OUR TOWN
by Thornton Wilder

Directed by Peter Newling

An irrefutable classic of the American theatre.  A work of humanity and warmth.  The story of the people who live in a small town called Grover's Corner, in New Hampshire.  We follow the Gibbs and Webb families through twelve years of life changes from secret wishes and disappointments, loves and losses.  Through the young lovers Emily and George, their strong and loving parents, and the many other Grover's Corners' friends and neighbours, Thornton Wilder delivers universal truths about what it means to be human.  With humour, wit, and exceptionally powerful storytelling.  Our Town offers a unique opportunity for audience members to make precisely that realisation.

MORNING SACRIFICE
by Dymphna Cusack

Directed by Loretta Bishop

First performed in 1942, Morning Sacrifice has since become a classic of Australian theatre.  It is set over a three-day period in the staff room of East Haven Girls' High School in Sydney and exposes the narrow-minded education system of the 1930s.  It centres on the increasing bitter struggle within a group of teachers, a mix of conservatives and progressives, over the fate of a senior student accused of immoral behaviour where expulsion will destroy the student's chance of going to university.  A fascinating study in day to day routine which is stripped away to reveal a hall of horrors, built on hypocracy.

DEAD MAN'S CELL PHONE
by Sarah Ruhl

Directed by Bruce Cochrane

Jean is innocently sitting in a café when a man's cell phone rings and keeps on ringing.  The man doesn't answer because, as the title suggests, he's dead.  She keeps his phone in order to keep him alive in a strange yet significant way and ends up stuck in the middle of all his troubles, meeting his widow, his mother, his brother and his mistress.  At Gordon's funeral, she creates confabulations about his last moments which brings closure and peace to Gordon's family.  The play takes its most bizarre turn when Jean discovers that he was in no way the saint she had imagined.

TARANTARA! TARANTARA!
by Ian Taylor

Directed by Andrew Ferguson

The play tells the story of two unlikely partners who were brought together long enough for the world to receive one of the greatest musical gifts it has ever known.  The famous Gilbert and Sullivan partnership: the meeting, the association with D'Oyly Carte, the mounting success, the divergences of temperament and conflicting ambitions, Gilbert's obsession with his 'lizenge' story and the trouble it caused, Sullivan's lavish social life and its disruptive consequences, his ill health, the famous tragi-comic quarrel over a new carpet for the theatre - these and many other episodes are covered.  Musical excerpts from the well-known operas are threaded into the story.
