What’s On

Welcome to the Party, pal!


It’s Christmas Eve and all New York cop John McClane wants to do is patch things up with his high-powered corporate wife, Holly. Little do they know smooth-talking Hans Gruber and his cabal of Eurotrash terrorists are on their way to hijack celebrations at LA’s Nakatomi Plaza.

With only a gun, a white singlet and the Dad from TV sitcom Family Matters, John McClane must use his wits to survive (and deliver some pithy one-liners).

Full of bare-footed action, danger and our trademark low-fi special effects, this new comedy will have you screaming “Yippee-ki-yay, mother f*@&er!”.

21 November - 1 December at 7.00pm & 8.30pm (Sun-Thurs)
Brisbane Powerhouse, 119 Lamington St, New Farm
Tickets $44/$40



Thank you Sydney!

A huge thank you to everyone who jumped onboard our Volvo bus for “Speed: The Movie, The Play” at the 2019 Sydney Fringe Festival.

More than 1000 people attended 23 shows in 10 days - a huge effort by our crew and audiences alike! Thanks to The Rocks for hosting our bus at the beautiful Atherden Street.

“Love/Hate Actually” also enjoyed a fine run at the Old 505 Theatre in Newtown, including a sell-out final performance.

Check out this video of our final night of “Speed: The Movie, The Play”, and see some of the work required to pack up our tech equipment, props, and of course, the bus!
