A Life in the Theatre

Fortitude Valley

Ad Astra’s first show of the season, A Life in the Theatre by David Mamet, is certain to be a knockout when it takes to the stage from March 2-25, 2023. 

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Glengarry Glen Ross, A Life in the Theatre is a hilarious and heart-warming tale of two actors exploring the meaning of life.
