The reviews are in!

“Each and every crafted monologue was skillfully written, empathetically delivered, interesting, unique and bold. 
This is what true theatre is all about! 
… all in all absolutely sublime.… 

with a cast that knocked the ball out of the theatrical park
.… a rich, funny, vibrant edge of your seat show. 

I can not recommend And Now to Bed enough, 
you will not be disappointed.”   

Theatre Unzipped

“an exciting process that makes for one of the best nights of theatre on the Sydney calendar…… Highly recommended.”
Lisa Thatcher

"There is beautiful writing… vivid moments…

confident cast of actors who all bring a warm earnestness to what they are willing to share.”
Suzy Go See

"a fantastic show with a collection of stories that are both unique and affecting and highly relatable....
 if And Now to Bed isn’t on your calendar, put it on...
Each performance is a finely tuned microcosm that together, bring some excellent and amusing writing to brilliant life."

"The method is addictive 
... And Now to Bed is deeply engaging ranging from funny to poignant to confronting by turn, the different perspectives offered of human sexuality skillfully woven into a revelatory and ultimately reverential whole..... 
once again the Subtlenuance team 
has delivered a compelling piece of theatre."   
South Sydney Herald

And Now to Bed is a uniformly fine ensemble piece 
from both writers and players… it will hopefully prove to be the sleeper hit of the Sydney theatrical season.”

All The Difference
written and directed by Paul Gilchrist
performed by Kathryn Schuback

22 - 26 September, Old 505 Theatre

Live A Life Without Fear - because it's not yours!

Flik has a story to share. 
It’s very funny, rather sad, and entirely out of her control. 
And completely up to you!

"Sliding Doors" meets "Choose Your Own Adventure" in this playfully interactive exploration of the power of choice.
Played by the brilliant Kathryn Schuback, 
Flik has too many choices and she needs your help.
At key points in the story you, the audience, vote to decide Flik’s choices.
What follows is surprising, hilarious and utterly exhilarating.

Choice is a First World problem.
Denial is the First World solution.
And here’s a first class theatrical exploration of the phenomena 
by one of our premier creators of new work.

With All The Difference subtlenuance continues its practice of creating original theatre that’s stimulating, deeply moving and highly entertaining. 

Praise for subtlenuance’s last one woman show, the nationally toured Blind Tasting by Paul Gilchrist: 

"a delight; intimate, funny, sad, and thoughtful" Stage Whispers 

"a barrel of fun... If you ever hear it's on, go" Sydney Morning Herald 

"At times heart wrenching, but mostly heartwarming and hilarious,
this was a brilliantly written show that held me captive from start to end”
The AUReview

a punchy, whimsical tale superbly written....
fun, thought-provoking and insightful" 
Theatre Junkies 

“playful, witty and poetic throughout ….. thoroughly entertaining” Fringe Review 

"One of those little treasures of a play that fills your glass with optimism,
spills a bit with the laughs, and finds truth"
Canberra Times

“a well crafted, tasty piece of small, intense theatre that ponders
some deeply philosophical questions”
 The Adelaide Advertiser
