We are thrilled to announce Darlinghurst Theatre Company's 2016 season. Showcasing three contemporary Australian works, a timely revival of a great Australian play, a landmark UK drama and a seminal American comedy, the program is rich in vision and broad in appeal.
The season opens with the Olivier Award-winning drama The Pride presented as part of the 2016 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. Then, Patricia Cornelius’ Savages is an exacting investigation of masculinity inspired by a true story. Nick Enright’s A Man with Five Children explores the power of media and the cult of celebrity and Broken is a haunting story of resilience that will resonate deeply with many Australians. The world premiere of Remembering Pirates is a profound and beautiful exploration of human memory and rounding off the season is David Mamet’s comedic masterpiece A Life in the Theatre.
Our Executive Producer Glenn Terry credits an artistically diverse season to our company's unique method of developing our programs. “Each year we do a public call out and ask artists to put forward their production concepts. Our approach comes with added ingredients that you just can’t buy. It comes with passion and drive, with artists working on projects that they are intrinsically connected to. For me this is the gold and makes for the strongest connection between audience and performance,” he said.
“Our 2016 season is rich in vision, ideas and theatricality. Above all, it’s passionate and I feel it’s our best season to date.”
