    Adapted from Andy Griffiths’ and Terry Denton’s phenomenally successful Treehouse book series, Richard Tulloch’s play — The 13-Storey Treehouse — is action-packed, full of laughs…with a see-through swimming pool, a tank full of man-eating sharks and a lemonade fountain!

    Imagine living in a 13-storey treehouse that includes a secret underground laboratory, self-making beds, a vegetable vaporiser and a marshmallow machine that shoots marshmallows into your mouth? Well Andy and Terry are lucky enough to live in one, where they have a series of completely mad adventures.

    And today Andy and Terry manage to get their dates all mixed up. They thought that they were going to rehearse their new play, The 13-Storey Treehouse, except they forgot to write it! And to make matters worse, they need to find flying cats, a mermaid, a sea monster, an invasion of monkeys, and a giant gorilla!

    Despite not having any of these things, they do have a box of costumes and props, some pretty awesome technology and friends to help out!

    In a suburban pub bistro on a Friday night three office workers – Dympie, Paula and Monika – are desperately seeking a good night out. At an adjoining table are Gordon, recently abandoned by his wife, and Stephen, looking for something more than the usual one night stand. As the night proceeds, inhibitions and social restraint disappear, exposing the foibles, pain and humour of the characters' inner lives.

    An acutely observed but tender-hearted account of relationships and behaviour.

    Stephen and Judy live on opposite sides of the world. Their lifestyles and outlooks could not be further apart. But they are brother and sister and when they are reunited at the bedside of their dying mother, family memories painfully and mercilessly return. David Williamson has created a family scenario that is frighteningly recognisable. At times hilarious, at times tortuous, this is a frank, critical look at Australian suburban life from the 1960s to the 1990s (2 acts, 3 men, 6 women).

    Of the Four Amigos who won a rowing bronze at the Mexico Olympics, three are still alive: Jim, an investment banker who thinks an AC after his name might legitimise a life of squalid dealing; Dick, a heart surgeon, who can, if he chooses, put in a good word with the Honours Committee; and Stephen, the least successful, grieving the death of his son. They and their wives come together for a two-week holiday in paradise. Sure, there's a bit of bad blood between them and a few old scores to settle, but when it all comes down to it, mates are mates, right?

    Lally Katz is on a journey. She’s left Australia behind and she’s in the country of her childhood, trying to find a way back to when things were innocent. Her relationships are chaotic, her professional life is a shambles and contemporary America seems riddled with charlatans and shysters. But along the way moments of wisdom bubble up, as if from some lost ancient city beneath the waves off Florida… Five women play the myriad characters of Lally’s life: ageing Jewish grandparents in Miami, wizened taxi drivers, cynical prophets, unhappy pharmacists, clowns, hip-hop artistes, narcissists, angels, animals – and, of course, Lally herself.

    Atlantis is about Lally, travelling into a mess of love and America, refusing to accept the world is doomed. The whirligig of this latter-day Don Quixote is bursting with playfulness, with imagination. Atlantis seems to be saying imagination is what will save us all and make this bleak world beautiful.

    A group of more or less ordinary Sydneysiders go about their lives: Anna makes toast, Henry dresses for work, Milla catches the train to school, Moses deals drugs. But hovering above this unholy parade of life is the sobering fact that Milla will die before her 15th birthday. "Babyteeth" looks at the humdrum world around us and sees something radically alive. Dogs, Paganini, figs, an eight-year-old Vietnamese violin prodigy, morphine, clear skies and a Latvian immigrant are amongst the magnificent conflagration of ingredients which make up this wonderful, funny play, written specially for Belvoir.

    (2 acts, 3 male, 3 female & 1 child).

    Jake Newhouse is a pickup artist who sells seduction techniques to the lovelorn men of the internet. Ish Madigan is a feminist academic whose life’s been destroyed by male internet trolls.

    They are natural enemies...until Jake grows desperate for a favour. He’s developed a crush on a Danish librarian who’s immune to his games, and offers Ish a cool $50 000 to teach him her ways of feminist-friendly persuasion. She may be broke, but can she do it? Will he stand it? And has anyone thought to consult the librarian?!

    Van Badham throws a bomb at the rom-com in a badly-behaved comedy of sex, love, modern manners and ancient vanities. Banging Denmark is breathless, relentless and a laugh-out-loud battle of the sexless.
