From the multi award-winning writer of Cloudstreet comes an otherworldly theatrical event that shines a light on the tangled bonds of one Australian family. Following the resounding success of Glimpse and The Leenane Trilogy, The KIN Collective joins forces with fortyfivedownstairs and director Marcel Dorney to present the Melbourne premiere of Tim Winton’s searing drama, Shrine. The deeply personal connection readers have with Australia’s sharpest storyteller is brought to life by a stellar cast that includes Ally Fowler (Wentworth, Neighbours) and Christopher Bunworth (Boy Out of the Country).

Shrine played at fortyfivedownstairs May 24 - June 18, 2017.

Title and Deed, by Will Eno

“...a haunting and often fiercely funny meditation on life as a state of permanent exile."- The New York Times

Presented as part of Melbourne Fringe 2017, award-winning Broadway playwright Will Eno's Title and Deed (A Monologue for a Slightly Foreign Man) is brought to life by KIN's uber-talented Keith Brockett. This one man show is one of the most uniquely funny, relevant and thought-provoking pieces of theatre we've come across in recent years, and we're thrilled to be performing the Melbourne Premiere. Don't miss it: front and centre in the Fringe Hub: Studio 2, September 23 - 30.

"Daring, spectacular and hilarious! Stage poetry of a high order! - The New Yorker

"Pensive, lyrical, deeply funny and profoundly sad."- Variety

lottie in the late afternoon, by amelia roper

Lottie is trying to be a good person. Lottie is trying to be a good friend. She’s cooking good food, buying nice gifts, saying all the right things and reading all the important books. Because it's a vacation! And everyone loves vacations! And everyone loves Lottie! She's so fun! All the time! Well, she can be! If she tries! Surely! Amelia Roper's hilarious play Lottie in the Late Afternoon is about being broke, sad, hurting, lonely and accidentally choosing a vacation house on the edge of a terrifying cliff.

Stay tuned for our big announcement about Lottie in the Late Afternoon
