Griff Rhys Jones is bringing his Where Was I? show to Australia!

Griff will deliver an evening of laughter from forty years of travelling - through family, manhood and the world itself. He has been down rivers and up mountains – literally into Africa, out of India and across oceans in Three Men and A Boat, Mountains, Rivers and other adventures.   //   But he has also crossed the arid wastes of the BBC. He's navigated being sixty. He's explored the jungles of indignity. He's turned downhill without a map in to a career. And along ...

Dunham, a Guinness World Record ...

Jasper Jones Theatre Review

Set in the dying days of 1965, the play pulls no punches is showing how difficult it was growing up in a small town where racial intolerance was the tone of the day and the grind of daily boredom was never far away. Into this environment Charlie, a boy who dreams large comes face to face with many of life’s ugly truths while he acts as the show’s narrator. The play is presented in a brisk fashion, with the clever use of a revolving stage and having the actors play multiple roles to ...

The play also gives key scenes more than one point of view, often times replaying a scenario with dramatically different outcomes. This gives the audience the ability to ...
