short history of the western world of music. Epic in their contributions to acoustic music in Australia and a few world parts, they are champions & high demand session players of their musical instruments and perform seamlessly reflecting their 30 years of association in harmony and song. Pete Fidler - Dobro (slide guitar) with new CD and recent remake of Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd(!); Paul Wookey - renown for his incredible Blues to early Country delivery including many 60s & 70s classics; plus Clermont's fiery Fiddle, Mandolin & Guitar. A soaring night - not to be missed. 

The Gospel of Pete:  http://www.petefidler.net/
Pete has been carving out a career as an in-demand musical sideman - known mainly for his dobro, or lap-style slide playing, however he also picks a mean guitar and mandolin and has a long and complicated relationship with the banjo... and, he doesn’t play fiddle.

He is a regular performer with singer/songwriter Bill Jackson, fingerstyle guitar maestro Nick Charles, traditional bluegrass band Bluestone Junction, The Davidson Brothers, Mustered Courage, Jimmy the Fish (with Liz Frencham and Robbie Long), and Gleny Rae Virus & her Bluegrass Playboys. He also previously held down the dobro chair in bluegrass bands The Somervilles, Sunshine Harvester, Big Bug Trio and Little Rabbit.

Pete’s recording session resumé is extensive and encompasses many different styles and artists. Recent recordings include Pete Denahy’s “Singing Shoes”, a dual Golden Guitar winner (Best Bluegrass Album, Best Instrumental), also Damian Howard’s “Ned”, Freya Josephine Hollick’s upcoming CD, “The Unceremonious Junking of Me” and a track on Liz Frencham’s “You & Me Vol 3”.

Pete released his debut solo CD, 'Slide Night' in 2008, a collection of original and classic bluegrass-flavoured tunes and songs featuring his slide playing and a huge line-up of guest artists.

After a long wait, 2016 brings Pete’s second solo project. “Buzz in the Room” is a collection of Pete played everything on the CD. 

The Gospel of Paul www.paulwookey.com.au
..is a gifted musician and possessor of one of the most acknowledged and diverse talents to have emerged in this country over the last 2 decades.
During this time Paul has shared the stage with & won accolades from a great many performers, including American Blues great John Hammond and Jimmy Witherspoon,( for whom he played guitar replacing Robin Ford), and Vince Gill, the No. 1 country singer in the U.S.

Although reasonably adept at an old country ballad, (Paul was a Gold Guitar winner at the Tamworth Country Music Festival in 1981!) his first love is the blues and old 50’s &60’s rock&roll.
Paul has toured with Mick Jagger, Joe Satriani, Jimmy Witherspoon, John Hammond, Charlie Musselwhite, Brownie McGee, Vince Gill, Jessie Winchester, Mark O’Connor, Dan Crary, Byron Berline, Albert Lee, Mickey Newbury, Ralph McTell… and the list goes on

And as according to Andrew Clermont
a nutso Fiddler, Mandolinist & 3 time Bluegrass Guitar Champ to boot - 30 years touring
- from  Brian Young to Tom T Hall; Dya Singh & BluGuru to Totally Gourdgeous; All Corners Covered and and now The HillBilly Goats
plus a Golden Fiddle Award director!
... not forgetting 20 years of the epic Supper Club at Tamworth CM & Woodford, National & WA's Fairbridge Folk Festivals!

COCK

online tickets available HERE

Stooged Theatre is thrilled to be making their debut at the Royal Exchange, staging the winner of the 2010 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement, Cock by Mike Bartlett.

"Exhilarating! Robust and rollicking. Mike Bartlett's dialogue crackles and pops..." —The New Yorker

"★★★★ When it’s funny it’s hilarious, and when it moves you, it’s a theatrical gut-punch." — Herald Sun

John needs a break from his needy boyfriend, he needs to find himself and he needs to be single.

John then meets the girl of his dreams.

Torn between the two, John flip flops between male and female, straight and gay, whatever he is. Full of guilt and indecision, John feels the pressure as, the truth be told, he doesn't know what he needs. And his boyfriend and new girlfriend need him to decide.

Wowing audiences in London, New York, Melbourne and Sydney, Mike Bartlett's Cock is a wild exploration of sexuality and ambivalence, and as lovers battle for their claim, we learn this is the ultimate cockfight.

Cock is directed by Mathew Lee (The Pillowman, Equus) and is assisted by Charlotte De Wit (Lord of the Flies).

LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE

 

The Lowbrow Outfit presents its debut performance, the devilishly dark comedy, 'The Lieutenant of Inishmore' By Martin McDonagh.

"Who knocked 'Mad Padraic's' cat over on a lonely road on the island of Inishmore and was it an accident? He'll want to know when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland; he loves his cat more than life itself.
"McDonagh's play is a hugely enjoyable black satire on the mindset that has led to cycles of violence and generations of misery in Ireland...this is a terrific play about a serious subject that's touched with a monty pythonesque insanity."
- Guardian
Starring:
Patrick Campbell, Cooper McDonald, Lindsay McDonald, Charlotte De Wit, Steve Wilson, Carl Gregory, Will Parker and Tyran Stig

 

Black cats, bicycles, madmen, nipples and toenails (or the lack of), bombs in chip shops, mum trampling, drug dealing, lonely roads, blind cows, dismembered terrorists, what more do you want?

Hanussen: Hitler’s Astrologer

Historical drama directed by István Szabó starring Klaus Maria
Brandauer, and Erland Josephson (Germany 1988, 140 min)
After the World War I, Schneider, a man with strong powers of
empathy and of clairvoyance, changes his name to Eric Jan
Hanussen and goes to Berlin, as a hypnotist and clairvoyant
performing in halls and theatres. He always speaks the truth, which
brings him to the attention of powerful Nazis. He predicts their rise
(good propaganda for them) and their violence (not so good). He's in
pain and at risk. What is Hanussen's future? (www.imdb.com).
