We’re sorry to announce the postponement of JOHN BELL: AND ANOTHER THING due to the NSW Government’s stay at home orders. As soon as we have new performance dates, we’ll be in touch to move your tickets.


Following the sell-out success of JOHN BELL: A FEW OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS, the Australian Living Legend returns to Ensemble Theatre with a brand new show AND ANOTHER THING… featuring more of John’s amusing anecdotes, a personal selection of prose and his witty backstage insights.

As an award-winning actor, acclaimed director and risk-taking impresario, John has been instrumental in shaping the landscape of the Australian arts industry. From acting with the Royal Shakespeare Company, producing David Williamson’s early plays, establishing two theatre companies and directing opera, John Bell is well versed in the world of theatre (to say the least!)

As well as sharing his wealth of experience and performing his top pick of prose, there’s an opportunity for you to get involved. Enter the competition below for the chance to hear John recite YOUR favourite work on the Ensemble Theatre stage.
