The Last Tuesday Society presents Pimp My Play as part of the 2015 NEON season at The Melbourne Theatre Company
Richard Higgins and I are very pleased to announce that The Last Tuesday Society will be ‘pimping a play’ from the canon as the special closing event of the 2015 NEON season of independent theatre at The Melbourne Theatre Company.
We’ll have more news on what that play might be and the collaborating artists soon, but in the meantime here’s a link to an article about the season in The Sydney Morning Herald.
We’ve also started to sell tickets! The show is for one night only on the 25th of July, so to make sure you don’t miss out, buy your tickets HERE
I am currently lucky enough to be in Paris, at the Cite Internationale des Arts undertaking a three month residency funded by the Australia Council for the Arts.
I’m here researching a new theatre work, attending the Nice Carnival and interning with some local arts companies. I’m also trying to resist the baked goods!
There will be more exciting developments for the year to announce soon, but in the meantime you can visit the Cite’s website here
I’m thrilled to announce that The Dad Show is happening next week on the seventh and eighth of November!
The Dad Show is a new performance project in which contemporary artists create and perform new short works with their own fathers and has been developed through Punctum Inc’s Seedpod Amplified extended residency program.
The Dad Show and engages artists and fathers who are based in the Kyneton area or northwest region of Victoria and these artists include:
Christian Bagin (The Rapture)
Michael and Hal Langley
Sarah Lockwood (Drop Bear Theatre)
Hannah Monagle (Pipe Up Poetry Slam)
Wes Snelling (Tina Del Twist)
Encompassing music, theatre, live art and digital projection The Dad Show celebrates legacy, fathers and father figures in their many forms.
WHEN: 7th and 8th of November at 7pm (90 mins)
WHERE: St Mary’s Hall, Kyneton (Corner of Ebden and Hutton Streets)
Though we’ve barely recovered from our Malthouse season The Last Tuesday is happening again in October with Alternate Endings!
In a performance outing with a distinctly literary flavour, The Last Tuesday is teaming with the Wheeler Centre to imagine ‘what if?’ in endings both factual and fictional.
And it’s FREE! Now that’s a happy ending.
Our artists will take liberties with the facts as they finish things good and proper. For example:
What if Julia Gillard was still our prime minister?
Or Romeo and Juliet had decided that they were just being a bit silly and over-dramatic?
And what if he didn’t drive the chevy to the levy and instead the music had survived?
Laura Jean McKay
Dr Professor Neal Portenza
And Miss Tina Del Twist
Hosted by Richard ‘once and for all’ Higgins
WHERE: The Wheeler Centre, State Library Melbourne
WHEN: Tuesday the 21st of October at 7.15pm
HOW MUCH: FREE I told you already! And there’s a bar!
You can book your (free) tickets at The Wheeler Centre website
ONLY FOUR MORE CHANCES!

The Last Tuesday Society is thrilled to present our new work The YouTube Comment Orchestra in September 2014!
Presented as part of The Malthouse Theatre’s 2014 Helium season in collaboration with Melbourne Fringe, The YouTube Comment Orchestra is a collection of new performance works made from and inspired by YouTube comments.
Hosted and produced by Richard Higgins and myself, The YouTube Comment Orchestra features performances by Mish Grigor (post), Grit Theatre, The List Operators, I’m Trying to Kiss You, Poet Laureate Telia Nevile, Vachel Spirason, Lara Thoms and Madeleine Tucker.
My new performance work Use Your Illusion debuts on the 21st of August at The Collingwood Masonic Lodge!
Here is some info:
Use Your Illusion is a collaboration between Bron and a qualified hypnotist who will place her and several audience participants under hypnosis live onstage, blurring the lines between ‘truth’, ‘acting’, ‘performance’ and straight out ‘lying’. Set in the depths of the Collingwood Masonic Lodge the work draws on the mysterious atmosphere of this exclusive environment. Use Your Illusion pushes the boundaries of inhibition, exploits the power of suggestion and poses the question, what won’t Bron do for our entertainment?
You can buy tickets and learn more about the show at the Field Theory website here
The Psychic Hairdressers (also known as Beth Sometimes and myself) will be plying our cosmic wares in Hobart this weekend at Dark MOFO. Come find us at The Winter Feast or in the Faux Mo Club on saturday night. More details here
I will be performing at Justin Heazlewood’s book launch on Sunday the first of June at Howler in Brunswick. I am interviewed in the book on what it is like to be a practising artist in Australia.
Dad and I will be doing a spot from Sweet Child of Mine at about 4.15pm. The event is free- that’s right, FREE! And you can find all the details here
