SYDNEY Theatre Company’s 2016 season is all about stories to be passionate about, brought to life at stunning harbourside venues by the very best Australian theatre-makers.

There are legendary talents, rarely-staged epics, transcendent master works, an invigorating range of new Australian writing and a sweep of award-winning international attractions you will not want to miss.

[showads ad=MREC]Australian Hollywood star Rose Byrne makes a welcome return to the Sydney stage to appear in David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow, while stage and TV favourites Lisa McCune and John Howard also return to Sydney Theatre Company (STC).

Casts also include a host of audience favourites such as Robyn Nevin, Heather Mitchell, Ryan Corr, Sarah Peirse, Helen Thomson and Josh McConville.

Numerous new commissions will have their world premieres at STC, including a new work by Sue Smith (ABC TV’s Brides of Christ and Mabo) and five feisty short plays by young Australian writers.

STC will also stage new productions of classics by Arthur Miller and William Shakespeare, as well as one from closer to home: Louis Nowra’s magnificent, rarely-staged The Golden Age.

In a coup for Sydney audiences, STC will be hosting UK company 1927’s critically-acclaimed Golem, and the Australian-exclusive season of Mike Barlett’s King Charles III – one of the most talked about productions of the last couple of years that will be fresh from West End and Broadway runs.

There’s simply no other place you’ll see a line-up like this.
