Never the Sinner

October 5 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

‘Never the Sinner’ Tickets Now Available, Opening Soon!

With the ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ now over and bringing our Season Four to a close, we now look towards the thrilling ‘Never the Sinner’ – showing soon in our bakery@1812.

 

Chicago, May 21, 1924.

Nathan Leopold Jr., age 18, and Robert Loeb, age 19, killed 14 year old Bobby Franks and were quickly apprehended when Leopold’s glasses were found near the corpse.

Clarence Darrow defended them, pleading eloquently against capital punishment.

Why would wealthy young men murder an innocent boy?
What demons lurked behind Leob’s flashing good looks?
Behind Leopold’s saturnine intellect?

Showing in the bakery@1812 – 5th to the 28th October, 2017.

The 1812 Theatre joins forces with The Australian Cancer Research Foundation

The 1812 Theatre has joined forces with The Australian Cancer Research Foundation to help raise funds for cancer research.

The ACRF’s funds research into ALL types of cancer, in only the best research institutes right across Australia. Funding applications are assessed on their potential to make ground-breaking progress in cancer treatment, diagnosis, prevention and/or cure, by an esteemed scientific committee of Australian cancer researchers, including Professor Ian Frazer (co-creator of the cervical cancer vaccine and 2006 Australian of the Year).

ACRF’s mission is to end cancer by providing world-class scientists with the equipment they need to improve prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer.

The 1812 theatre is proud to be supporting the ACRF in its fund raising activities.

As part of this initiative theatre patrons will now have the option to donate to the ACRF when attending an event at the theatre or when booking a theatre ticket online.

We look forward to making a positive contribution to this very worthy organisation and appreciate the support of the theatre community in this endeavour.

  • Swamp Fox Productions and cast and crew of 'Strands' made this playwright extremely happy. I loved the production. What a team! The actors were sublime. And the Bakery@1812 is now one of my favourite Theatre spaces. Thanks so much for your bravery and commitment to producing great nights out. Will be back.

  • It was our first time at the 1812 and we purchased tix for our family and my Dad for his 70th birthday. As HUGE fans of the vicar (I met Dawn French earlier this year!) I was not expecting anything too special to be honest. But we were all blown away by the production, the set, the professionalism and the frivolity of the night! To top it off, the supper was awesome. We did not actually have anything to eat as we had eaten dinner before the show but there was such a lovely selection. The immerse photo project was there too which just topped off our night! Fabulous job to everyone! Thanks for making the theatre accessible to all!

  • This was an outstanding production! Somehow it was even funnier than the well known TV production. All actors played their parts beautifully! I really think you could present this year after year and we, the audience, would not tire from it. Laughter is the best medicine and it certainly did me a lot of good. Well done!

  • This theatre is a gem at the foothills of The Dandenongs. The productions are excellent and the pre show drinks and post show supper are a treat.
