Ghost Machine | Laura DavisPart story telling, part performance art, all hilarity, Laura Davis shines (albeit with the help of some fairy lights), underneath the 250 thread count sheet as she weaves her way through some hard hitting truths sprinkled with self-deprecating humor.

Davis plays the role of otherworldly being and keeps the audience under her spell with her quick wit and sharp mind. She is funny, sweet and all too relatable.  Discussing the constant sexism and struggles a female comic faces even in 2018, Davis has the ability to veer from wildly absurd to heartbreakingly real in an instant, leaving her mark upon the audience with an honesty and authenticity that is refreshingly real.

It’s easy to see why this award-winning act is so beloved the world over. Don’t miss this talented performer and her brilliantly oddball show that asks more questions than it answers and leaves you feeling both confused and joyful.

Most read Melbourne reviews

  • Miss Saigon | Opera Australia
    Entirely sung through, this is a musical with a proper and original score that still feels remarkably fresh and sits in staggering contrast to the slot machine pay outs of a Jukebox musical.
  • A Very Jewish Christmas Carol | Melbourne Theatre Company
    Just like the source material, this is a morality tale, a fantasy to reflect dysfunction, rectify disappointment and repair disillusion but legacy and intergenerational grief are tenacious task masters.
  • The Choir of Man
    This is a really well put together production, a great night out and so incredibly worthy of the success its found in venues around the world.
  • Groundhog Day The Musical
    This is more than just a screen to stage relocation, this a heartfelt re-examination seeking, discovering and transposing essence.
  • Smash It | Circus Oz
    This kooky show is intergenerational mayhem at its finest, with cast members representing millennial, Gen Zs, Baby Boomers and everything in between.
