Medea. Two boys are playing a game. They fight, they laugh, they jump up and down, they play dead. Downstairs, their parents – Medea and Jason – are arguing. As the shouting gets louder, their bedroom will no longer be able to protect them from the violence of the outside world. Their iconic fate, at the hands of their mother, will ensure that they enter mythology as two of the most tragic siblings of all time. Medea is presented in association with Belvoir, Sydney and directed by Anne-Louise Sarks whose original production of the play was highly critically acclaimed. The production turns Euripides’ classic tale on its head – presenting the tragedy from the children’s perspective.

City Of Glass. “It was a wrong number that started it.” When reclusive crime writer Daniel Quinn receives a mysterious phone call from a man seeking a private detective in the middle of the night, he quickly and unwittingly becomes the protagonist in a real-life thriller of his own. He falls under the spell of a strange and seductive woman, who engages him to protect her young husband from his sociopathic father. As the familiar territory of the noir detective genre gives way to something altogether more disturbing and unpredictable, Quinn becomes consumed by his mission, and begins to lose his grip on reality. Will he be drawn deeper into the abyss, or could the quest provide the purpose and meaning he needs to rebuild his shattered life?

Pitcairn. ‘It is as if we find ourselves at the beginning of time...’ It’s 1789. Ideas of revolution and democracy are in the air. In the South Pacific, Fletcher Christian overthrows Captain Bligh in the famous mutiny on The Bounty. With the ship’s crew and their Tahitian lovers and followers, Christian sails to the fertile and remote island of Pitcairn. But his dream of creating a society of equals is blown off course: by the greed and suspicions of the sailors, and by the Tahitian’s adherence to their hierarchy and traditions. With salty humour and growing horror, and inspired by littleknown events, Richard Bean charts a colony’s descent from a new Eden to a brutal dystopia.

A Doll S House. Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House premiered in 1879 in Copenhagen, the second in a series of realist plays by Ibsen, and immediately provoked controversy with its apparently feminist message and exposure of the hypocrisy of Victorian middle-class marriage. In Ibsen's play, Nora Helmer has secretly (and deceptively) borrowed a large sum of money to pay for her husband, Torvald, to recover from illness on a sabbatical in Italy. Torvald's perception of Nora is of a silly, naive spendthrift, so it is only when the truth begins to emerge, and Torvald appreciates the initiative behind his wife, that unmendable cracks appear in their marriage.
