Goodbye Vaudeville Charlie Mudd 
Set in Edwardian Melbourne, this play is an evocation of a forgotten past—a play about pain and cruel desire; about the need for laughter, the palaces we build for it, and its human cost.

  • ‘… a deeply accomplished work: darkly beautiful theatre that resonates in the intimate chambers of the mind.’  The Australian

Return to Earth 
Edges on the whimsical but is ultimately lyrical and profound. It is a poignant play that tenderly captures the moment, often littered with casualties, when a young person moves from transparency to opacity, from childhood to adulthood—a period of intense loss and confusion.

  • ‘The parallel universe of Lally Katz’s imagination is an estranging, breathlessly anxious, uneasily hilarious place.’ The Australian
