  • YEN by Anna Jordan

    SydneyTheatre | September 27 - October 13, 2018

    “I’m Bobbie. As in Bobbie Dazzler, my Nan says, although I don’t know who that is. And this is my brother Hench. He’s got a face for radio.”

    Hench is 16, Bobbie is 14. They’re home alone in Feltham with their dog Taliban; playing PlayStation, streaming porn, watching the world go by. Sometimes their mum Maggie visits, usually with empty pockets and empty promises.

    Then Jenny shows up.

    YEN poignantly explores a childhood lived without boundaries and the consequences of being forced to grow up on your own.

  • God of Carnage

    SydneyTheatre | October 14, 2018

    GOD OF CARNAGE by Yasmina Reza, directed by Sean O’Riordan

    The comedy of manners.... without the manners.

    What happens when two sets of parents’ meet up to deal with the unruly behaviour of their children? A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name-calling, tantrums and tears before bedtime? Boys will be boys, but the adults are usually worse – much worse. God of Carnage won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy and the Tony award for Best Play.

    After a sold out run at the Hughenden Hotel, Darlo Drama is proud to host an encore performance of God of Carnage in the new Darlo Drama Studio Theatre.

    Starring Warwick Allan, Mel Ryan, Marcelle Weaver and Mark Wilson and directed by Sean O\\\'Riordan, all seats are just $15!

  • Degenerate Art by Toby Schmitz

    SydneyTheatre | October 17 - November 10, 2018

    Red Line Productions presents the World Premiere of

    DEGENERATE ART
    Written & Directed by Toby Schmitz

    at Sydney’s Old Fitz Theatre from October 17

    “All art is at once surface and symbol.
    Those who go beneath the surface do so at their peril.”
    - Oscar Wilde

    A twice-rejected art school applicant rises to political power through the use of charm, cunning and violence. From there, he declares merciless war on ‘cultural disintegration’, ordering an aesthetic purge of the entartete Künstler - the ‘degenerate artists’ - and their work.

    As a result, between 1933 and 1945 one fifth of all artworks in Europe - valued at billions of dollars - are looted by, or have their sale coerced by, the Nazis.

    Acclaimed actor, director and playwright Toby Schmitz returns to his stomping ground, the Old Fitz Theatre, with an incredible ensemble cast of Septimus Caton (This Much Is True), Guy Edmonds (The Moodys, House Husbands), Julian Garner (Killing Ground, Top Of The Lake), Anthony Gooley (Calamity Jane, Assassins), Henry Nixon (The Kettering Incident, Rake), Megan O’Connell (Cleverman, Home & Away) and Rupert Reid (Sunshine, The Village Bike) to breathe life into the story of what happens when a consummate performer - surrounded by yes men - takes it upon himself to shape the cultural future of a nation.
