A New Australian Musical


Created by Jye Bryant

Inspired by the Death Cell Letters of A. G. Scott


The captivating story of Australia’s first gay bushranger, Captain Moonlite, AKA George Scott, who led a ragged bunch of young misfits to stage a siege and shoot out near Gundagai, NSW, where his lover and fellow outlaw, James Nesbitt, would die in his arms. Captain Moonlite would soon after be sent to the gallows in Darlinghurst where he would wear a ring made from James Nesbitt’s hair. Finally we hear his side of the story, told directly from his unsent and suppressed death cell letters.

A New Musical
 
Book & Script by Colby Jones
Music & Lyrics by Jye Bryant
 
A one-act, 90-minute musical based on a (somewhat) true story about a devout Christian woman (Martha) who discovers the face of Jesus burnt into her toast while making breakfast one morning. It touches on family, faith, and one woman’s obsession that almost causes her to lose everything she loves and holds dear. 

A New Revue-Style Musical


Written by Jye Bryant


A modern, one-act revue-style musical for four people.


Although we never meet Steven, we learn all about him through the disclosures of four people in his life: his Wife, Mother, Father and Ex.

 

The characters share intimate details about their life with Steven and the things they struggle to tell him. Interestingly, we learn that Steven has his own secrets and as a result will damage the relationships in his life.


The Things I Could Never Tell Steven reminds us that whenever we choose silence we are inadvertently actioning an outcome and that we are never really free from the consequences of our decisions or indecisions.


It premiered at King Street Theatre, Newtown, NSW 9-12 Dec, 2015 starring SIMON GILLESPIE, CELESTE NOTLEY-SMITH, BROOKE DAVIDSON and LUCAS GLOVER followed by a 2017 season in the Sydney Fringe and New Theatre's Queer Fringe festivals before making its European premiere in County Cork, Ireland in November 2018. In 2019 it was performed in Sydney (Whimsical Productions), Brisbane (Moreton Bay Theatre Company), Belfast (Outside The Lines Theatre Company) & Birmingham (Starlight Theatre UK).
