About

Australian Booty Saturday 16 March 7.30pm

Candy B’s Australian Booty is an entertaining mix of comedy, social commentary and of course booty shaking! From the Afro-Aussie sisters behind international smash hit Hot Brown Honey, comes a more intimate, yet fiercely powerful show about self-love. In a sumptuous hour of jokes, stories, music and spoken word this radical babe weighs in on the Australian identity, interracial dating, Aussie TV and the beauty myth. Candy B is political, poetic and a little bit naughty in this riotous one-woman romp about her rump. Set to a killer sound track created by her big sister the notorious Busty Beatz, Australian Booty will slam, shake and tickle you all the way to the dance floor. WARNING- Side effects may include uncontrollable booty shaking and higher self-esteem.

Warning - Australian Booty a little naughty so best enjoyed by adult audiences (16+ with guardians.)

Enter Ophelia Tuesday 30 April 7.30pm

Enter Ophelia is a darkly funny gothic riff centering Shakespeare’s iconic drowned damsel into the spotlight of Denmark, where Ophelia must question and navigate the darkest corners and secrets of her world in order to take charge of her own fate.

With direction from critically acclaimed director John Kachoyan & striking design by some of Melbourne’s finest creatives, Enter Ophelia promises to be a punchy, dark and thrilling exploration of femininity, isolation and silliness. You too will be lured into the heightened and absurd world of Shakespeare’s Denmark.

Swansong Tuesday 21 May 8pm

Swansong is an award winning Irish monodrama written by acclaimed writer/director Connor McDermottroe. Meet Occi Byrne, the illegitimate child of a single mother in the Catholic west of Ireland. Shunned by church, state and family, Occi must fight his way to adulthood in a dog eat dog world. Violent, tragic and hauntingly tender, Swansong is the story of a lost soul from one of the masters of Irish drama.

When he was young, Austin (Occi) Byrne was tormented by the recurring rhyming taunts of the local bullies who were relentlessly cruel in the fact that Occi had no father. As he grows older, within the closed ecclesiastical communities of 1970’s, those taunts escalate in his delicate mind into a chorus. Occi’s quest to find his father becomes core to his identity; but his mother – all but shunned by her parents and the local community, keeps this secret. Narrated through Occi’s wayward world view, his story unfolds as a series of chaotic encounters, tempered by moments of tenderness and longing.
