GLORIOUS!

Artwork of soprano onstage singing with wings and cherubs

By Peter Quilter
Directed by Joy Sweeney
By Special Arrangement with Origin Theatrical

Based upon a true story, this comedy is set in 1940’s New York, about the worst singer in the world Florence Foster Jenkins known as ‘the first lady of the sliding scale’. Florence, an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect, warbled and screeched her way through the evening to an audience who mostly fell about with laughter. But this delusional and joyously happy woman followed her dreams and paid little attention to her critics, instead she was surrounded by a circle of devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was. “Glorious!” premiered in London’s West End in November 2005, receiving a Laurence Olivier Award nomination as Best New Comedy.

Things I Know to be True

By Andrew Bovell
Directed by Carla Moore
Exclusively licensed by HLA Management Pty Ltd

One year in the life of an Australian family as they discover the sweet pain of finding out the truth about each other and themselves. Bob and Fran Price have been married for 30 years, brought up four children and kept their sense of humour. Their eldest is married with children of her own, the boys are successfully pursuing careers and their youngest has just left home to backpack around Europe for a year. It should be time to stop and smell Bob’s precious roses. But just when things should be slowing down, it becomes clear that a parent’s work is never really complete. Funny and poignant, Things I Know to be True is a beautifully crafted play from award winning Australian playwright Andrew Bovell.
