Blancmange Productions has done it again with their 2016 season opener The Punter’s Siren, on now until March 5th at The World Bar in Sydney. The play is short, sweet, and to the point, and is accompanied by nothing more than simplistic staging, talented performances, and some of the most refreshing and wittiest play writing…

We can all relate to the struggle that teachers go through when they try to teach history. Things that have happened in the past can often be a bore and leave students feeling uninspired. So, when you set out to create a “period piece” of sorts i.e. a history lesson presented on the live theatre…

From the first moment I entered the building, I knew that I was in for a memorable night. The entire venue—including the foyer—was luridly and gloriously adorned. Amongst the decor were several blow-up flamingos, lots of plastic cupcakes and miscellaneous neon-coloured props scattered everywhere. In the middle of the performance space sat a small tub…
