NECROPHILIA by Lincoln Vickery @ LIMELIGHT ROOM, Limelight on Oxford, 231 Oxford Street

NECROPHILIA is a very dark multiple-fetish comedy set in a funeral parlour. Complete with freshly dead corpses on the table, and each new body eagerly awaiting their formaldehyde bath. With just so many taboos and fetishes to explore, there are humourous cringeworthy one-liners galore. The cast of four, all brought depth to their roles. Especially impressed by the stillness of the actor playing each of the different Dead Bodies.

Of course a very fast paced comedy/drama about the paraphilia called Necrophilia, means the audience should expect there will be one or more Necrophiliacs. Also perhaps some Thanatophilia, Necrophilism, Necrolagnia, Necrocoitus, Necrochlesis. We discover an unexpected fetish in the first ten minutes. The events unfold, including a morality tale about a blackmailing videographer, and the extremely distasteful blackmail victim. Two employees have fetishes, that make them quite unable to find a way to date each other. An eventful evening of interesting live theatre.

STARRING – Jack Scott, Ariadne Sgouros, Adam Sollis and Emma O’Sullivan

JOSEPH K @ LIMELIGHT ROOM, Limelight on Oxford, 231 Oxford Street Darlinghurst

JOSEPH K is arrested on his thirtieth birthday, and ending on his 31st birthday, we experience the mediocrity of a dystopian government bureaucracy gone quite mad.

This JOSEPH K is a truely brilliant production with a perfect ensemble cast of ten actors, with many in unique multiple roles. Expertly directed by Sean O’Riordon, who is an actor’s director who understands all the nuances of performance. The well-chosen background music soundtrack, adds an extra level of depth to the JOSEPH K  theatre experience.          Continue reading JOSEPH K @ LIMELIGHT ROOM, Limelight on Oxford, 231 Oxford Street Darlinghurst

HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD AND MAKE BANK DOING IT at LIMELIGHT ROOM, Limelight on Oxford

Bold and innovative theatre, brand new Australian play, meeting the denizens of Sydney suburbia set in a shopping centre. Interesting charity fundraising message drama, about the different methodology between Volunteers and Non-Volunteers (un)successfully collecting donations for charities, and their questionable motives with rejection avoidance their only concern, whilst being constantly economical with the truth. You are made to wonder what kind of multi-national corporate black hole is being used to make disappear every year, all of the combined millions of dollars of charity donations.                 Continue reading HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD AND MAKE BANK DOING IT at LIMELIGHT ROOM, Limelight on Oxford

DITCH BY BETH STEEL @ LIMELIGHT ON OXFORD

DITCH is Beth Steel’s brutal dystopian thought-provoking debut play from 2010, and now receives a splendid Australian Premiere at the boutique performance venue, Limelight on Oxford. Man-made climate apocalypse, gloom and doom as most of the United Kingdom is now underwater, together with the sheer stupidity of an impending global nuclear annihilation.

This play is a stark and lucid reminder of the possibilities, caused by any of the world’s governments failing to prevent global warming. Bleak unpleasant future, London is long gone, and Manchester’s draconian government remains strong, and Manchester Security Services are constantly sending their able-bodied men to die in Venezuela.                      Continue reading DITCH BY BETH STEEL @ LIMELIGHT ON OXFORD

THE REALISTIC JONESES @ LIMELIGHT ROOM @ Limelight on Oxford, 231 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst

 

Sydney premiere. Starting at night on Jennifer and Bob Jones’s front porch, in a small mountain town, they meet and greet their brand new neighbours Pony and John Jones, who are now renting the house next door. Will Emo has carefully crafted a unique slow-burning and quite wistful play about two unrelated married couples absurdly both named Jones, who are getting to know each other, via highly eccentric and memorable Q and A.

Marriages under substantial stress, due to the constantly erratic but eclectic behaviour of both husbands. Praiseworthy direction by Julie Baz, and she has chosen an impeccable ensemble cast at the height of their craft, with each actor delivering earnest character-driven performances.

The two husbands, Bob Jones (Jeff Houston) and John Jones (David Jeffrey) are both dying, however they are keeping the exact same secret, that will be fully revealed in the Second Act. Discomfort easily generating laughter, their ever evolving back story, grows exponentially as multiple truths revealed.

John Jones displays assertive behaviour whilst delivering comedy immortal one-liners, with effective wordplay that sends the story forward in the most interesting and very entertaining ways, intentionally limiting and setting and respecting relationship boundaries.                               Continue reading THE REALISTIC JONESES @ LIMELIGHT ROOM @ Limelight on Oxford, 231 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst

37 WAYS TO SAY I’M GAY – LIMELIGHT ROOM @ Limelight on Oxford, 231 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst

Superb night of heart-warming entertainment, drama interspersed with perceptive comedy. Real change begins with full acceptance rather than choosing compromise, and these 37 “coming out” stories reflect the world finally changing for the better.

Twelve actors delivering 94 characters within 29 very short plays, 37 Ways to Say “I’m Gay”, fast paced and very easily extending the continuing storyline, plus beautifully crafted with a number of clever episodic story arcs, and returning to each dramatic story arc, at just the correct moment.
