Keep those holiday vibes alive
4 Fabulous February Theatre Finds

January has come to an end and February brings work and school. Sometimes it feels like all the fun dies once the routine kicks back in. In a desperate search to keep the Summer fun feeling flowing, I have tracked down four great shows to see in February to keep those holiday vibes alive.

1 - 5 February at The Butterfly Club

The Rambling Feminist
The Rambling Feminist

A woman traverses the world with only a backpack, her anti-patriarchal sentiment, and her white privilege. As she journey's by train, plane, car, and bicycle she learns little and has no idea how to put what she does learn into practice. The Rambling Feminist sheds certainty, wandering with a bag full of books and a pocket full of dreams.


3 - 5 February at La Mama Courthouse

Sad Digger Mad Mary

Having gone AWOL, this digger is hiding away in his bush tent with his dog Bluey and a billy on the boil. Deep in his musings on a relationship which was more than just mateship he is confronted by a magical therapist helping him make the medicine go down. Sad Digger Mad Mary is an unorthodox story about a man confronting his desires and resisting assimilation.


6 - 18 February at The Owl and Cat Theatre


A group of teens go to the same high school but they come from very different backgrounds. Warning: Erasers contains violence, strong language, sexual assault and suicide.


From 22 February at The Comedy Theatre

The Play That Goes Wrong
The Play That Goes Wrong

The Play That Goes Wrong is an Olivier Award Winning comedy Masterpiece. The Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society try to put on a 1920's murder mystery but everything that could go wrong does go wrong. This is a highly physical piece of theatre with farce and slapstick delivered with precision timing.
