NORM'S by Alex Lee-Rekers

Late night at Norm's: a roadside cafe so beaten by years of traffic and not-traffic its era is impossible to determine. The decor is faded lino and vinyl and cool, desert air circulates through a pedestal fan that clangs against the jukebox with every oscillation. Waitress Karen dreams about Venice while her one regular, Cal, sips his beer and listens to her speak. In a nearby booth, young couple Bea and Sam are snuggled together, fast asleep. And outside--somewhere between the parking lot lamps and the black of the highway--two figures prepare to deliver life-altering news to those inside...


Norm's is a new Australian play about science and progress, good and evil and peanut butter pie.

Cast includes Toby Blome, Laura Djanegara, Ariadne Sgouros, Chris Miller, Nathalie Murray

Blue Heart by Caryl Churchill

sunday 15 OCTOBER 2017

Directed by Benjamin Sheen

With: Enya Daly, Nic English, Vaishnavi Suryaprakash, Kyle Kaczmarczyk, Eliza Scott, Laura Charlotte, Kate Cheel and Emma Kew.

Heart’s Desire: Brian and his wife Alice, together with Brian's sister Maisie, are waiting for the arrival of their daughter Susy, who is returning home after some years spent in Australia. A simple domestic scenario is replayed over and over with widely differing developments – some heartbreaking, some wildly comical or surreal.

Blue Kettle: a middle-aged man, Derek, and his girlfriend, Enid, are involved in a con trick, making a series of elderly women believe that Derek is the son they once gave up for adoption. But as the situation develops, the play's dialogue undergoes a radical distortion with characters using the words 'blue' and 'kettle', apparently at random, and to an extent that grows increasingly disruptive.

A darkly funny farce, a cubist nightmare of overlapping realities. In von Meyerburg’s nightmarish, sadistic and masochistic world, power is with the men. Until, that is, the tables are decisively, violently turned…
