A mammoth milestone and the theatrical event of the year – Queensland Theatre’s 2020 Season has been announced

It's the 1980s in a housing estate on the outskirts of Brisbane. A young boy and his mute brother are soon to be erroneously inducted into a complicated world of drugs, crime and domestic violence. Their mum is about to end up in Brisbane's infamous Boggo Road Gaol, and they will be sent to live with their estranged alcoholic father thereafter. This is the story described by award-winning journalist-turned-novelist Trent Dalton in his debut book, Boy Swallows Universe. It is also the story that is about to have its own stage adaptation, having just been announced as the theatrical event of the coming Queensland Theatre 2020 Season.  more

Meat-free Mexican – El Planta takes tacos to new heights at Wandering Cooks

When it comes to culinary pop-ups, the humble taco stand is perhaps the most iconic. Street food doesn't get more beloved than this Mexican staple, so when we say one of Brisbane's best pop-up concepts hawks top-notch tacos, it's unlikely that you'll be surprised. However, there's much more to the story – El Planta at Wandering Cooks is Brisbane's first entirely plant-based Mexican concept, dishing out authentic (and addictive) flavours that are devoid of animal products. more
