Eight Letters

Inspired by the song, Eight Letters by Paul Baribeau, Imperfect Creatives is creating a confronting new play, grounded in the eight letters a young woman writes for her recently ex-lover. The work deals with the stages of extreme heartbreak and the effects it has on mental health, which leaves the audience reflecting on how every story has a different perspective. 


Set in the 1970’s, the stark and sterile white set will be brought to life by complex projection mapping blending the subconscious with the conscious, all tied to together by a live jazz trio interpreting angsty, down tempo post-punk music. ‘Eight Letters’ will showcase one person’s spiraling decay, expressed by an audio-visual deluge. 

‘Eight Letters’ articulates the full body ache of lost love and the delusional, erratic side it can bring out in all of us. The piece represents the need for the heartbroken to search for something real from someone who your feelings for are as strong as ever. It takes eight varying letters – spurred on by memories and dreams – to discover that sometimes the letters we hold onto are what starts the process of healing.

Created and produced by Jack Kelly, Craig Cauchi and Brie Jurss. Set and design by Jack Kelly and Frank Godoy. Performed by Brie Jurss  and three local musicians.

It's Hot Like
The Sun

by Madeleine Border & Honor Webster-Mannison

November 2021

A post-apocalyptic love song to humanity, re-framing an environmental crisis to explore femininity at the end of the world.

Directed by Zed Hopkins & Karina White, ‘Sometimes It’s Hot Like the Sun’ is a bubbling exploration of humanity. It’s a ruckus that celebrates the hilarity and chaos of the human experience by investigating how we understand our personal and shared identities in a world on the brink of collapse.

This contemporary piece of Australian theatre was written by Brisbane playwrights, Madeleine Border and Honor Webster-Mannison, before being published by Playlab in 2020. In partnership with the playwrights, Imperfect Creatives will be producing the first redevelopment of the work since its publication.


Cast includes Meg Bowden, George Harris & Brie Jurss

Anywhere Festival May 2019

‘Once a decision is made… you can’t go back’

Six twenty-something year old’s reunite for a private getaway in the West Australian Outback. Road tripping for hours, they sing at the top of their lungs, coming together as if they had never been apart. Just them, the open road and the land, on a trip that couldn’t go wrong- until it does. Their actions, reactions and how they process the events that follow will change their lives forever.

FLOOD by Chris Isaacs can act as a warning to us as a nation to move forward by exploring identity and the unconscious racial bias in our country.

A night of unique storytelling at The University of Queensland in The Great Court. 

“That night, that piece of dirt out there, we owned it. It was ours.”

Cast includes Meg Bowden, Campbell Lindsay, Tom Yaxley, Brendan Perez-Compton, Brie Jurss, Emma Lamberton
