Ali McGregor’s Decadence | Above The Arts | 22 Feb, 1+15 Mar (pictured)
We’ve been fans of Ali McGregor for what seems like aeons, yet it can’t possibly be, because look how young she is…? Anyway, you shouldn’t miss your chance to spend time with this international cabaret star (their words, but of course it’s true) as she presents this celebration of ten years (since leaving Opera Australia for La Clique, first performed in 2015, iirc) of genre-defying mash-ups: “AC / DC, Radiohead and Salt ‘n Pepa like you’ve never heard them before”. See this page here for information and to book.

Foul Pages | The Hope Theatre | 20 Feb-17 Mar
“It’s 1603, the plague is ravaging London, scattering the court to the rural countryside of Wiltshire and disrupting the coronation celebrations of King James I. While actors rehearse, despite backstage squabbles and sexual politics, Shakespeare and the Countess of Pembroke struggle with the rewrites of ‘As You Like it’ which must appeal to the new king’s merciful nature and seduce him into releasing the condemned Sir Walter Raleigh.” This comical farce promises scandalous secrets, backstage betrayals and lusty liaisons, so I’m in. Head this way for details.

Rejoicing At Her Wondrous Vulva the Young Woman Applauded Herself | Ovalhouse | 21-23 Feb
If you’ve been carefully following our instructions of late, then you’ll probably remember seeking out and viewing Bella Heesom’s ‘My World Has Exploded A Little Bit’, when it was on at Ovalhouse in May following a successful run up at the 2016 edfringe. Our reviewer loved it, in fact, calling it “funny, energetic, profound and heartbreaking all at once”. Anyway, that’s just your proof of Heesom’s talent. This is a very different show, described as a “celebratory exploration of female sexuality”, and I think it will be brilliant. Click here for more.
