The Blue Room's latest show, Hold Your Breath (Count To Ten), is a play about a play about the way a man's mind is so often its own worst enemy. Daley's story is very informative in its telling, if slightly clinical, and provides the audience with a lot of food for thought
Cardboard Kingdom is the most heartfelt wakeup call imaginable. The passion on display in all facets of the play is the kind that made me fall in love with theatre in the first place.
This two-person play can only be described as an experience. What they brought was a boundary-pushing, uproariously funny night of dark slapstick comedy at its finest.
Once We Lived Here is a timeless tragicomedy that makes its audience alternate between laughing and crying, sometimes both at the same time. The cast delivered strong characters all round with an authenticity that is hard to find in such dramatised and musical theatre.
Hypatia uses the suffering of the past to elucidate the plights of the present. Perhaps what was most memorable about Liz Newell’s Hypatia was the constant feeling of heart-pounding anticipation.
At the hands of master craftsman and director Scott McArdle, a transformation occurs: the story of the Soviet space race goes from a strong script, eloquent and thought provoking but still a mere script, into the play embodied by five superb actors and a genius sound guy at the Blue Room Theatre this month. This feat is comparable to the launching of a man into space, just as worthy of applause but far more successful.
Of all the intriguing shows The Blue Room Theatre are putting on this year, Second Chance Theatre's Laika: A Staged Radio Play is certainly one of the most interesting. We were privileged enough to talk to the show's writer, director and lighting designer Scott McArdle to get a better grasp on this fascinating project.
Fugue’s Arteries By Ancestry isn’t so much a play you ‘understand’ but rather one you witness and feel. It’s a visceral, often confronting performance that demands your attention and makes the most of it.
The Blue Room Theatre's An Almost Perfect Thing is an almost perfect combination of plot driven mind folly and uncannily human characterisation. If you’re ready to teeter on the edge of your seat with the insatiable hunger of suspense, now is your time.
Tamagotchi Reset is kind of like this amalgam of a Bill Wurtz video, a lecture, an argument, and some very interesting (albeit obscure) historical storytelling. The writing shines in this piece, and the Blue Room, the sound, the lighting; these all help to make sure that what is said gets through to the audience.
Anxiety is a prickly, jarring thing, but Interrupting a Crisis tells its story in a smooth and elegant way.
We speak to Perth playwright and singer-songwriter Georgina Cramond (aka RIBS) about anxiety, music, and storytelling in the lead up to her upcoming play, "Interrupting A Crisis"
I had high expectations going into Toast, but nothing could have prepared me for the real thing.
Brand new at the Blue Room Theatre this month is a new Western Australian born and raised show: Toast. We got the chance to discuss this new show with director Emily McLean in the lead-up to its premiere.
Lucidity, and the phenomenon of lucid dreaming it explores, is such a fascinating concept. The human endeavour to control the conventionally uncontrollable is examined to a T through the topic, as well as grief, moving forward, responsibility and, ultimately, the essence of love.
