Remember 2014? Four one-person shows from some of the world’s best spoken word performers, in an intimate venue for one night each.

The season sold out, and the results were captured by master engineer Ptero Stylus for release as a box set of live albums.

One Night Wonders is back with three new shows in 2015, including the hypnotic Canadian word-wizard Tom Joyce and the high-energy humour of Australia’s internationally celebrated Scott Wings. The shows will take place in Melbourne’s distinctive Lithuanian Club on October 8, November 5 and December 3.

We’ve saved something really special for the final One Night Wonders of 2015.

Stalwart of Australian poetry Judith Rodriguez will take the microphone for a headline set just a few weeks shy of her 80th birthday. Born in Perth and raised in Brisbane, Rodriguez’s body of work looks at life in Queensland, women’s experiences, Australian folklore and everything in between.

To witness Rodriguez deliver her work live will be a privilege, to capture it, master it and allow it to exist forever is a duty we’re honoured to take on.

You can be part of a very limited audience. Entry is open to all by donation at the door, or you can pre-pledge to reserve seats ahead of time right here. Don’t miss the chance to see something never to be repeated.
