The last shows of the Arts House 2015 season open over the next few weeks:

EDMUND. THE BEGINNING is both an exercise in distorted biography and a confessional torrent.

In EDMUND. THE BEGINNING, literary giants, sirens, reprobates and infants cavort in existential quadrille. A few you will recognise, others you won’t. All will ring bells.
Since moving to Australia from the United Kingdom over seventeen years ago, Lipson has worked with Melbourne Theatre Company, Malthouse Theatre, Sydney Theatre Company and Belvoir; and many independent companies including The Family, Hayloft, Eleventh Hour, ICE, Stuck Pigs Squealing, Chunky Move and GoD Be IN MouTH.

A riveting new show from subversive creator/performer Nicola Gunn, PIECE FOR PERSON AND GHETTO BLASTER is the story of a man, a woman and a duck – it is about the excruciating realms of human behaviour and an attempt to navigate the complexities of trying to become a better person.

Riffing from personal stories, conflict resolution studies and a desire to answer the question ‘why throw stones at a sitting duck?’, Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster tries to understand how we can all get along.

Based on real-life testimonies and groundbreaking medical research, GIVE ME YOUR LOVE is funny, fragile and profound – it is an investigation into the effects of combat stress.

Give Me Your Love tells the story of Zack, a war veteran who finds himself under a barrage of hostile fire where his enemies are cunning, using every trick in the book to mess with his mind.

The landscape is weird – it’s a cardboard box, in Zack’s kitchen and his wife whispers, kindly, that it’s safe to come out. But is it a trap? If the real enemy is Zack, then who will win if he loses?
