REVIEW: Design For Living | Playhouse, Brisbane

Alison CotesOct 31, 2013

Wesley Enoch's Design For Living strips Noel Coward's sexual politics fable of its morality play in favour of over-the-top farce. And buries much of the wit at the same time.

REVIEW: Singled Out | Seymour Centre, Sydney

Lloyd Bradford SykeOct 25, 2013

Regina BotrosOct 17, 2013
