A New Australian Musical

Created by Jye Bryant

Inspired by the Death Cell Letters of A. G. Scott

A one-act (75 min) musical featuring five (5) men, tells the captivating story of the Irish-born, Australian bushranger, Captain Moonlite, AKA Andrew ‘George’ Scott, who led a ragged bunch of young misfits to stage a siege and shoot out near Gundagai, NSW. The musical is set in a death cell of Sydney’s Darlinghurst Gaol on the eve of Captain Moonlite’s execution in 1880. We hear (told directly from his unsent and previously suppressed death cell letters) about the events that led up to his execution including the birth of the Captain Moonlite legend, the alleged bank robbery and the siege and shoot out that led to the death of his male lover and fellow outlaw, James Nesbitt.

Premiered at Redcliffe Musical Theatre (QLD) from 21-30 August 2020.

A New Musical

Created by Jye Bryant

A modern, one-act revue-style musical for four people.

Although we never meet Steven, we learn all about him through the disclosures of four people in his life: his Wife, Mother, Father and Ex. The characters share intimate details about their life with Steven and the things they struggle to tell him. Interestingly, we learn that Steven has his own secrets and as a result will damage the relationships in his life.

The Things I Could Never Tell Steven reminds us that whenever we choose silence we are inadvertently actioning an outcome and that we are never really free from the consequences of our decisions or indecisions.


Premiering at King Street Theatre, Newtown, NSW (9-12 Dec, 2015) starring SIMON GILLESPIE, CELESTE NOTLEY-SMITH, BROOKE DAVIDSON and LUCAS GLOVER followed by a 2017 season in the Sydney Fringe and New Theatre's Queer Fringe festivals before making its European premiere in County Cork, Ireland in November 2018. In 2019 it was performed in Sydney (Whimsical Productions), Brisbane (Moreton Bay Theatre Company), Belfast & Newry, UK (Outside The Lines Theatre Company).

Based on Margery Williams' 1922 classic tale which reminds audiences of all ages that magic happens when we stay true to ourselves.

This new Australian musical features a heart-warming script by Jeannie Melinz which crafts a subtle gender inclusivity (currently underplayed on the family stage) while Jye Bryant's enchanting musical numbers and witty lyrics capture the essence of the fun, innocence, fears and friendship forged between a boy and his favourite toy.
