“B****** Territory showing till 21 June”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

Fantastic 3 act play set in Port Moresby and Darwin across three decades - 1967, 1975 and 2004. The secrets of the stereotyped Australian Expat community are exposed through a family's story told by the 'adopted' son. Strong plot, strong script and very strong cast. This is the premier season of Stephen Carlton's most recent work. Expect to question your upbringing and be both shocked and laugh loudly. A long play at just under 3hours with two intermissions. But not once did you feel it was too long. Don't miss this one - especially if you or your family has spent time living in Northern Australia &/or PNG. You will see plenty of caricatures of your past :)
***Pity Trip Advisor won't let me use the play's proper name...

“Cute and funky little theatre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

I've been to the gallery part of Coca a few times but went to the theatre for the first time to see 'Boy.Girl.Wall'...a fast-paced comedy with one actor playing many characters. It was a fun experience from beginning to end. We enjoyed pre-show reasonably priced drinks and the seats in the theatre were relatively comfortable.
It would have been nice to have the funky arts/gift shop open prior to the show for something to do/look at...and they'd probably score a few sales too.
