He Died with a Felafel in His Hand at The Flying Scotsman

Catch the hugely popular 1990s cult novel He Died with a Felafel in His Hand on stage this month at The Flying Scotsman's Velvet Lounge in Mount Lawley.

It's a must see cult classic that explores the madness of sharing house with the good, the bad and the ugly.
Written by John Birmingham and adapted by Simon Bedak, Steve Le  Marquand and Michael Neaylon, Groovy Boots Theatre is bringing it to life and taking the show back to its pub origins at The Flying Scotsman.

Described as one of the funniest Australian novels ever written with sales of more than 300,000 copies and counting, He Died with a  Felafel in His Hand also has the record of the longest-running stage play in Australian history.

He Died with a Felafel in His Hand is showing at The Flying Scotsman till 29 June.



Day One, A Hotel, Evening by Black Swan State Theatre Company

Joanna Murray-Smith is quoted in the program for Day One, A Hotel, Evening as wanting this play to be "a fast-paced near-farce about love, sex, competition, long-distance marriage, money and friendship".  And boy does she deliver on the pacing - when you are trying to pack all that into a mere 90 minutes, it's no wonder that you have to keep things moving. Black Swan State Theatre Company's production of Day One fairly zips along, with no intermission and barely a breather between scenes, with actors often making their exit past the players of the next scene.

Day One is a breezy look at the middle class - their jobs, relationships, passions, desires and jealousies - where the audience gets to watch a game of What If? played out in front of our eyes.

Day One, A Hotel, Evening by Black Swan State Theatre Company is showing till 30 June.




Hillarys Boat Harbour and Sorrento Board Walk - Eat, Drink and Be Merry with Sweeping Views of the Marina

Hillarys Boat Harbour, a popular marina and attraction located 23 kilometres north of Perth, where both locals and visitors hang out.

Hillarys is great for shopping, dining, keeping the kids entertained at the playground or beach, or just catching a sea breeze at the marina.

Many of the cafes and restaurants such as Zing Cafe and The Breakwater Tavern have sweeping views of the marina, and make a great place to just chill out and relax with family and friends.


Stay tuned to Perth Walkabout to explore our beautiful city of Perth.
