Sydney Theatre Company and Medina Apartment Hotels present

by Nina Raine

It’s Bella’s birthday. Next year she'll be thirty (God forbid). Her father’s dying in hospital. Her ex-boyfriend is a psychological bully. None of her closest friends really know each other, but she's decided to herd them all down to her local for a party. Things are going badly enough, until an old flame joins the fray...

Pulled from pillar to post by thoughts and memories of her dying father and the torture of her vacuous twenty-something life, Rabbit explores the emotional minefield of becoming an adult. Over the course of the alcohol-fuelled evening the characters are peeled back in a torrent of acid one-liners.

Rabbit, the ferociously funny first play by Nina Raine, was produced in London in 2007 to rave reviews and was awarded the Evening Standard Award for Best New Play and the London Critics’ Circle Award.

Z Zegna


Z is for Zegna
Z for Zeta (in Italian)
Z is for Z Zegna, the Ermenegildo Zegna contemporary & fashion signature
Z is for Z Zegna, the new, very masculine fragrance by Ermenegildo Zegna

An irreverent attitude, a sensual energy… the Z Zegna man values style, freedom, authenticity.
A modern man, he loves fashion, art, technology, the cities and their movement.
He has a passion for liberty, the open roads, motorbikes, speed and travels.
He is a free spirit. He draws his strength, authenticity and personality from his homeland: Italy, the Mediterranean.
He likes beautiful fabrics, true materials: the suppleness of leather, the softness of wool, the purity of metal, the sensation of their contact on his skin.
He is sporty, self confident, incredibly sensual.
For this irresistible charmer, Zegna has created Z Zegna.
A fragrance of style, sport and seduction.
A fragrance in his own image.

The Pig Iron People
By John Doyle

In the tradition of Patrick White's suburban satires, John Doyle, one of our great contemporary commentators, has written his first play.

Set on a quiet suburban street with not quite enough parking for the residents, The Pig Iron People examines two generations and the way the politics of their time (and the politics of their carparking) have shaped them.

Nick, a young man wanting to reinvent himself and find his voice as a writer, moves in to Liberal Street. It is 1996, the day of John Howard's first election victory. Looking for solitude, he ends up falling in love with April, a young actress, and striking up a bumpy but finally genuine relationship with his nosy, cantankerous old neighbours.

These are the Pig Iron People of the title, the generation who grew up under Menzies. Without realising it, he and April will be growing up under Honest John. Relaxed and comfortable? Great, but every day? All the time? And when you are not...?

Characterised by Doyle's tangential humour which brilliantly illuminates the hearts of his characters, The Pig Iron People is a timely satire infused with profound tolerance for the foibles of humanity.

Opera Australia and Commonwealth Bank present

My Fair Lady
Alan Jay Lerner & Frederick Lowe

For Henry Higgins, professor of linguistics and confirmed misogynist, transforming a streeturchin into a lady is a trivial task, done to honour a bet with his friend Colonel Pickering. Until, of course, he meets the proud little cockney, Eliza Doolittle, and finds that his raw material might not be so easy to mould. Lerner and Loewe’s exuberant adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion was always destined to be a smash hit.

The irascible Henry Higgins, the irresistible Eliza Doolittle, and the glorious succession of show-stopping numbers from ‘I Could Have Danced All Night ’ to ‘Get Me to the Church On Time’ propelled this classic story into Broadway history.

Now My Fair Lady comes to Australia in a new production from the team that created The Pirates of Penzance.

Expect extravagant sets, outstanding performances, a virtuosic chorus and a veritable fashion parade of costumes.

In his musical theatre debut, acclaimed British film actor Richard E. Grant stars as Henry Higgins with one of Opera Australia’s brightest young talents, Taryn Fiebig, as Eliza. Nancye Hayes, who danced in the original Australian production at the start of her illustrious music theatre career, now joins the cast as the acerbic Mrs Higgins. This has all the ingredients for a ‘luvverly’ night in the theatre!
