Theatre Review: Old Love - Blue Room Theatre, Perth (Performances through May 2nd)

Written by Chris Issacs, Old Love is the latest play from Perth’s theatrical super-group The Last Great Hunt. Fans of the emerging collectives work so far will not be disappointed; Old Love is full of humour, wit and captivating characters, from the sophisticated and sultry older woman Florence (Nicola Bartlett) to the younger vitriolic foot-in-mouth high flying business woman Gabby (Arielle Gray).

Hotel Review on the AU: Twin Room at Ibis Perth

Smack dab in the middle of Perth's busy West End - sitting just 300m from the Murray and Hay Street shopping malls - is the Ibis Perth's 192 room hotel. Though only listed as a three star establishment, it seems unfair to throw it in the same category that many seedy motels around the country seem to get. The Ibis chain are in a league of their own. This may be a low cost hotel, but the decor and amenities easily put it on par with its four and five star cousins in terms of both comfort and experience.

Live Review: Hilltop Hoods + Thundamentals + K21 - Redhill Auditorium, Perth (06.12.14)

After an overcast day before the prospect of going to a gig on an exposed hill off the beaten track was slightly worrying, but then Perth weather has its way of switching seasons to suit. Driving up the highway with a full moon and pink skies it wasn’t hard to find the ambience as you made your way up the dirt road to Redhill Auditorium.
