Theatre Works, a small organisation by the beach that has been consistently punching above its weight for over 40 years, they had a tremendous 2022 and it looks as though 2023 will raise the bar once again.
2023 is jam-packed with new perspectives explored through stories and theatrical experiences that haven’t been heard or experienced before and familiar stories told in new ways. From brand-new Australian writing to well-established classics, and devised and physical works – Theatre Works is presenting a smorgasbord of excellence with something for everyone’s theatrical palette.
From Australian classics to brilliant new Australian works and collaborations with artists from around Australia and the world. We will continue with our professional and industry development programs, strengthen our relationships with the local and artistic communities, and deepen our investment in the future of Australian theatre artists and theatrical practices.
Some highlights of the program include: fresh looks at plays by Australian theatre giants, Away by Michael Gow directed by visionary director Steven Mitchell Wright (MEDEA: out of the mouths of babes), In the Club by Patricia Cornelius directed by Greenroom Award winner Kitan Petkovski (No Ball Games Allowed, The Gospel according to Jesus Queen of Heaven), Moth by Declan Greene directed by Briony Dunn (The Human Voice) and the return of When the Rain Stops Falling by Andrew Bovell with Iron Lung Theatre, new Australian writing including; Nigerian born, Igbo actor and playwright Amarachi’s AKARAKA, Flick’s SLUTNIK ™: Planet of the Incels, Jodi Gallagher’s Prophet , sapphic drama The Milf and Mistress by Jane Montgomery Griffiths and exciting works by established artists such as The Long Pigs directed by Susie Dee, No Performer has ever Performed this Performance Before (NFP) #8 by Born In A Taxi, Songs of the Flesh by The Danger Ensemble for Midsumma Festival and Lyric Opera return to the Theatre Works stage. – and that’s just scratching the surface of this epic program!
