PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: KILL CLIMATE DENIERS

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: KILL CLIMATE DENIERS

My favourite things at age eighteen: theatre, environmentalism and satire. So obviously Kill Climate Deniers instantly become a must-see for me. I was super keen to be handed a ‘how to defeat climate change’ handbook, and go on to save the world. Even though I left the theatre without a definitive answer of how to assure the planet’s survival, what I did leave with was way more powerful. 

Reality.

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: LOVE, SIMON

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: LOVE, SIMON
A generation mouthpiece for all young people and especially for those a part of the LGBTQ community. The emotionally moving Love, Simon represents our current societal concern amongst bullying and acceptance. This is a crucial piece of film that uproots the primitive school system of the ‘standard’ cultural image of relationships. I like to believe that this film contributes vastly to the new wave of LGBTQ cinema...

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: AN ACT OF GOD

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: AN ACT OF GOD
An Act of God dissects religion and its follies in 75 minutes of divine performance, music and satirical humour. The show gathers the vital commandments of theological virtue and recounts a misunderstood history. Based on David Javerbaum’s comedic novel ‘The Last Testament: A Memoir by God.’ He has adapted it to theatre and constructed his ideas without fear into this satirical romp that enlightens and broadens common ideals. Although this particular showing at the Eternity Playhouse played a fun-loving localised version, ensuring the messages and jokes were optimised for the Australian audience.

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: RIOT

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: RIOT

"I’ve always liked the idea of the theatre. The smell of the grease, the roar of the paint. I’ve often thought if I hadn’t ended up in computers, I would've gone into the theatre.” As Moss from the IT crowd tells us, live performances are certainly an entertaining attraction. So, needless to say, I was very excited on seeing Irish variety show RIOT, albeit in a Spiegeltent. With the promise of live music; exciting camp retro visuals; and a lil' sprinkle of the obscene, it seemed like the perfect live performance for me... 

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: FAG/STAG

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: FAG/STAG
FAG/STAG vaguely explores an idea that probably isn’t true, but has been imposed on me my whole life through sitcoms: You don’t want to be single in your late twenties...

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: THREE SISTERS

PLAYWAVE CREATIVE REVIEW: THREE SISTERS

It’s not about Three Sisters, it’s about one person and that’s you.

Before I say anything I need to really heavily disclaim one thing: I had never heard of Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov before seeing this STC rendition of it. Oops. So although it’s a classic I have absolutely no knowledge of the form it originally took - I know, that’s super classy of me. A bit embarrassing, but it’s not my fault they don’t teach us about international art in school!
