More than 100 years ago, The Story of Mary MacLane set America aflame. A shocking confessional from a 19-year old girl who refused to succumb to the corset-bound prudery of her age, Mary's scandalous memoir broke all the rules - and sold over 100,000 copies. Mary's writings come to the stage in a bold and magical monologue for two, backed with original music composed and performed by Tim Rogers (You Am I). At IPAC Wollongong 15 - 19 May.

In the late 19th century, the Illawarra played host to one of the first incidents of violent resistance by white Australians to new arrivals, when a group of colonists attacked and burned new settlements at a place called Charcoal Creek, now known as Unanderra. Inspired by this historical footnote, playwright Marcel Dorney tells a chilling, moving and ultimately revealing story about the extraordinary power of ignorance and fear. At IPAC Wollongong 5 - 16 June.

Toby Schmitz stars in Noel Coward's fizzingly witty comedy of manners, Private Lives. The censors did their best to ban Private Lives when Coward wrote it in 1930, and it has been refusing to behave for more than 80 years now. Its wit is definitive, its plotting almost perfect, and its critique of modernity dazzling. An astute observer of human folly, Private Lives is Noël Coward at his sharpest. At IPAC 14 - 17 November.
