Welcome to our 2018 Season

7 Aug 2017

What an amazing year we have ahead: four world premieres from the best of Australian writers; an exciting adaptation of an award winning French play; four comedy classics from master playwrights and two gripping international dramas to keep you talking.

We are thrilled to open the 2018 season with a new social comedy from David Williamson and bookend the year with Alan Ayckbourn’s timeless classic, THE NORMAN CONQUESTS. Don’t miss Norman’s special trilogy days where you can soak up Ayckbourn’s brilliance – see all three plays in one hilarious outing accompanied by delicious food from Bayly’s Bistro or something sweet or savoury from the bar.

This year, we have the privilege of working with guest directors John Bell, Mitchell Butel, Susanna Dowling, Nadia Tass and Janine Watson, each of whom will bring an exciting production to life. We are thrilled to have Australian theatre legend Reg Livermore back on our stage to help us celebrate our 60th anniversary, along with memorable conversations hosted by Sandra Bates and the Ensemble POP-UP CABARET with Todd McKenney, Mitchell Butel, Queenie van de Zandt and other well-known guests. Throw in Boatshed Projects and a brand-new look, and we feel 2018 is ready to roll! I know you will find something you like and when you do, tell us about it – because without you, there is no us.
