Little y Theatre Company and What She Said present
“Garvey gets to play to her strengths here; she’s funny and quirky… Throughout this gossamery piece we are anchored by Bower’s soothing narration” Perth Culture
“Chris Donnelly’s lighting design is especially pleasing when combined with the show’s other atmospheric elements like disco balls, a smoke machine and the pulsing lights emitted from the girls’ mobile phones.”Perth Culture
“It is a wonderfully stylised work; with a fluffy set and costumes full of colour” The AU Review
“Both Garvey and Ayas give energetic and effusive performances” The AU Review
“a creative and entertaining work” The AU Review
Two girls live in a house. They’re blonde besties. Boys, jobs, roaches…nothing can come between them. They spend their days looking for love apps, five-year planning and trying for the perfect selfie. But things turn sour as life creeps up on them.
A performative response to Barbara Baynton’s The Chosen Vessel, Rabbithead is a darkly comic look at when BFFs attack.
Directed by Ian Sinclair (The Little Mermaid) with a soundtrack by hot local DJ Catlips, produced by Georgia King ( Little y Theatre Company – Second Hands) and featuring Fringe World Emerging Artist Award winner Violette Ayad and Holly Garvey, RabbitHead is a modern day fable that’s more Snowtown than Snow White.

The Blue Room Theatre Summer Nights and Little y Theatre Company with PICA presents
“genuinely funny, genuinely sharp, dinner-table dialogue” The West Australian
“It’s a well-conceived dystopia that allows Fowler to explore greed, vanity, the bounds of friendship and the possibility of love, and he does it with insight and clear vision.” The West Australian
“The dialogue fairly crackles with delicious venom.” The West Australian
“A clever allegory for much of our consumer society, Second Hands is an intriguing and interesting piece of theatre.” Stage Whispers
A new pair of hands is the perfect complement to a woman who exudes self-confidence.
Bolstering professionalism while radiating magnetism, fashion hands add extra panache to any ensemble.
Patrice suffers boredom while serving well heeled housewives. Jayden is desperate for normalcy. Mel finds joy in innocent pleasure. Anna and her husband Otto are stuck in a horrific battle…about canapés.
Written and directed by Jeffrey Jay Fowler (Minnie and Mona, Martin Sims winner 2013), developed and performed by Austin Castiglione, Holly Garvey, Georgia King and Renee Newman-Storen, Second Hands tells a delicately interlocking story of suburban ennui, the staleness of monogamy, and the ceaseless desire everyone has for a new pair of hands.

The Office of Dead Letters
"Enchanting" Time Out
"The music may leave you humming on the street." Time Out
"packs a sentimental punch... you hope to find something in your mailbox when you get home" Time Out
"Devised with heart by a group of physically skilled actors" nytheatre.com
"The missives provide insight into broken communications and unfulfilled lives spanning the globe and history." nytheatre.com
“The Office of Dead letters is a performance guaranteed to invoke spectacular imagery, emotion and performance. It is simply a must-see among new and innovative productions.” allevents.in
“A piece of the sky fell and cracked my soul in half. “
Watch six quirky-clowny creatures bring dead letters to life; letters that may have been lost at sea, burned by deviants, never sent, only dreamed about or ripped apart – all with one thing in common: they never reached their intended.
With a mix of surreal physical theatre and realistic revelations of humanity you are sure to revel in this journey throughout history witnessing untold stories, heartfelt messages and ridiculous complaints. A metaphor for the collective unconscious of society.
“I am very homesick. I repeat, I am very homesick. This is the worst memory of my childhood.”

The Blue Room Theatre Summer Nights, Little y Theatre Company and theMOXYcollective present
“Nothing in the Blue Room’s Summer Nights fringe-within-the Fringe season has been more intriguing than Public Space” The West Australian
"the Cultural Centre took on a cinematic quality, with passers-by like extras and your senses anticipating some untoward event." The West Australian
"stimulating" The West Australian
Public Space is an immersive interactive performance involving visual, sound, physical and textual moments that take the audience through the balmy early evening of the inner city urban hub, asking the audience to engage with their city in a new and unique way. Listen to the city so that we might tell you a story about the unexpected. A familiar car park seen in an unfamiliar way or whispers of sweet intimacies in a stairwell at dusk –you might want to watch out for clues along the path while questioning whether everyone in view might be a performer and the cityscape might be their stage.
Interaction is required and openness desired, so be prepared to become familiar with your Public Space.
Facilitated and directed by Renee Newman-Storen
