Bear & Co. Presents MACBETH
by BWW News Desk - Sep 24, 2016

Three witches lure Macbeth to a clandestine crown. Shakespeare's tale of Scottish savageries from 400 years earlier blends life at the knife edge with surprising tenderness. Twelfth-Century Scotland is the world of Outlander, where decisions reek more of Game of Thrones than of the court of St. James.  Adapted from Bear & Co.'s July 2016 outdoor touring production, here is a love story with appalling consequences, presented in a fast paced re-telling. This is theatre magic. Let it come down. (more...)

BWW Review: BLACKBIRD is Dark, Deep and Compelling at Off Broadway, Sydney Fringe
by Brodie Paparella - Sep 16, 2016

The beauty of Fringe festival is an opportunity for emerging talent to be revealed amidst an energy of mystery and excitement about which fresh face might be a rising star in the diverse and strong community of local artists. Blackbird definitely fit the bill for such discovery, featuring at the tucked-away Off Broaday venue in Annandale. There in amongst the contemporary pop art outside, and the trashy cafeteria set inside, was woven a dark and devious tale of a reunion between a man seeking a new future, and the young woman who holds all the keys to redemption of them both. Fifteen years prior to her showing up at his workplace, Una was Ray's pre-teen lover whom he abandoned during a romantic getaway. For him, a swift prison stint followed by a new life and lifetime of secrecy, but for her, the scorn and scandal in her hometown that appears to have left her in bitter ruin. Together they will unravel their relationship and leave audiences next to breathless. (more...)

A man named Gabriel prepares to meet his adult son after being estranged for twenty years. He wonders why his son is coming and what he wants: to know who he is? Where he comes from? Where he belongs? Gabriel knows nothing; his own past escapes him. As the story of Gabriel's family unfolds onstage, his ancestors come alive around him to fill in the gaps. With its web of intricately overlapping connections, When the Rain Stops Falling follows four generations of a family from 1959 to 2039, and from London to Australia.
