Our Vision WELCOME TO THE PARTY! In 2015, La Boite celebrates 90 years of trailblazing theatre. Whichever way you look at it, we are marking the occasion with a diverse program that will excite your senses, ignite your imagination, engage your intellect and remind you of the unique power of live theatre. This cocktail of remixed classics, new Australian stories, highly physical theatre and family favourites encapsulates La Boite's work over the last 90 years - but it's also utterly contemporary. We bring you two greats of our canon, re-imagined in very different ways. A Midsummer Night's Dream is remodelled as a kitsch suburban fantasia and Euripides' Medea is set against a backdrop of the new, super-wealthy global elite. Our commitment to family audiences continues with a new adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's evergreen favourite The Wind in the Willows, starring Play School's Luke Carroll in a one-man tour-de-force, as well as a return season of last year's smash hit, Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts. La Boite's 90 years have been shaped by the enduring influence of inspiring women – names like Babette Stephens, Jennifer Blocksidge and Sue Rider spring to mind – and in 2015, women's voices are as strong as ever. Three of four new commissions are by female playwrights and two of five Mainhouse shows are directed by women. In all, women constitute half of the key creative artists across Mainhouse and Indie shows. Theatre provides a reflection, interrogation and celebration of the world outside its walls. Outside La Boite is a highly multicultural society – it's one of the distinctive features and strengths of our state. So we have been working hard to unearth and develop culturally diverse artists and stories. Prize Fighter will bring five of our top African-Australian actors to the Roundhouse stage and Samson will feature a highly diverse cast of young actors. Across our Mainhouse program, very close to half of the actors will be from non-Anglo backgrounds. Our five Artists-in-Residence in 2015 are from five distinct cultural backgrounds, seeding a range of projects, ensuring that we will continue this commitment in coming years. As it has done for much of its 90 years, La Boite will provide a platform for distinctive new Queensland voices. We will be presenting the plays of three of our previous Playwrights-in-Residence in the Mainhouse program, and La Boite Indie returns with a typically diverse suite of shows traversing contemporary dance, queer philosophical sci-fi and magic realism. We look forward to seeing you in the Roundhouse foyer in this very special year. Come as you are. You needn't bring anything but a spirit of curiosity and an appetite for adventure.

Our Vision

WELCOME TO THE PARTY!

In 2015, La Boite celebrates 90 years of trailblazing theatre. 

Whichever way you look at it, we are marking the occasion with a diverse program that will excite your senses, ignite your imagination, engage your intellect and remind you of the unique power of live theatre. This cocktail of remixed classics, new Australian stories, highly physical theatre and family favourites encapsulates La Boite's work over the last 90 years - but it's also utterly contemporary.

We bring you two greats of our canon, re-imagined in very different ways. A Midsummer Night's Dream is remodelled as a kitsch suburban fantasia and Euripides' Medea is set against a backdrop of the new, super-wealthy global elite. Our commitment to family audiences continues with a new adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's evergreen favourite The Wind in the Willows, starring Play School's Luke Carroll in a one-man tour-de-force, as well as a return season of last year's smash hit, Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes & Dirty Beasts.

La Boite's 90 years have been shaped by the enduring influence of inspiring women – names like Babette Stephens, Jennifer Blocksidge and Sue Rider spring to mind – and in 2015, women's voices are as strong as ever. Three of four new commissions are by female playwrights and two of five Mainhouse shows are directed by women. In all, women constitute half of the key creative artists across Mainhouse and Indie shows.

Theatre provides a reflection, interrogation and celebration of the world outside its walls. Outside La Boite is a highly multicultural society – it's one of the distinctive features and strengths of our state. So we have been working hard to unearth and develop culturally diverse artists and stories. Prize Fighterwill bring five of our top African-Australian actors to the Roundhouse stage and Samson will feature a highly diverse cast of young actors. Across our Mainhouse program, very close to half of the actors will be from non-Anglo backgrounds.
