The Front Page by Ben Hecht & Charles Macarthur | New Theatre | April 23 - May 18


“A Journalist is a cross between a bootlegger and a whore.” Late at night, in the crowded press room at Chicago’s Criminal Court, a group of reporters is waiting to cover a controversial execution the next morning. Then an unexpected event breaks through the banter and bravura, and suddenly a scoop is on the cards.


This landmark comedy from 1928 introduced the now-familiar character of the hard-living, wise-cracking reporter chasing the big story, no matter what. In this fresh adaptation, complete with some gender swapping, the satire on corruption, manipulation and scandal in politics, journalism and justice still hits a nerve.

A Case for the Existence of God | Seymour Centre | 11 April - 4 May


Outhouse Theatre Co and Seymour Centre are proud to present the Australian premiere of the highly-acclaimed, A Case for the Existence of God, 11 April – 4 May. Named one of the best plays of 2022 by The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Vulture and Time Out New York, A Case for the Existence of God is both intimate and expansive - exploring themes of financial insecurity, parenthood, and what is possible when we truly open up to someone else. Ryan is a straight, white, recently divorced factory worker while Keith is gay, black, the single caretaker of a foster daughter and a mortgage broker. When Ryan seeks Keith's help to secure a loan and buy back land that his family lost, the two men discover they share "a specific kind of sadness" and unexpectedly choose to bring one another into their fragile worlds. Infused with empathy, humour, and heart-wrenching honesty, Samuel D. Hunter graces audiences with what is possible when we seek common ground and embrace our shared humanity.
