A Regular Little Houdini recounts the coming-of-age tale of a young dockworker’s son at the turn of the twentieth century,written by and starring Daniel Llewelyn-Williams.
The story of Jesus Christ and his final days is well-worn with countless adaptations and representations over thousands of years.
I recently interviewed Guy Masterson about his coming return to Adelaide to give performances of his acclaimed production of Animal Farm.
Masterson adds a a vast amount of brilliantly executed physical comedy to the already extremely side-achingly funny script.
David Calvitto and Beth Fitzgerald are a perfect pairing in this fast paced and witty piece. They do not waste a word of this rapid fire tongue twister of a script.
This is a most worthwhile endeavour and, if all goes well, marks the start of a project that will continue in future years.
Nathan does a sensational job of portraying all of the different characters. This is a remarkably fine piece of theatre from a local writer/performer.
The merit of this predictable play is in the acting. Guy Masterson and Joanne Hartstone give powerful performances as unlikeable university professor John and his irritating pupil Carol.
Both the text and Ross Gurney-Randall are magnificent, with Guy Masterson's tight direction creating a fast-paced, gripping drama on an almost bare stage
Guy Masterson reprised his celebrated comedy American Poodle for two shows only amongst the ten productions he has brought to the Fringe under the banner of the Centre for International Theatre.
This is a highly rewarding exposition of Shakespeare's famous character, told with great skill and plenty of good humour by a host of characters, each brought into sharp focus by Guy Masterson's amazingly versatile acting skills.
This is theatre at its best with a masterful piece of work from Pip Utton that you all must see.
This is a stunning production and a magnificently rich and complex performance that should be high on your list of shows to see this Fringe.
You will find this fine play a fascinating and rewarding experience thanks to Paul Slack's terrific performance. Don't miss it.
I have seen it several times before, but never tire of Masterson’s magnificent performance of one of the most poetic and evocative pieces of writing.
Richard Fry turns his poem into an astoundingly gripping performance that draws on his life story. This should be compulsory viewing for all teachers.
Do not be fooled: there is far more to this production that at first appears. This is yet another production that should be on your top ten list, along with the other seven brought here this year by Guy Masterson.
This is a multi-award winning production that goes beyond theatrical norms and gives the feeling of having dropped in on an old friend, so intensely honest, open and revealing are the highly personal memories that Lynn Manning shares.
Guy Masterson and Ronnie Toms appear in a witty and dark comedy, written by Tim Whitnall, in which Roy Tunt, an avid birdwatcher, is interrupted in his pursuit of that one elusive bird, Vanellus Gregarious, or the Sociable Plover, by the unexpected arrival in the hide of a stranger, Dave John.
It is rare to see something of this remarkably high standard and you owe it to yourself to indulge in an evening in the company of genius, while you can. This is a totally captivating performance, as a 100 year old clown hangs up his red nose and oversized shoes for the final time.
