What's On

Coming Up...

Gloria is a play about grace, grandchildren and memory. A play where music takes centre stage, weaving together Gloria’s rapidly fraying memories.

Gloria Clare has led an extraordinary life. With a searing intellect and boundless talent, she ran from small-town Australia to Europe in her reckless youth, became a diva and found love.

She’s been a chanteuse and composer, a rebel and a romantic. But these things are dim and distant for her.

Now in her fifties, and having recently suffered a stroke, Gloria’s memories are slipping away. 

Gloria is a new Australian work, commissioned by Queensland Theatre Company, and written by Brisbane playwright Elaine Acworth. It was also shortlisted for the Rodney Seaborn Playwriting Award (2012). Book your tickets early so you don’t miss out on this beautiful Australian piece.

A theatrical experience that will resonate with anyone who’s ever stumbled over putting a face to a name, or called an object a ‘thingamy’.
