Slut by Patricia Cornelius

“The play is strong and delivers a range of forceful messages about society’s perception of women.” Artshub, Four Stars

“This production is emotionally moving, thought provoking and nostalgically entertaining by turns.” Artshub, Four Stars

“…there is rage, humour and insight in equal measure.” The West Australian

Only girls get called ‘sluts’.

Lolita develops early and knows exactly how to respond to the new way boys treat her.
But what happens when she embraces that label? It’s fun…for a while.

Drawing inspiration from a notorious Melbourne nightclub shooting, SLUT, by Patricia Cornelius, is an Awgie Award-winning play that turns the spotlight on the judgements made about women by the media and the public.

Scent Tales

“a little miracle… a perfectly realised production, its power rising like dough turning into bread in the hands of its cast and creative team.” The West Australian

“Whatever you do, and whether you’re eight or 80, don’t miss it.” The West Australian

“A total delight, freshly delivered at a pace that never stales, with a side order of baking puns sprinkled liberally throughout, Scent Tales is a short but sweet treat for the senses and sentiments.” Artshub, Four Stars

Inspired by a Nasruddin Hodja story, Scent Tales is a delicious-smelling story of coming to one’s senses.

An eccentric narrator weaves a bittersweet tale of a baker and her sister. Just how much is a memory worth? Would you pay for the smell of a fresh baked bread? Or is it priceless?

Enter the world created by debuting company Little y Theatre, a playful hyper-reality which will stimulate your senses in magical ways.

Be enchanted by the puppetry and poetry, delighted by the baked goods, and seduced by the Love Bread.

Baked my heart into these treats … mixed in my soul.”
