Adelaide Fringe Festival Review: Matt Tarrant Honestly Dishonest – The Octagon, Gluttony (28.02.16)

Matt Tarrant is straight up with the crowd gathered in The Octagon tent on a warm Sunday evening; he’s loved magic ever since he was a kid wanting to be pulled up on stage by the first magician he’d ever seen perform. His Adelaide Fringe Festival show Honestly Dishonest is about perhaps giving that feeling to any kid in attendance tonight – they too could be magicians when they grew up. It’s also about him sharing with the audience some of his favourite tricks, injected with a solid amount of humour and delivery that strays from what you may expect from a show of this kind....

Adelaide Fringe Festival Review: Scotch & Soda – The Panama Club, Royal Croquet Club (20.02.16)

Scotch & Soda easily became one of my Adelaide Fringe highlights, a declaration I made within minutes of leaving The Panama Club and emerging out into the bright lights of this year’s Royal Croquet Club set up. A sold out show indicated that the Adelaide crowds were either returning to Scotch & Soda following a wildly successful season in 2015, or were coming to the show for the first time (as I was) with high expectations. Either way, all expectations were smashed.... Read More | Share it now!

Adelaide Fringe Festival Review: Sammy J & Randyland – Corona Theatre, Garden of Unearthly Delights (18.02.16)

Oh, Sammy J & Randy. For many Adelaide Fringe Festival goers, it just simply isn’t a year in the Garden of Unearthly Delights without these two bringing an hour or so of their absurdly wicked comedy through to one of the tents erected throughout Rymill Park. Their latest show, Sammy J & Randyland, sees the duo dealing with the pressures of their longtime partnership, the tensions of which are fuelled by the fact they’ve decided to embark on a new business venture – taking a ridiculous loan out and purchasing a theme park in order to fulfill one of Sammy’s lifelong dreams....

1927’s Paul Barritt on Golem and bringing the award-winning production to the Adelaide Festival of Arts!

Following on from the ideas projected through the 2015 production Nufonia Must Fall, 1927 returns to the Adelaide Festival of Arts this year with a continued exploration of the relationship between man and machine with Golem. Where Nufonia detailed a love story, Golem takes the audience into darker, nightmarish territory in highlighting the dangerous dependency humans share with the machine and technology’s arresting control on the modern world....

Adelaide Fringe Festival Review: The Last Time I Saw Richard – The Bakehouse Theatre (16.02.16)

The Last Time I Saw Richard sees two people navigate the complexities and ideas surrounding the idea of a ‘non-relationship’ in a series of hotel rooms over an extended period of time. Will this chemistry April and Richard share extend outside the confines of the temporary accommodation they keep finding themselves in? Are the insecurities and sarcastic walls both characters exhibit enough to keep them both enticed, or is this simply fated to be just sex? It’s this exploration of fidelity, the definitions of love and sex that Cat Commander weaves through a clever and well-presented script that is delivered evocatively by five.point.one....
