My best mate and I went see this new realisation of the 60s classic. And what a fun time it was! I've long been a fan of Shaun Micallef, and he didn't disappoint. Frances Greenslade was equally as fine, and the entire ensemble really brought...More

We were attracted by the combo of Micallef and Greenslade from their other comedic offerings. The show was good but there were only some parts that really sparkled. For instance the first half of the second act where Micallef's physical slapstick was just superb. When...More

Latest masterpiece by Joanna Murray Smith. Captivating dialogue and superb acting. Set was well designed and lighting added to the effect. Good use of background music to help build suspense. Thoroughly enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Having read the book I was looking forward to seeing the play and wasn't disappointed. A great cast and the staging, which I was wondering how they would do, was fantastic. A thoroughly enjoyable play and highly recommend it even if you haven't read the...More

Blindly booked for Miss Julia not knowing anything about MTC or the play and wasn't disappointed. Theatre is a great layout, very accessible with good facilities. Show was wonderfully produced and staged.
