Ensemble Theatre is committed to providing a safe environment for everyone.


We’ve decided to reschedule our season of KILLING KATIE: CONFESSIONS OF A BOOK CLUB to Wednesday 12 January – Saturday 19 February 2022.

Based on the current NSW Health advice, we felt this was the best decision to ensure Tracey Trinder’s new comedy gets the world premiere it deserves. Apologies for the inconvenience but the health and safety of everyone visiting and working at the theatre is our priority.

Due to the extended lockdown across Greater Sydney, regretfully we had to cancel THE WOMAN IN BLACK performances until Friday 24 July.

However, rescheduling KILLING KATIE allows us to extend THE WOMAN IN BLACK season into August. Depending on NSW Government COVID-19 restrictions, if we’re able to re-open in the next few weeks then we want to give as many audiences as possible the opportunity to experience this chilling ghost story. Our plan is to offer ticket holders to the cancelled performances of THE WOMAN IN BLACK priority access to the August dates. We’ll be in touch as soon as we have more information about this.

Thanks for your patience while our team first alerts impacted ticket holders.

We’re really grateful for your cooperation and understanding and please stay safe.
