Synopsis: Boeing Boeing is now boarding, so fasten your seatbelts for this rollicking fast moving farce.

Set in the 1960's, this comedy follows the tale of Bernard who ingeniously juggles his three stewardess girlfriends by arranging it so their layovers do not overlap, keeping each women unaware of the others.

His plans begin to unravel with the introduction of faster jets, bringing all three girls to his apartment at the same time. In a hysterical whirlwind of mayhem, Bernard finds out that one woman is all he can handle.

In 1991, the play was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the most performed French play throughout the world.

Synopsis: Many will know this story from Peter Weir's classic film of the novel, which was released in 1975. The play, adapted by Tom Wright from Joan Lindsay’s 1967 novel, is narrated by five performers, 'five Australian women', who are named in the published script after the actors who played them in the first production. They are struggling to solve the mystery at the heart of Joan Lindsay's original novel, which presents itself as the true story of the disappearance of three schoolgirls and their teacher, who inexplicably vanish into the mountainside, while on a picnic expedition to Hanging Rock in Victoria on Valentine’s Day, 1900. Euphoria and terror reverberate throughout the community, as the potential for history to repeat itself becomes nightmarishly real.

Synopsis: “A comedy about getting lucky in space and time.” Rupert Knox wants two things in life: to make the astronomical discovery of the new millennium and to find a date to his sister’s wedding. He might
have found both in Claire, a celestial poet getting over an interstellar break-up. But when a mysterious woman named Elaine shows up at Rupert’s door with an offer of her own, these star-crossed losers –sorry, lovers– will have to make big choices about mortality, true love and whether to stick with vodka or switch to beer.

Synopsis: A tender-hearted comedy drama set in Sydney in the 1950s. A musical which tells the story of bookish school-leaver Lisa who joins the sales staff in a prestigious department store. Over a summer that changes her life, she befriends the colourful staff members of the women’s clothing department, including her new mentor, the exotic Magda, mysterious mistress of Model Gowns. Each of the characters are on the precipice of change - facing independence, working for a living and what it means to be a woman. The original music by superstar Tim Finn will have you singing long after you leave the theatre.
