Fantastically performed, a pure joy to watch

Disaster strikes for a bride-to-be when her ex-boyfriend shows up on her wedding day in this funny comedy at the Galleon Theatre Group.
Presented by Galleon Theatre Group Reviewed 22 May 2014 This reviewer is in LOVE! – with Galleon Theatre Group’s latest show, the Australian premiere of Loves and Hours. Stephen Metcalfe’s hilarious, yet poignant, modern script and this entire production of it are picture perfect. With no less than forty scenes covering such things as […]
The Club is an iconic Australian play by Australia’s most produced playwright, and as such is often treated with undue reverence. Galleon’s production is a down to earth rendition of this well-written comedy.
The play may not be comfortable viewing for anyone touched by addiction but Simon has a gift for finding laughs in the darkness and sympathy in the unsympathetic.
A sweet story of love and loss, told with Neil Simon's usual flair for comedy.
