I Hope it’s Not Raining in London is a contemporary, hybrid- experimental work in its exploration of our perceived realities and the effects of trauma.

Neither of them has knowledge of where they currently exist and how they got there- and the newest to arrive has no memories whatsoever.

Picasso and His Dog is inspired by the true life story of Pablo Picasso and his sausage dog Lump. This delightful show celebrates the animals with whom we share our lives while exploring what it is to be creative and to create.
Created by Lemony S Puppet Theatre, this work is an inventive mix of live art-making on-stage, puppetry and magic realism. Picasso and His Dog is about how the animals in our lives can inspire us to be excellent humans (and artists).

Have you ever built a… FoRT? …
The wonderful crew at Asking for Trouble delve into the art of play and the creation of worlds from everyday objects.
Two strange characters appear hunting for whispers of adventure. A couch, table, cushions, sheets and broomsticks transform into rockets, trampolines, cliffs and tents - places to explore. Images appear and disappear. FoRT is full of ridiculous clowning, spectacular acrobatics, poetic visual imagery and celebrates the kind of creative genius that has been known to turn lounge rooms into volcanoes, trees into castles and cardboard boxes into racing cars.

This hilarious cabaret from Amity Dry (author of the musical ‘Mother, Wife and the Complicated Life’) was a sell-out success at last year’s Adelaide Fringe and is sure to be a great girls night out. From her childhood home perm to the eve of her 40th birthday Amity explores the pressure women face to maintain the beauty ideal and how social media, Botox and the Kardashians have forever altered the quest for eternal youth. She pokes fun at her '80s childhood and '90s teen exploits, and questions whether 40 is the new 30 or just something you say to make you feel better.
Paul David Goddard leads the cast as Sherlock Holmes and the woman he admires is played by Lucy Gransbury.
