What’s on at NORPA



Friday 17 – Saturday 18 August 2018

Australia breeds its women tough — and adventurous.
Intrepid performers Roxanne McDonald and Barbara Lowing get behind the wheel and navigate us into risky terrain, journeying through the heart line of their lives and into the hilarious misadventures of the women who made them who they are today.

Grinalong was once famous for the car race, The Grinalong Classic. Fifty years ago the race stopped when a wolf that lived in nearby Tangled Woods destroyed racing cars and the drivers fled in terror. Red and Gran fight for survival, relying on their wit, determination and cunning to overcome the Mayor and win The Classic.

Viral is a story about Art and Zane, two boys who seek to attain internet ‘fame’ in order to become more popular at school and to make some money. It examines the role of social media and technology and how it impacts the way we record, communicate and think about events of racism, abuse and violence in our community.

Eva believes the only way to mend her broken life is to go solo on the road. Lost, alone and unprepared, Eva soon finds herself breaking rules and embracing danger.

After a long night of the soul, encountering wild animals and decidedly odd humans, Eva discovers she can handle any challenge life dares to throw at her.

Like NORPA’s Railway Wonderland and DreamlandWildskin is a joyous fusion of physical theatre, comedy, song and dance presented by a cast of riotous women. Flirting with bush-horror conventions, Wildskin makes for a night of dark and dangerous theatre.
