A great list of things to do in St Kilda delivered to you every Sunday evening

Bright World @ Theatreworks
13 Apr – 30 Apr, 8 pm and various matinees
1938. Europe burns. Young Jewish couple Hans and Alice Herskovics mount a dangerous escape from Nazi-occupied Vienna. Half a world away, Yorta Yorta leader William Cooper leads a deputation to the front door of Melbourne’s German Consulate.
Nearly eighty years later, two playwrights come together on page and stage to explore the legacy of their ancestors in a unique cross-cultural collaboration. From Austria to Australia, from a Deb Ball in Benalla to a Brighton Bat Mitzvah, Bright World is a genre-bending trip into the heart of our history-making.

redstitch_rosieFinal week of Splendour @ Red Stitch
Until 16 April
In an opulent drawing room, Kathryn, a photographer, waits to take a portrait. A wife, a friend and an interpreter wait with her. Prada shoes, vodka and light fingers tap out the time while a revolution stirs beyond the presidential gates. Splendour is a striking tale of power and secrets.
It’s been described as a game of chess on stage – you wont want to miss out.
