Four new shows are coming to the Blue Room Theater starting next month
The third schedule for the 2021 Blue Room Theater season has just dropped. Hosted by a panel of independent artists, the four shows range from remixed Shakespeare to revolutions at a suburban party. We think you will definitely find something that you like.
Starting August 24, experience Unbound, a haunting collision of classic text and dynamic contemporary shapes that is sure to challenge everything you think you know about the Bard.
Then, the limits of acceptable consumption will be pushed back in My Shout. A nuanced look at Australian drinking culture told from the comfort of the pub, served with a dose of reality of anxiety and hangover.
Towards the end of September comes Watch and Act, a black comedy about climate change that has been described as an audition tape at Nigelle Lawsonemergency contact in the event of a climate crisis.
And in October, Love Letters to the Revolution invites you to a house party where small uprisings and realizations explode with hope and frustration.
Both quirky and comfortable, the Blue Room Bar has been recently renovated and is absolutely worth a visit before or after the show. A more flexible liquor license also means the bar is open to everyone: you don’t need a ticket to a show to come and enjoy the space.
There has never been a better time to enjoy this local gem of a theater and experience the vibrant Perth independent theater scene.
All tickets are $ 20 to $ 30 incl. Booking fee. Learn more and buy on blueroom.org.au or call (08) 9227 7005.
