Film 1 at 1.45pm – ‘Rumpelstiltskin’ – Rated G

For the whole family, from 8 to 108! ‘Rumpelstiltskin’ - performed by State Theatre Company and Windmill Theatre. By Rosemary Myers and Julianne O’Brien, based on the tales by the Brothers Grimm. Spinning straw into gold is a party trick that will take you far. It can buy you a big house full of beautiful things, a wardrobe of designer clothes and a life of total luxury, but money, as they say, can’t buy you… Two people, once best friends, torn apart by desire for the things they cannot have. The exquisitely mercurial Paul Capsis stars as a shapeshifting imp whose thirst for vengeance may well bring him undone. He joins the team that brought you award winning ‘Pinocchio’, as they take on a new and equally fantastic fairy tale, with their unique brand of theatrical spectacular, rocking music and supreme silliness. ‘Rumpelstiltskin’ is full of twists and turns, it’s a whole new spin on a heart of gold.

Film 2 at 5.00pm – ‘Liberty, Equality, Fraternity’ – Rated M

Is Big Brother watching you? Produced by Sydney’s Ensemble Theatre, and written by Geoffrey Athereden, the creator of the famous ABC’s ‘Mother & Son’ comes ‘Liberty, Equality, Fraternity’, a laugh-out-loud parody of our surveillance society, where Australian politics and culture are put under the microscope. Orlagh O’Connor has never considered herself a threat to national security. So why is she under surveillance and being interrogated? In a very comedic way, Athereden tests our complacency about the State’s intelligence gathering, our impulse to share personal information with the social media world (Facebook, etc.) and our right to privacy. It stars Caroline Brazier from ABC’s ‘Rake’ and Andy Ryan from ‘INXS’ the TV series.

Film 3 at 7.30 pm – ‘The Wharf Revue’ – Rated M

‘The Wharf Revue’, presented by the Sydney Theatre Company, is a brilliant, witty satirical take on past and present indignitaries, where no politician or celebrity is safe! This performance celebrates the Wharf Review’s 15th year of producing works that mercilessly mock all the usual suspects through side-splitting satirical silliness and musical mayhem. Starring Amanda Bishop, Jonathan Biggins, Drew Forsyth and Phillip Scott.
