- The Captive Mind (Milosz Czeslaw 1953, 1980) 16 August 2018A key Polish text about totalitarian ism and the arts.
- The Day (Jonas Geirnaert & Julie Mahieu 2018) 15 August 2018A siege in a small bank, alternating episodes telling the inside and outside stories.
- You Can't Ask That (Kirk Docker 2018) 14 August 2018We're now in the third series of this ABC show, in which 'marginalised Australians' answer questions. We've watched survivors of child sexual abuse, priests, drag queens (and king) this season.
- Belvoir: A Taste of Honey (Shelagh Delaney 1958) 12 August 2018Something terrible happened between the page and this stage. We didn't leave at interval, a decision we came to regret. Too often the words spoken told us what was happening between the characters, but we saw no other evidence of it. Image by Daniel Boud from Belvoir site.
- Bonus Family, Season 2 (Clara Herngren & Felix Herngren 2018) 11 August 2018More of the same excellent mess in a Swedish blended family. There's a contrived plotline about paternity, but otherwise the second season complicates things by means of new relationships and old family members.
- The Captive Mind (Milosz Czeslaw 1953, 1980) 16 August 2018
