Felicity Ward: Busting a Nut

Shortlisted for the Edinburgh Comedy Award 2018, Felicity Ward's latest hour is full of pep, whip-smart cyncism and red lipstick. 

What we said: "Although it belatedly touches upon her depression and alcoholism, Busting a Nut is a relatable summary of her pique with the world."

The Garden of Unearthly Delights, 8:30pm, 24 Feb, $38

Briefs: Close Encounters

The longstanding burlesque boys combine Herculean physicality with high artistic and production values. (@Briefsfactory).

What we said: "Love, dance and scantily clad Australians – what more could you want in a show."

RCC Fringe, 9:30pm, 5-16 Mar, not 11, $55

Build a Rocket

A fling with a local DJ leads to single motherhood for schoolgirl Yasmin. (@HoldenStreet).

What we said: "'Dear Dickhead'. So begins Build a Rocket with teen Yasmin composing an email to Daniel, the absent father of the son growing inside her... a one-woman play of triumph over adversity."

Holden Street Theatres, various dates and times between 12 Feb - 17 Mar, $18 - $28

Games by Henry Naylor

Two athletes hide their Jewish origins during the 1936 Olympics. 

What we said: "An impressively polished production with slick parallels to the resurrection of fascism today."

Holden Street Theatres, dates and times vary, $18-22
