Cat Commander writes with precision, humour and heart about intimacy and isolation, our mistakes, fears and desires. Her characters are unsettlingly familiar and accurately drawn.  The Last Time I Saw Richard showcases new Australian writing at its finest. produce quality Australian plays that entertain, enrich and challenge our audience. We have a strong focus on supporting emerging writers and also celebrate and perform the work of more established artists. We have a commitment to giving plays, both local and interstate, their first South Australian season. We believe theatre cannot, and should not, be made in isolation, and therefore we nurture a collaborative environment in the creation of work. We are playwrights, filmmakers, actors and computer programmers and all of these skills influence our approach to collaboration. We have a particular interest in integrating emerging technology into the theatrical form.
