    A CABARET ABOUT LIFE AS A NEURODIVERGENT AND MENTALLY ILL YOUNG PERSON, WHICH IS BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN WITH STIRRING MUSIC AND BOTH FUNNY AND MOVING LYRICS. GRACE IS A (SELF-PROCLAIMED) AWKWARD BUT ALSO AMAZING PERFORMER, WITH A STUNNING VOICE AND QUIRKY PHYSICALITY. I PARTICULARLY LOVED THE VERY INTENSE BUT ACCURATE DEPICTION OF ANXIETY/ PANIC ATTACK WHEN TRYING TO ANSWER A PHONE.

    HIGH PONY - Mel & Sam smize down the barrel of the camera. They are dressed in Marie Antoinette-esque garb, with neck ruffles and opulent jewellery. They each sport a ridiculously long high pony tail on their heads and have coral and blue graphic eyeliner on.

A CLASSIC FRINGE SHOW.

    THIS SHOW BY THE HAIRY GODMOTHER'S IS A BIT LESS UPBEAT TO THEIR OTHERS, EXAMINING THE FEMALE EXPERIENCE FROM OUR SEXUAL ORGANS TO BODY IMAGE TO MOTHERHOOD, THROUGH DANCE, SKITS. POETRY, AND SONG. IT WAS SO EMPOWERING TO WATCH ON IWD!

    A GREAT QUALITY THEATRE PRODUCTION FOR A COMPANY MADE UP OF INTERNATIONAL HIGH SCHOOLERS - IT IS A COMBINATION OF TWO PLAYS ABOUT CONTROL AND OPPRESSION OF WOMEN BY ELDER GENERATIONS (TIMELY CONSIDERING IT WAS IWD WHEN I TOOK MY ALL GIRLS CLASS TO SEE IT. TOLD IN DUAL LANGUAGES OF ENGLISH AND CHINESE, AND USING PHYSICAL THEATRE AND EXPRESSIONISM TO STYLISE IT. THE PERFORMANCES WERE SOLID AND PRODUCTION VALUE WAS STRONG!
    Distopia - A man and a woman stand close together looking like they've been in a fight recently (covered with wounds and bruises). The man is holding a hockey stick, and the woman is holding up a shovel. They both look ready to fight zombies.

    A MAGICAL AND MANIACAL PIECE OF (MUSICAL THEATRE. WITH A VERY COOL CONCEPT AT ITS CORE. THE SCRIPT IS HILARIOUS, SMATTERED WITH CLEVER REFERENCES TO DISNEY, AND THE SONGS ARE BOTH ORIGINAL AND WELL KNOWN FROM DISNEY. THIS SHOW ABOUT FRIENDSHIP IS AMAZINGLY PERFORMED, PROBABLY BECAUSE IT IS PERFORMED BY THE TWO BEST FRIENDS WHO WROTE IT...

    ANOTHER INSTALLMENT IN THE HAIRY GODMOTHER'S UNIVERSE THAT FOLLOWS THEIR (AND DISNEY'S) USUAL FORMULA - A PLOT FOLLOWING ONE CHARACTER ON A JOURNEY OF SELF DISCOVERY WITH IMPORTANT MESSAGES FOR AUDIENCES THROUGHOUT. THE COMPANY ONCE AGAIN CLEVERLY REWRITES DISNEY SONGS, USES MAGNIFICENT COSTUMES AND LIGHTING, AND ENSURES THERE'S PLENTY OF LAUGHS. THERE WAS SOME TIGHTENING TO BE DONE HOWEVER, WITH ONE PERFORMER FORGETTING THE WORDS TO THEIR SONG.
    Josh Thomas - Let's Tidy Up - Josh is wearing a stripy top that is purple, orange and maroon. He is in a bathroom and looking into a mirror. The background is a pale blue.

    A PIECE OF THEATRE WITH A SAD PREMISE, BUT COMEDIC GENUINE DIALOGUE TO EASE AUDIENCES IN, AND FAMILIAR SONG AND DANCE AS STORYTELLING TOOLS. MANY INTERSECTIONAL EXPERIENCES ARE WORKED INTO THE NARRATIVE, WHICH IS ACTED WITH RESTRAINT AND RAWNESS BY THE PAIR OF ACTORS.
