The wonders and terrors of love, neuroscience and big pharma are put under the microscope and examined with charm and humour in this Critics’ Circle Best Play Award winner by Lucy Prebble: author of the likewise critically acclaimed Enron, and ITV’s Secret Diary of a Call Girl. 

Tristan and Connie, two young volunteers on a clinical trial for a new antidepressant, meet and fall head over heels for each other. But is it the drug, or is it real? And does it matter?

Clarence Jazz Festival

Start date: February 18, 2017

End date: February 26, 2017

Location: Bellerive Boardwalk

Clarence-Jazz-Fest

Australia’s only 9 day jazz festival is turning 21. It’s time to celebrate.

The Clarence Jazz Festival on Hobart’s eastern shore, is a celebration of live music at waterfront locations taking in stunning views of Mount Wellington, beaches and vineyards.

With a picnic atmosphere, it brings local, interstate and international artists to play in stunning locations right when the golden days of Tasmania’s mild summer are at their zenith.

2017’s headline acts include Mike Field (Canada), Adelaide’s Lucky Seven, Melbourne’s The Shuffle Club and Kristin Berardi, while a cadre of the best of Tasmanian jazz also take the stage.

A unique touch to the Clarence Jazz Festival is the ambassador program that features three well-known jazz performers who bring the concerts together, guest with the musicians on stage and engage with the crowd.

This year three favourite ambassadors will join in the celebrations – Melbourne saxophonist and vocalist Paul Williamson, Sydney trombonist and vocalist Dan Barnett, and violinist and vocalist George Washingmachine.

To celebrate its coming of age, the festival is quite literally having a birthday party. With four of the nation’s best boogie and jump jiving bands along with some birthday extras including a jazz history exhibition and a special collector’s edition vinyl release.

Shakespeare In The Gardens: The Merry Wives of Windsor

Start date: February 10, 2017

End date: March 10, 2017

Time: 7pm

Location: Royal Botanical Gardens

Shakespeare in the Gardens

Directions Theatre Pty Ltd is pleased to announce their 19th production in the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens in February 2017 will be Shakespeare’s only thoroughly English comedy The Merry Wives of Windsor. Season runs until March 10th.

Down on his luck, Falstaff thinks the citizens of Windsor will be easy pickings, but he’s been wrong before. In his misguided attempt to seduce the Wives of Windsor, Falstaff makes the mistake of sending two friends the same letter, and they will have their revenge. Falstaff and the Wives, Mistresses Page and Ford, struggle for the upper hand in their games of wooing and deception against a backdrop of larger than life characters. A jealous Master Ford eyes his wife’s activities warily. The impulsive French doctor Caius is caught in a love quadrangle with Page’s daughter, a gallant of ill repute and a fool spurred on by his enthusiastic uncle and the Welsh Priest. In this quiet English town, everyone has an agenda, but it’s not always clear who is playing whom.

Tickets  $25 adults and $15 concession, available at the Gate (cash only) or at Centertainment

Patrons are advised to bring blankets and a picnic, which may include alcohol.

Great Southern Pram Push

Time: 10am-3pm

Location: Cornelian Bay Oval

Great Southern Pram Push

Small Steps (an intiative of Hobart City Mission) have their second annual event ‘THE GREAT SOUTHERN PRAM PUSH’…if it has wheels and can be pushed, you need to be there! It will be a fantastic fun. Pushing from the Regatta grounds to Cornelian Bay along the bike track.  There will be a family fun day with sausage sizzle, facepainting, music and entertainment for all.

Small Steps needs your help with creating awareness and raising funds and this is the way to do it. Get on board, get your friends, organisations, businesses on board. We will be calling upon Politicians, CEO’s, Councillors and the whole of our community to pull together and to support each other. This is what community is all about.

You can push anything ‘alive’ from plants to people, from prams to wheelbarrows…but remember, once you start you have to finish!

PLEASE NOTE: HOBART CITY COUNCIL DOES NOT ALLOW DOGS ONTO THE BIKE TRACK!
