It is May 1940, where the war between Germany and its neighbours has intensified. Shockingly, the French army collapses, and Hitler seizes Paris. The government is in panic and considers accepting defeat, but recently promoted two-star General Charles de Gaulle (Lambert Wilson), wants to change the course of history…
His wife, Yvonne (Isabelle Carré), is his first support, but very quickly events spiral out of control and separate them – she and their children set out on the roads of exodus, as Charles travels to London to meet with Winston Churchill. He wants to make another voice heard: that of resistance.
Matching the impact and scale of recent war dramas ‘The Darkest Hour’ and ‘The King’s Choice’ as it depicts crucial incidents in gripping tick-tock fashion, Director Le Bomin expertly mixes the historic and the Romanesque, charting both a military debacle and the eventual revelation of a destiny.
DE GAULLE opens in cinemas on Thursday 6th May, 2021.
Sydney Arts Guide has three in season double passes to give away to DE GAULLE. Email email@example.com with DE GAULLE PROMOTION in the subject heading and your postal address in the body of your email. Winners will be advised by email.

Based on the 1990 cult-classic John Waters (Hairspray) film, written and directed by Waters, CRY BABY-THE MUSICAL will be presented in the Opera House’s Drama Theatre from 22 July – 15 August, 2021. Highly subversive and proudly irreverent, CRY-BABY The Musical, which won four 2018 Sydney Theatre Awards during its season at the Hayes Theatre Co, is a tongue-in-cheek homage to the teen rebel genre.
Joyous, sexy and heartbreaking, I WANT TO KNOW WHAT LOVE IS, is a dizzying ride through love’s collision course. Premiering in 2014, it captivated audiences around the country during two sell-out seasons in Brisbane, a Melbourne season at the 2017 Provocare Festival, and a national tour. Originally planned as part of last year’s program, Darlinghurst Theatre Company is thrilled to finally bring this spectacular tapestry of crowdsourced love stories to Sydney.
The show was devised by Queensland-based performance collective The Good Room. Their approach uses anonymous experiences of ordinary people to create extraordinary theatre works and I Want To Know What Love Is is no different. Members of the public were invited to anonymously submit their stories of love online. These ranged from confessions and quirky anecdotes to stories of heartbreak and first love. While most submissions were romantic, they also included warm stories of familial love. Continue reading I WANT TO KNOW WHAT LOVE IS : COMING TO THE DARLO→
