CALENDAR GIRLS

By Tim Firth

Directed by Helen Madden

 

SYNOPSIS: When Annie's husband John dies of leukaemia, she and her long-standing best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. With varying levels of encouragement, they persuade four friends and fellow members of the Women’s Institute (W.I.) to pose nude with them for an "alternative" calendar.  Tim Firth’s hilarious play is based on the true story of eleven W.I. members who famously posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund in 1999

THE APPLETON LADIES POTATO RACE

By Melanie Tate

Directed by Louise Haggerty

SYNOPSIS: A comedy-drama full of laughs, heartache and big questions is coming to Tamborine Mountain Little Theatre in March 2022. This is an engaging story of 5 diverse women set in a small Australian country town written with panache and wit by author Melanie Tait (ABC and Guardian journalist) and first premiered to acclaim in 2019 at Sydney’s Ensemble Theatre. What starts as a feel-good story with the return of local girl from success in the big city rapidly develops into a close look at how modern Australia views and deals with (or not) the big issues of sexual preference, gender politics and choices, immigration, racism and the relevance of women - all captured through the prism of the local Potato Race at the “Show” where the men’s race prize is $1000, and the women’s is $200. The lines are drawn - and nobody’s feelings are spared.

A Black Box intimate event with a limited seating of 40

VENUE: TBA Molendinar, QLD

SYNOPSIS: Frankenstein 'or' The Modern Prometheus’ has been heavily regarded as a masterpiece for the ages, shedding harsh light on mankind and what it means to be human.The show centres around famous author, Mary Shelley.  In the show, we see Shelley at her wits end battling the internal implications of love and loss. Many of the themes seen clearly in the novel are present in Mary’s life including betrayal, neglect and isolation. Shelley herself takes the topics of nature, nurture, morality and the anomalies of life to create a piece of work that truly encapsulates what it’s like to be lonely as well as what it's like to be different in a cruel and dreary world.
