Jersey Boys is a musical biography of The Four Seasons - the rise, the tough times, the personal clashes and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic and the soundtrack for a generation. Set in the vibrant 1960s, four scrappy young men from New Jersey - Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Nick Massi and Tommy DeVito find a magic sound that propels them from singing under streetlights to singing in spotlights and on stages all over the world. With era defining songs like “Sherry”,"Big Girls Don't Cry" and "Walk Like a Man”, the quartet finds itself at the top of the charts. However, personal and professional problems threaten to tear the group apart. The heart of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honour learned in the streets of their native Belleville gets four unlikely stars through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters. Jersey Boys gives audiences a glimpse at the real people behind a sound that has endured for almost 50 years.
There are three things that have divided this nation… Conscription, Whitlam and Lindy Chamberlain. The words are spoken by an unnamed librarian in Alana Valentine’s finely-wrought play Letters to Lindy as he stacks some of the 20 000 letters that Lindy Chamberlain received during her ordeal of being tried, incarcerated, then exonerated of killing her baby Azaria. The words, delivered matter-of-factly towards the end of the play, serve as an historical epitaph to an intimate and epic docu-drama spanning more than 20 years, from Azaria’s death near Uluru in 1980 to the 2012 coronial ruling that finally ended the legal saga. The starting point of Valentine’s passionate inquiry came in the form of 199 boxes of correspondence at the National Library of Australia; a staggering archive from which the playwright has constructed an intricate, truthful, and deeply human account of a case which captured the public’s imagination from the moment Lindy Chamberlain uttered the words, ‘A dingo’s got my baby’. For here was an apparent murder mystery combining potent myths of the Australian outback, Aboriginal folklore, baffling cult-like ‘characters’ and elements of Greek tragedy. It was a time when the worst excesses of tabloid sensationalism fuelled an unthinking, sometimes brutal, spectator sport. Australia hadn’t seen anything like it.

Thomas Novachek is auditioning actresses to star in his new play, an adaptation of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s Venus in Furs, the 1870 novel that inspired the word masochism. So far Thomas has found no-one up to playing his lead, Vanda. He’s about to give up when a sexy, brash and seemingly clueless actress barges in and demands an audition. Her name? Vanda. As a storm descends on the city outside, Thomas and Vanda embark on a journey that will challenge him and define her. Venus in Fur is spellbinding and kinky, hilarious and frightening, seductive and brilliant. Just like Vanda. And the Lord hath smitten him and delivered him into a woman’s hands …
