The big wet continues in the south-east and west of the state. Wonder how, if at all, this has affected box-office figures for companies.

There’s one week to go for Hamlet for La Boite and The Little Dog Laughed for Queensland Theatre Company; both close on Saturday. Avenue Q at QPAC has had an extension to its season.
