La Boite Season 2022
La Boite Theatre offers audiences glimpses into worlds of love, power, politics and hope in its daring and compelling 2022 Season.
Seven Methods Of Killing Kylie Jenner is a political and provocative two-woman play written by Jasmine Lee-Jones and co-directed by Zindzi Okenyo and Shari Sebbens.
Enraged by Kylie Jenner’s claim to be the youngest self-made billionaire, Cleo vents her frustration via Twitter, spiralling into death threats against Jenner as her URL beef brings up IRL tensions with her best friend Kara.
Produced by Darlinghurst Theatre Company and Green Door Theatre Company, Seven Methods of Killing Kylie Jenner is a deep-dive into the murky waters of colourism and the commodification of black women.
The Last Five Years directed by Darren Yap, was developed though the newly-established La Boite Artist Company.
Written by Jason Robert Brown, The Last Five Years is an emotionally powerful and intimate musical about a couple in their 20’s who fall in and out of love over the course of five years.
The show’s unconventional structure makes it a compelling and voyeuristic experience for audiences.
An Ideal Husband is award-winning playwright Lewis Treston’s adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s effervescent society drama about insider trading, political corruption, hypocrisy, blackmail and hot gossip, combining Wilde’s unmistakable style with a heavy dose of ‘90s nostalgia.
Set in Australia’s cold-blooded political heartland of Canberra in 1996, this hilarious queer adaption of Wilde’s classic comedy asks why Australian politics constantly fails to keep up with the people it’s supposed to represent.
Season 2022 closes with Tiddas, a co-production with QPAC and Brisbane Festival - an adaptation of Anita Heiss’ award-winning novel of the same name and directed by Nadine McDonald-Dowd.
The show introduces Brisbane audiences to the inimitable Izzy, Veronica, Xanthe, Nadine and Ellen – five best friends who meet once a month to discuss books, life, love and the jagged bits in-between.
"This new First Nations work has been in development for nearly three years, " McDonald Dowd said. "Tiddas puts the lives of five very real, very relatable women on-stage in a dynamic adaptation of acclaimed writer Anita Heiss’ incredible novel."
