Xavier Toby has struck comedy gold again, this time with his book Mining My Own Business, about his adventures whilst working Fly in Fly out (FIFO) on a minesite somewhere in Australia.
As an impoverished comedian making ends meet, Xavier is forced to take all manner of jobs to make ends meet while pursuing his passion of being a comedian.
This time around he has landed a well paid admin job up in the mines which will go a long way towards getting him out of debt, but at what cost?
It's been quite a feverish activity of plays and more plays in Perth this month for lovers of theatre. You can catch the last few days of the Independent Theatre Festival which has been running since mid March and is set to end on the 12th April 2014.
The Independent Theatre Festival is an inaugural event brought to us by the Perth Theatre Trust and the Subiaco Arts Centre. For the remainder of this festival, catch the last two plays - The Little Mermaid and Crash Course at the Subiaco Arts Centre.
On a balmy evening, we decided to head down to the Maylands Twilights Markets at The Rise. The markets are a new initiative which kicked off on the Australia Day weekend, and are a popular Saturday night event amongst locals and visitors from other suburbs.
There are plenty of food and drink offerings among the food stalls lining both sides of the grassy amphitheatre. Marcelitas’ Empanadas from the Twilight Hawker markets in the CBD were there and busy as usual, and The Amaizing Stall with its twist on Venezuelan and Australian fusion food was doing a great trade with their offerings of arepa bread, made from maize.
Ben & Jerry’s Open Air Cinemas has kicked off its first season at its open air location in the Perth CBD, with the cinemas already proving popular at other locations around Australia. We headed off to the city for the evening with snacks and picnic rugs in tow and got to the open air cinemas early, looking forward to watch the romance About Time, from Richard Curtis, the same person who brought us Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones’ Diary and Love Actually.
The location of the open air cinemas is on the corner of Plain Street and Riverside Drive, and you can either purchase your tickets online in advance, or book on the night.
Black Swan State Theatre Company's production of A Streetcar Named Desire is now showing at the State Theatre Centre of WA until the 6 April.
A Streetcar Named Desire is Tennessee William's classic 1947 play which begins with fading Southern belle Blanche Dubois arriving in New Orleans' French Quarter to live with her sister Stella and Stella's husband Stanley Kowalski, seeking refuge after a series of family tragedies including the death of her parents and the loss of the family home estate of Belle Reve.
Blanche epitomises the old South, with genteel values and manners, but as the play goes on we will discover that it is a facade of how she perceives herself and how she wishes the world would be.
