Jack is smart, funny and is being bullied. What starts as an off-the-cuff joke during a handball competition, soon turns into a set of circumstances whereby Jack is no longer safe in the playground. But with the use of self expression through photography, Jack begins to make sense of his world; of his relationships with others, and most importantly, with himself. Based on the book by Susanne Gervay, adapted by Eva Di Cesare, Tim McGarry and Sandra Eldridge. Perfect for 8-14 year olds.

 All My love

Tickets: $25-$41
Bookings: 5232 2077

Their lives could have been written so differently: the story of Henry Lawson and Mary Gilmore’s lost and forbidden love. Still revered across Australia, Henry Lawson is one of the nation’s favourite writers and poets. His contemporary, Mary Gilmore, was a literary icon and radical socialist. These heroes of literature had enormous influence over each other….and they were secretly betrothed.
At the end of the 19th century, Mary Gilmore was introduced to the young Henry Lawson. As their friendship developed, Mary found herself caught in the midst of an intense relationship between Henry and his formidable mother, the suffragette Louise Lawson. Henry and Mary’s love affair was thwarted by a devastating deception.
