The Weekend Australian - Review - - Out & About - John McCal­lum

en­tan­gled in ma­chine pol­i­tics, pub­lic cor­rup­tion and per­sonal trau­mas. Fitzger­ald is bril­liantly played by Dan Spiel­man, whose fever­ish en­ergy and in­tense con­cen­tra­tion are per­fectly suited to the role. Sewell’s play is still highly provoca­tive af­ter more than 30 years and its mes­sage, that hu­man vi­sion can al­ways be be­trayed by hu­man fail­ure, is still pow­er­ful. Belvoir St Theatre, 25 Belvoir Street, Surry Hills. To­day, 2pm and 8pm. Tick­ets: $37-$72. Book­ings: (02) 9699 3444 or on­line. Un­til March 20. Shift­ing Hori­zons A se­ries of mixed-me­dia works in­spired by im­pe­rial burial sites in Xi’an and sur­round­ing provinces in China rep­re­sent artist Hanna Kay’s fo­cus on the con­nec­tion be­tween the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment and his­tory. Af­ter vis­it­ing China, Kay cre­ated the oil paint­ings and sculp­tures based on the war­rior burial pits. Janet Clay­ton Gallery, 406 Ox­ford Street, Padding­ton. Ad­mis­sion free.
