SEA WALL is a provocative journey through the waves – of both ocean and grief. Set in Northern Ireland, the show follows Alex, a doting father, loving husband, loyal son and gentle soul through his musings on family, spirituality, art love and loss, between crashing waves of tragedy and hope. SEA WALL is a phenomenal, top-tier show. A thought-provoking production that examines the importance of grief and how sometimes you just fall off the sea wall.

Beenleigh Theatre’s production of Freaky Friday is playing at Crete Street Theatre. Presented with minimal set pieces, a projected backdrop, and a rotating centrepiece to signify changes between home and school, this piece relies heavily on the gumption and chutzpah of the cast.

Bravo!
