Matchstick

Everything has a catch and people aren’t always who they seem to be. Swept off her feet by a mysterious foreigner, a young woman leaves behind the world she grew up in to start again in a land of opportunity and freedom. Soon she finds herself trapped in a life she could never have predicted... a not-very-fairytale folk musical about the wife of a very notorious man.

The Highest Step in the World

We are pleased to offer this high flying show as part of our Deep End Season. On August 16, 1960, US Air Force Captain Joseph W. Kittinger stepped out of a balloon gondola at 102,800 feet above the Earth. For more than four and a half minutes, he plummeted towards the ground before finally opening his parachute at an altitude of 18,000 feet. No person had ever parachuted to Earth from space before.  Ghost River Theatre’s imaginative and beautiful one man show uses stunning multimedia and flying effects to tell the story of a boy that flew too close to the sun, an woman who survived falling out of the sky and a man who bravely leaped from the edge of space.

Mary’s Wedding

While seeking refuge from a sudden storm, Mary and Charlie find not just shelter, but each other, and a tentative love. On the night before Mary’s wedding, she dreams of Charlie, the trenches of the Great War, and of lightning strong enough to rend the world in two. August 2014 marked the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War 1. The “Great War” of 1914 - 1918, was a global struggle that touched everyone’s lives. Mary’s Wedding captures this time of courage and innocence with rare sensitivity and beauty.

Hedda Gabler

Victim, villainess, the original (and still unsurpassed) desperate housewife. Hedda is all of these and more. Bored in her marriage and a victim of her own strange and erratic behaviour... Hedda Gabler is a powerful story of deceit and desperation. Henrik Ibsen is one of the world's greatest dramatists and his play Hedda Gabler features one of the most extraordinary female characters ever written for the stage.  Set in the late 1800’s, when class differences and rigid standards for women existed in society, Hedda Gabler is trapped in a world that does not fit her. To survive, this “desperate housewife” sets in motion an array of destructive schemes.
