New Theatre launches 2024 Season

A message from Artistic Director, Louise Fischer:

It is so exciting to once again be able to announce a full year of productions. And what a line up we have for 2024: eight amazing plays, including three Australian premieres and two Sydney premieres.

The nitty-gritty truths of modern relationships, gay and straight, are explored in Homos, or Everyone in America by Jordan Seavey and Wife by Samuel Adamson.

There’s a brace of brilliant satires exposing the disreputable underbelly of the fourth estate in Ink by James Graham and the 1928 classic The Front Page by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur.

There’s the blackest of black comedies from a master of the genre: Hangmen by Martin McDonagh, winner of the 2015 Oliver Award for Best New Play.

We’re mounting new productions of plays by two of Australia’s most acclaimed contemporary female play wrights: Atlantis by Lally Katz and Sunset Strip by Suzie Miller.

And rounding off the year, the stage adaptation of an Oscar-winning rom-com: Shakespeare in Love, based on the screenplay by Marc Norman & Tom Stoppard, adapted for the stage by Lee Hall.

The productions will be helmed by a group of dynamic and imaginative directors. Returning to lead shows are Deborah Mulhall (‘The Lieutenant of Inishmore’, ‘Pygmalion’, ‘The Lovely Bones’), Madeleine Withington (‘Banging Denmark’) and Alex Kendall Robson (‘Bathhouse, the Musical’), and we welcome Tiffany Wong, Nicholas Papademetriou, Annette van Roden and Darrin Redgate, all making their New Theatre directorial debuts.

We look forward to seeing you in at New Theatre throughout 2024.
