About the show

Moya Productions and tackroom theatre are thrilled to present the UK premieres of Holiday by Raimondo Cortese and The Eisteddfod by Lally Katz. This double-bill showcases the work of two of the most exciting and contemporary Australian playwrights.

HOLIDAY is an existential musical comedy. Two grown-up men sit beside a child’s paddling pool. Two open souls, they talk freely about life’s oddities, and sing divine songs about the nature of love. #ineedaholiday

Raimondo Cortese won the Green Room award for Best Australian writing for Holiday and has been cited by The Age as “One of the most exciting playwrights around.”

THE EISTEDDFOD is a fresh, poetic farce about an agoraphobic brother and sister, who create a fantasy world inside their own flat. They take abusive lovers, teach advanced level German and train hard to star in Macbeth for the upcoming eisteddfod – which threatens to explode their world forever. #whatsyourpartypiece

Lally Katz’s The Eisteddfod won The New YorkInternational Fringe Festival Producer’s Choice Awards. In 2011 Katz was the most produced playwright in Australia under Shakespeare!

Moya Productions and tackroom theatre’s previous production Mrs Lowry and Son won great acclaim as Critics’ Choice in both the The Telegraph and The Times.
