2014 TURNSTILE AWARDS

14 09 2014

The 2014 Turnstile Awards for “excellence in theatre in Perth acknowledging outstanding locally produced (or co-produced) stage shows” were announced recently and I am proud to announce that out of nine winners, I was involved in three winning productions! Two of which were Weeping Spoon shows!

Thanks to everyone else involved in my show Trampoline, my Australian/Canadian co-production Vicious Circles and also to Greg Fleet, Tegan Mulvany and team for This Is Not A Love Song.

I am super chuffed, these are three shows I am extremely proud of and it’s always nice to have that work recognized.





THE END IS NIGH

14 03 2014

VICIOUS received a High Commendation at the Weekly Adelaide Fringe awards for Best Theatre, which was pretty awesome.

We also got another mention in The Sunday Mail’s Fringe round up The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

“The Good this year involved some great and challenging theatre that really raised the bar for people who like more than just comedy out of the Fringe.Leading the way was Weeping Spoon’s take on lies and fall of the Sex Pistols called Vicious Circles at the Wine Underground. It was in-your-face, confronting, brilliant drama that took you back to a  time when Anarchy ruled the UK.” -Matt Byrne, The Sunday Mail

ONLY ONE NIGHT left to catch the show! TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE!
