SEASON IV BRINGS STEPTOE AND SON TO THE 1812'S LOWE AUDITORIUM
This classic British comedy tells the story of a middle aged man and his elderly father who run an unsuccessful 'rag and bone' business (collecting and selling junk). Harold wants to better himself but his father always seems to ruin things, sometimes accidentally but often deliberately.
Joined at the hip and heart, they bother, bicker and banter their way through life – toying with each others’ frailties like mean kittens. Bound by birth, business and poverty, their two lives are knitted together as tight as a thrice darned sock.
Darkly comic, and deeply moving, this 20th century icon, charts the tender, cruel and surprising dance of father and son.
Playing in the Lowe Auditorium - 28th May to 20th June. Tickets are available now though our website via the link below.

SEASON V - PATIENT 12 COMES TO THE BAKERY@1812
It’s 1919 and in a Military hospital in Melbourne lies a soldier returned from the battlefields of Europe. Against all odds and in defiance of his injuries he is still alive, although unidentifiable and with no hope of recovery.
Known only as patient 12, who is this man? And who are his next of kin?
Circumstantial factors enable a short list of possible identities to be compiled and their families contacted.
Patient 12’s identity is known to each visitor, but known by a different name. Depending on their individual need, he becomes who they need him to be; and their needs reflect their individual stories and the environment of post-war Australia in 1919.
Playing in the bakery@1812 - 1st October to 24th October. Tickets are available now though our website via the link below.
