CARLY AND TROY
24 FEB – 6 MAR
Intellectual rigour combined with pathos and side-splitting hilarity – ✮✮✮✮
Rebecca Saffir | TimeOut Sydney
An excellent mash up of the Ibsen classic – ✮✮✮✮
Tim Lloyd | The Advertiser Adelaide
A quirky, clever and contemporary remake
Isabella Pittaway | GLAM Adelaide
This show is very funny and very ‘now’…a clever examination of gender, power, domination, sexuality, personal desires, Beyonce’s “Halo” and macaroons.- ✮✮✮✮

CARLY AND TROY DO ‘A DOLL’S HOUSE’
A work which explores gender, sexuality, power, personal desire… and nineteenth century Norway… maybe.
Carly and Troy do ‘A Doll’s House’ is a show about theatre, about how we view and revere classics, about what we want, what the audience wants but mainly what Carly and Troy want. In just one hour, Carly and Troy will show you their own, personal adaption of the Ibsen classic A Doll’s House. The realist masterwork will be dissected, torn apart and inhabited, culminating in a mash-up of pop-culture, drag, feminist analysis and a lot of butcher’s paper.
After sell out seasons in Sydney, Newcastle, Adelaide and Canberra, Carly and Troy are putting the high heels on again.
