Our Father Who Art (Nearly) In Heaven Sydney fringe festival at the Seymour Centre You can grab your tickets here A combination of farce and the whodunnit genres is not normally my favourite cup of theatre tea, yet I confess, after seeing Our father Who Art (Nearly) In Heaven, I’m starting to wonder why that […]

Embracing this absurd ambition leads to her downfall. Absurd because a stunted form, governed by the laws of […]
