Season running 22-25 June

SYNOPSIS:

THAT Production Company are bringing their multi-award nominated, critically acclaimed production of Sea Wall by Simon Stephens to Brisbane. Director, Timothy Wynn (Matilda Award nominee for Best Director) will once again team up with Steven Rooke (Matilda Award nominee for Best Actor) to bring his tour-de-force performance of this one man show to the New Benner Theatre.

“There’s a hole running through the centre of my stomach. You must have all felt a bit awkward because you can probably see it.”

Meet Alex: doting father, loving husband, loyal son, gentle soul. Spend an evening listening to his story, wading through musings of family, spirituality, art, doubt, love, and loss, between crashing waves of tragedy and hope.

Sea Wall was written by award-winning writer Simon Stephens (Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time) for Andrew Scott (Sherlock, Fleabag).

With wry humour and resolute honesty, Sea Wall is a delicate, unforgettable, and intimate confession, at once brutal and beautiful.

In Cinemas JUNE 9

SYNOPSIS:

Sassoon was a complex man who survived the horrors of fighting in the First World War and was decorated for his bravery but who became a vocal critic of the government’s continuation of the war when he returned from service. His poetry was inspired by his experiences on the Western Front and he became one of the leading war poets of the era. Adored by members of the aristocracy as well as stars of London’s literary and stage world, he embarked on affairs with several men as he attempted to come to terms with his homosexuality. At the same time, broken by the horror of war, he made his life’s journey a quest for salvation, trying to find it within the conformity of marriage and religion.

His story is one of a troubled man in a fractured world searching for peace and self-acceptance, something which speaks as meaningfully to the modern world as it did then.

SYNOPSIS:

In 19th century Italy, young PINOCCHIO is brought to life by a brilliant woodcarver Maestro Jepetto, but sadly runs away from his master’s home, eager to see the world.

He teams up with TIBALT, his friend the horse, and comes across a travelling circus, with the cunning MODJAFOCCO as its director and puppet master. Having made the talking puppet PINOCCHIO the highlight of the show, he sells out in every town, while his minions CAT and FOX rob the houses of those who attend his shows.

However, PINNOCHIO is clueless about this. He falls in love with BELLA, a gymnast and MODJAFOCCO ‘s foster daughter. He can’t hope she reciprocates as he’s only a doll, not a real human being.  FANTOZZI, who works as a clown at the circus, gives PINOCCHIO a good piece of advice: he tells him to seek the help of a witch that goes by the name of LUCILDE.  Scared, but filled with hope, PINOCCHIO sets out on an incredible trip in his quest to become a real boy.
