Returning home from a bloody but victorious battle, Macbeth is met by the Weird Sisters who foretell that he will become King of Scotland. Emboldened by this prediction, the Macbeths take fate into their own hands, murder King Duncan and take the crown.

But the crown sits uneasily and their initial act of ambition and unquenchable desire for power set off a catastrophic series of events that once in motion, cannot be stopped.

THREE NIGHTS ONLY

SYNOPSIS:

The Bluff transports you to a seaside town at the bottom of Australia, where ladies gather in the tearoom of the church charity shop as their familiar world whirls around them like clockwork. When the pillar of the town Charles Fortsmith goes missing, his wife is left to face the community he left behind. She must decide between hope and truth, undeterred by the watchful eye of righteous neighbours.

Watch as the salty air erodes the town’s comfortable facade, and the grotesque underbelly is revealed. An examination of what we bury to be part of something bigger than ourselves.

From the team at Viral Ventures (Beyond Cinema, Wonderland Bar, The Wizard’s Den) comes an exciting theatrical production like no other.

Inspired by the book by F. Scott Fitzgerald, an immersive adaption of the story has been created that will blur the boundaries of conventional theatre and will allow audiences to explore and immerse themselves into the world of The Great Gatsby through a choose-your-own-adventure-style production that will make everyone’s experience personal and unique.

Ticket-holders inhabit the character of Nick Carroway, as he tells the tragic love story of 1922. A fable of the Jazz Age, of enchantment and illusion, of a world where love and dreams are pursued and betrayed. 

Led by an ensemble cast of the highest calibre Australian actors, this production will offer audiences the opportunity to experience the story of Gatsby as they have never seen it before.

Expect secret rendezvous, dramatic confrontations, bootleg gin and a party that only Gatsby could throw.

Your tickets include the following:

– 2 hours and 20mins of incredible immersive theatre

– Opportunity to explore secret worlds and rooms

– Some of Australia’s finest acting talent

“Action that works from every angle…It is a thoroughly entertaining experience. But is it theatre? Actually, yes.” – Sydney morning Herald

ONE NIGHT ONLY

SYNOPSIS:

After being dumped, Genie embarks on a 12 week challenge to improve her health and well-being. This quest pushes her to be faced with dodgy diets, quacky influencers, toxic friends and swamp juice. The lines between healthy and unhealthy begin to blur. Loved ones become concerned, but Genie’s sidekick always has an excuse ready. To save herself, Genie must uncover the true meaning of health, and cut ties with a very toxic friend. This absurd, dramatic comedy explores the effects of diet and influencer culture on young people. Detox helps viewers understand the beginnings of eating disorders and how diet and influencer culture allow these illnesses to flourish undetected.

Sprinkled throughout are goofy songs and balanced with verbatim statements from people who have been affected by diet and wellness culture. Formerly Bourke & Heather, Minerva TheatreCo.are passionate about discussing uncomfy things through comedy. Premiering at the 2022 Anywhere Festival, Detox was critically acclaimed-many audience members urged Minerva to spread Detox’s message far and wide. Detox has been extended and adapted to be more relatable to all genders and is described as “an effective takedown of diet culture” (TheatreHaus,2022).

There, QSE’s Shorts’ actors will transform Shakespeare’s most popular works into highly physical, bite-size fun where th audience chooses which short makes the stage! You won’t see that anywhere else!

“10/10, it was a lovely high energy and exciting night!” – Audience member
“An easily accessible professional production.” – Audience member

Now, after thriving from the opportunities and support from one Brisbane festival, Shakespeare Pick and (re)Mix is back for Brisbane’s new Fringe Festival! No matter which story is chosen, there will be guaranteed hijinks, musical interludes, dance numbers, and wooden-sword-wheeling for audiences to enjoy and delivered with the ensemble’s trademark clarity and accessibility.
