After a cold and accoustically challenging outing at Underbelly Arts Festival (Cockatoo Island), a hot’n’ready showing at Crack Theatre Festival (TINA, Newcastle), 100 Years of Lizards crawled with their glimmering tales into the dark and quirky surrounds of The Old 505 Theatre.

Augusta Supple

Sydney-based theatre director, producer and writer. This site is about my long, deep, bright-eyed, ever-hopeful, sometimes difficult, always invigorating, rambunctious, rebellious, dynamic and very personal relationship with Australian Arts and Culture...
