Yvonne Hocothee


Master Class

Winning the Tony Award in 1996 for writer Terence McNally, this dramatic production is based on Maria Callas’ master classes at the Juilliard performance school at the end of her career in the 1970s.

Back to the ’80s

The blast from the past provided by the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir’s program of iconic hits celebrating the great hits of the ’80s proved to be just the right note for beginning the June long weekend with an energetic dose of uplifting aural magic.

Lose to Win

The solo performance format can place weighty demands on an actor, but Mandela Mathia breezily rises to the challenge, telling his arresting life story with warmth, charm and humour.

Alone It Stands

You don’t need to know much about rugby to enjoy this warm, effervescent, funny rendition of an iconic match in 1978 between the formidable All Blacks from New Zealand and an amateur team from Limerick in Munster, Ireland.


The play is an adaptation of Anita Heiss’ much-loved novel and now, as a part of Sydney Festival’s Blak Out program, it is Sydney’s turn to enjoy this funny, heartwarming theatrical treat.
