RAW: STC’s Three Sisters – Anton Chekhov – Playhouse – 3K

Three Sisters – Great play, fine cast, pity about the staging and direction. 3K

After an extensive European tour, world-renowned Australian Dance Theatre returns home to the Adelaide stage with the world premiere of its new work, Worldhood, by Garry Stewart featuring Thom Buchanan with TAFE SA Adelaide College of the Arts, from 10 – 13 August at Her Majesty’s Theatre.

RAW: Misery – Bakehouse Theatre Company – 4K – Til 6th August

Very likely to be independent theatre’s highlight of the year, so go see during this Misery’s last week. 4K

RAW: In Conversation With – The Significance of Indigenous Art In Contemporary Society – 1K

After fulsomely praising the merits of the second in this year’s series of In Conservation With, hosted by the ABC’s Fenella Kernebone, my expectations of enthralling debate about the role of indigenous art were high. Sadly, it all got off to a very bad start.

RAW: Speaking In Tongues – 4.5K

The potential for human folly, for the search for something beyond what is more than adequate is well explored in Andrew Bovell’s 1996 classic Speaking In Tongues now brilliantly revived and presented by the State Theatre Company. 4.5K

RAW: Innocence – Accidental Productions – 4K

While laced with moments that are harsh, sweet, funny, cruel, dark and light, Innocence is probably best enjoyed by committed theatregoers who will respond with enthusiasm to the play and the players’ performances.

RAW: Cabaret Festival – The Jitterbug Club – 3K

The Hoodoo Emporium’s Jitterbug Club is like a late-night underground 1930s jazz club in New York. It’s cheeky and kitsch.

RAW: Cabaret Festival – Amy Housewine: Back to Crack – Banquet Room – 4K

Just how many songs changed to be about drugs can be funny in a row? Performer Lisa Adam, and co-writer Trevor Ashley, have structured the evening well to ensure this doesn’t get old. Adam has a wonderful voice, certainly matching the vocal talents of the lady that is her inspiration. 4K

RAW: Cabaret Festival – Storm Large – 4.5K

One was perhaps unprepared for a dose of biographical outpouring by the ‘sexually omnivorous’ American Storm Large. Not sure too many of the audience were but they sure as hell got their money’s worth. 4.5K
