Hurry! Time is running out for Melburnians to see The Extraordinary Shapes of Geoffrey Rush before it closes on 3 November.

We will be sad to say goodbye to this fascinating exhibition celebrating one of Australia’s best-known and most-respected actors. Featuring costumes, photographs, moving image and personal items, the exhibition highlights roles created by Geoffrey Rush in plays including Exit the King, The Diary of a Madman and The Importance of Being Earnest, and in films such as Shine, Quills, Pirates of the Caribbean and The King’s Speech.

The following two weeks will be a very busy time for the Performing Arts Collection staff as we bump out The Extraordinary Shapes of Geoffrey Rush and install a new exhibition hot on its heels…stay tuned for details, because it’s going to be a real stunner!
