Review of The Little Death at Luna


The Little Death now showing at Luna Leederville and Luna SX in Freo is a cracker of a comedy about the sex lives of a cross section of Australian couples.

Laughter on the 23rd Floor by Black Swan State Theatre Company


Black Swan State Theatre Company brings to Perth audiences Laughter on the 23rd Floor.

The play is set in the writers room for the Max Prince Show, located on the 23rd floor of New York's Rockefeller Plaza, way back in 1953.

They say that great tragedy makes for great comedy, and nothing is a better example of this than Laughter on the 23rd Floor.
