Absolutely is the laugh out loud and touching tale of how a six foot nine introvert accidently discovers his joy of acting in a small wheatbelt town, and goes on to perform for Cirque du Soleil.

The One Day of the Year

One-Day-of-the-Year-HERO-HITWhat is the meaning of Anzac Day?

For war veterans like Alf Cook and his friend Wacka Dawson, it’s the chance to commemorate history,¬†celebrate heroism and conjure national pride. For Alf’s son Hughie, Anzac Day flies the flag for a very different reality, one that brings the dignity of our Diggers to its knees and into the gutter – via one too many down the pub. On the 100 year anniversary of the Gallipoli landing, The One Day of the Year looks at our national legend through the eyes of generation, class and character.

In Coppola’s infamous 1972 film, The Godfather, the head from a prize horse is cut off and placed in the bed of a Hollywood producer.

HorseHead is about the two men charged with this gruesome task…

These men are gangsters on the rise, so when this extreme job gets rung through they know they have to step up and deliver.
