An incomparable cast gather for this boozy, sultry furore of Southern fireworks. Hugo Weaving will be at his magnetic best as the commanding patriarch. The transcendent Pamela Rabe returns as Big Mama following her Helpmann Award-winning performance in The Children. Harry Greenwood (Cloud Nine) brings fresh brilliance to the stratified role of Brick and Zahra Newman (The Book of Mormon) will give us an unmissable Maggie the Cat. -STC | Get your tickets here!

Sad News: Toby Schmitz cracked Pamela Rabe’s rib

EDIT 18/11: Pamela is ok (no broken rib) and is back on stage tonight! Thanks to Belinda Dyer for letting us know 🙌🏼❤️🙌🏼


Elissa Blake tweeted that “The Dance of Death” was cancelled tonight at the Belvoir St Theatre because Toby Schmitz (who plays Kurt) accidentally cracked Pamela Rabe’s rib on stage.
Wishing her a speedy recovery and hugs ♥️😢 You’re loved, Pam!

Pamela Rabe | The Glass Menagerie

The Glass Menagerie section got an update

I’ve added more info and photos from “The Glass Menagarie” in the Theatre section

A beautiful, slightly haunting play, The Glass Menagerie follows a family as it falls apartalong with the dreams that had given them some ragmented substance. Amanda Wingfield is a single mother played by the great Pamela Rabe. Her son Tom, (Luke Mullins) is an aspiring poet who works in a warehouse, her daughter Laura is studying to become a secretary. They live in a small apartment pent up with fantasies and urges, rage and wounded tenderness. It is not a magnificent existence, but each has one true idea for a better life. Enter the Gentleman Caller …

Photograph 51 | Hear from Nadine Garner and Pamela Rabe

MTC released a new video for Photograph 51 (directed by Pamela Rabe) today.

Rosalind Franklin was one of the great scientists of the 20th Century. In 1952 she used X-ray diffraction photography to examine the intricate structure of DNA, but her trail-blazing work was never recognised. The scientific establishment at King’s College London simply could not cope with her genius, her self-confidence or her stern disregard for authority. Threatened by her brilliance, Franklin’s rivals scandalously stole her research and were awarded the Nobel Prize for discovering the double helix.

A massive hit on the West End, Anna Ziegler’s Photograph 51 relives the chase to find ‘the secret of life’ amidst all the inherent ambition, sexism and isolation of the 1950s, while shining a spotlight on an unsung hero. This intriguing new play is a moving portrait of a brilliant British scientist, and a delicate exploration of what is sacrificed in the pursuit of science, love and a place in history.

MTC favourite Nadine Garner (Di and Viv and Rose) returns to the stage as the fiercely independent Rosalind Franklin, directed by Pamela Rabe (Jumpy) for this Australian Premiere production.
