Faith Healer

Saturday 4th March - Saturday 8th April @ Melbourne Theatre Company, Southbank Theatre

The critical triumph of Sydney’s theatre year sees The Fantastic Francis Hardy working his magic, curing the sick and giving strength to the weak. His powers are real. Or so he says, and sometimes believes. He can tell you of nights when miracles were conjured as fast as he could place his touch. But that was long ago and his powers are far less reliable these days. More of a mystery now is why his embittered wife and hapless manager still put such faith in him after all that’s happened.

With its mythic resonance and drama of Gaelic folklore, Faith Healer is considered to be Irish playwright Brian Friel’s masterpiece, where characters take turns wrestling with the past, proving that memory can be as unreliable, and as contradictory, as faith. This production, directed by Judy Davis, stars Paul Blackwell (God of Carnage) as the crass showman-cum-manager Teddy, Alison Whyte (Summer of the Seventeenth Doll) as the faithful yet disillusioned wife Grace, and Colin Friels (Skylight) as the melancholic, charismatic Francis Hardy.

Playing at MTC's Southbank Theatre
March 4-April 8, 2017

Anne Edmonds - No Offence, None Taken

Thursday 30th March - Sunday 23rd April @ Victoria Hotel - Banquet Room, Melbourne CBD

No offence guys, but Anne ‘Eddo’ Edmonds is widely recognised as one of Australia’s most exciting stand-up and character comedians. None taken?

Following a stellar 2015, which saw her sell out shows around the country, score rave reviews and walk away with the highly coveted, peer-nominated Comic’s Choice Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Anne’s 2016 did not disappoint. She was nominated for the Barry Award for the best show at Melbourne International Comedy Festival and was part of the group who won the Directors’ Choice Award for True Aussie Patriots.

She’s been seen on Network Ten’s Have You Been Paying Attention?, ABC’s Fancy Boy and, in 2017, she will star in her very own ABC TV show Edge of the Bush.

Anne Edmonds - No Offence, None Taken

Tom Ballard - Problematic

Thursday 30th March - Sunday 23rd April @ Melbourne Town Hall, Supper Room

A funny show about whether anything can be funny anymore.

Tom Ballard doesn’t like to brag, but he is desperate for validation, so let’s talk about his achievements. 2016 brought him nominations for Best Show at both the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, aka the two biggest live comedy awards in the world.

No biggie.

He also nabbed the inaugural Pinder Prize (a grant named in honour of comedy impresario John Pinder), made his American television debut on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival and took out the Helpmann Award for Best Comedy Performer.

Tom’s podcast 'Like I’m A Six-Year-Old' continues to grow from strength to strength and at the end of 2016 he appeared in SBS’s ground-breaking series First Contact.

Simply put, Tom Ballard is a very funny and very interesting comedian. Don’t miss seeing one of the country’s most exciting and insightful voices live onstage as he tackles everything from PC to outrage culture to race relations.

Claire Lambe: Mother Holding Something Horrific

Saturday 8th April - Sunday 25th June @ ACCA, Southbank

In this major exhibition of newly commissioned work, the artist’s most ambitious project to date, Claire Lambe employs sculpture, photography, biography and theatrical mise-en-scène to create intimate and intense psychological spaces in an ambitious attempt to describe the human condition in its cruel reality and horrifying glory.

Known for her strange and often abject sculptural forms, Claire Lambe’s work explores psychological narratives of gender, sexuality, identity and class, leading to anxious objects full of revelatory and emancipatory potential. In a deeply subjective and sometimes transgressive practice of psychodrama and catharsis, Melbourne-based and English-born Lambe draws upon a rich bank of personal history and reference material as a starting point for her investigation into the ambiguity between memory and experience, reality and re-enactment.

Claire Lambe: Mother Holding Something Horrific will charge ACCA’s extensive gallery spaces with a series of dramatic installations that are at once uncanny, anarchic and full of life and libido. The installation will be further enlivened by an occasional series of performances by contemporary dancer and choreographer Atlanta Eke which will develop in the gallery space over the course of the exhibition, continuing an ongoing collaboration between the two artists.

Australian Centre for Contemporary Art
111 Sturt Street, Southbank VIC 3006, Melbourne, Australia
10 am–5 pm Tuesday to Friday; 11 am–5 pm weekends and public holidays, Monday by appointment.

Triple R subscriber screening - Raw

Tuesday 11th April @ Cinema Nova, Carlton

RAW made its World Premiere in Cannes Critics Week where it won the coveted FIPRESCI Prize, and left audiences aghast with some of the most shocking and powerful on-screen imagery since Gaspar Noe’s IRREVERSIBLE.

RAW is one of the finest directorial debuts in the genre space in a long time. It tells the story of a teenage girl who joins her sister at a prestigious veterinary college, and is forced to partake in a hazing ritual that sees her defying her vegan upbringing by consuming raw rabbit liver. From here she develops an insatiable desire for flesh (of all types) and what we witness is a coming-of-age like no other, an awakening that is carnal and primal and that takes its central character, and its viewing audience, on a journey that is simultaneously harrowing and beautiful. Director Julia Ducournau has made something very special here, a gorgeous cinematic exploration of family and cannibalism, a film that’ll seep its way deep into your psyche and resonate long after the closing credits – make no mistake, this is one of the films of the year.

*Triple R subscribers: for the chance to win a double pass to a special preview screening of RAW on Tuesday April 11, 6:30pm at Cinema Nova Carlton, email raw@rrr.org.au with your full name and subscriber number in the subejct line by 5pm Thursday April 6.

*Triple R subscribers can also call the station at 11am on Thursday April 6 during SmartArts for the chance to win a double pass to the screening.

*Only subscribers with a paid annual subscription are eligible for giveaways. Winners of the email competition will be notified via email.

RAW is in cinemas from April 20.

Triple R subscriber screening - Get Out

Tuesday 18th April @ Cinema Nova, Carlton

In Universal Pictures’ Get Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele, when a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, The Cabin in the Woods).

At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.

Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, Get Out is written and directed by Peele (Key and Peele) and produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum, as well as Sean McKittrick (Donnie Darko, Bad Words), Edward H. Hamm Jr. (Bad Words) and Peele. 

*Triple R subscribers: for the chance to win a double pass to a special preview screening of Get Out on Tuesday 18 April, 6:45pm at Cinema Nova Carlton, email getout@rrr.org.au by 5pm Thursday 13 April with your full name and subscriber number in the subject line.

*Triple R subscribers can also call the station at 11am on Thursday 13 April during SmartArts for the chance to win a double pass to the screening.

*Only subscribers with a paid annual subscription are eligible for giveaways. Winners of the email competition will be notified via email.

Get Out is in Cinemas from May 4 through Universal Pictures Australia.
