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.”

The Poor Kitchen
by Daniela Giorgi

“The anarchists are crazy,
But better than the fascists”

Elle unexpectedly inherits an olive farm in Italy.
The neighbours are colourful,
the food is divine,
but as she tucks into het tagliatelle,
she finds herself at the table with the ghosts of a barbarous past.

Praise for previous work by Daniela Giorgi:

"Talc is a well crafted and well acted emotional hour of must-see theatre"
Aussie Theatre

Talc is a work of originality and independence…Giorgi has created two intriguingly complex characters in this astute portrayal of human life and desires”
The Blurb 

“A tightly-written, tautly-performed, visceral piece" 
Australian Stage Online on Talc

"Friday is more than just another political satire - it strikes at the very confused heart of a sleeping democracy"
Lisa Thatcher

"Friday, by Daniela Giorgi, is a cutting satire.. a witty and insightful production. Friday should be mandatory viewing " 
The Buzz from Sydney

"Friday’s structure is exuberantly quick and sharp... The story is told with crystal clarity.... a great night at the theatre."
