Desperately eager to stimulate his cast to their best efforts, he has deliberately withheld the final scene of the play from them, but his patience is worn thin by the petty jealousies and romantic rivalries that detract from their concentration. In an effort to spur them on he stages the murder of the actresses, after which the plot begins to twist and turn with such dazzling ingenuity and hilarity.

by David Ives

Directed by Nathan Schulz

We are introduced to Carole when she is 16 and pitching her first song (“It Might As Well Rain Until September”) to New York music producer Don Kirshner. Soon after, she meets her future husband and creative collaborator, Gerry Goffin. In a musical whirlwind, the couple are married, King gives birth to their first child and the duo make a name for themselves in the music business, knocking out hit after hit. However, while their careers are on the rise, Carole’s personal life falls apart when Gerry announces that he wants an affair.

Although they all compete for number one hits on the pop chart, Carole relies on their support to change her life and find her own voice. Set in the vibrant pop industry of the 1960s and early 1970s, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical features a tapestry of musical hits from the creative songwriting teams of King and Goffin, Weil and Mann.

VENUS IN FUR by David Ives

Gold Coast Performance

Motet Creative Studios - \

Unit 3/10 Kamholtz Ct, Molendinar QLD 4212, Australia

Venus in Fur will be appearing in The Anywhere Festival for 5 shows only! If you missed the 3 shows in February at Motet Creative Studios, this is your chance to see it again, as The Drama Merchant and his cast embrace the Anywhere Festival’s premise of “Theatre anywhere but on a stage” and perform the show in three vastly different locations between Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

The play is inspired by the 1870 novel by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch and is set present day involving a playwright and director who is casting actresses for his adaption of the book Venus in Fur and meets Wanda, who is auditioning for the role of Vanda Dunayev. An audition takes place and as the two characters bounce lines off each other and discuss the play’s themes, the relationship between the two becomes ambiguous and blurred. It is sexy, funny, thought-provoking and YES we are talking about BDSM. But this is so much more than a kink story as the play is exceptionally multi-layered and raises many subjects, many of which are especially relevant in the world of today.​

Until the 9th May we have an opening week limited special. Tickets for $17.50p.p. using the code VENUSFLASH50.

If you missed the show in Feb, now is the chance to see it before the season comes to a close.

Tickets can be purchased on https://anywhere.is/events/list/?tribe-bar-search=Venus+in+fur

A mother and father, who lost their 4-year-old daughter to abductors in a playground 14 years ago, relive the all-consuming grief that has become an overwhelming and inerasable reality in their lives. It has destroyed their marriage and, in an avalanche of self-recrimination and blame, they attempt to deal with their sorrow in separate monologues in a park where the crime occurred. While their pain is palpable, there is also an element of acceptance of the tragedy as they hesitantly try to come to terms with their loss.
