What a surprise to find this little gem in the heart of Cairns out of all towns. Saw a well put together production tackling the social and cultural issues between Aboroginal People and Australian folk. Was so interesting to get an insider perspective as an international traveller. The show was followed by a Q and A session with the director.... More

Visitors to Cairns should check out JUTE theatre.....Many of the live theatre performances are written and acted by people from FNQ....Nice bar and casual atmosphere.After the show go next door to Bernie's Bar.A really cool jazz bar.

I have been to see several shows at JUTE and I have always had a great time. The plays are new, interesting and always original. The theatre is comfortable, has a bar and a great friendly atmosphere. It's located close to restaurants and there is even a Jazz bar next door for drinks after. It's a great night out.

The show was a satirical look at Australian Politics and attitudes to Indigenous Australians while the audience were also treated to an inside look at dynamics of a particular family. It was very well written with razor sharp dialogue and some very amusing performances.
