Zizanie a hit at the Adelaide Festival!

Zizanie a hit at the Adelaide Festival!

Restless premieried Zizanie directed by Meryl Tankard in the Space Theatre to critical acclaim:

  •  A show of beauty and perfection. The Advertiser
  • Zizanie is a whole lot of vivid zaniness, full of good spirit, lively imagination, warm heart, and sweet hope. Barefoot Review
  • Zizanie is a beautiful work for adults alone as much as families. And a timely reminder of the power of opening doors rather than building walls. Fest Mag
  • Imaginative, exhilarating, life-affirming and a little zany InDaily
  • full to bursting with wit and whimsy  Limelight
  • Zizanie is delightful; a clever series of images, vignettes and scenes that are woven together to celebrate difference, to ask the audience to embrace others… This is a moving piece of theatre which is very worth sharing with our younger humans  Stage Wispers
  • an emotionally moving presentation that brings tears to the eyes  Sydney Morning Herald
