Eternity Playhouse opened in November 2013 and has quickly become a prominent and iconic theatre destination in Sydney. This 127 year old heritage listed building was recently restored and renovated by City of Sydney into a state-of-the-art theatre and new home for Darlinghurst Theatre Company.
The former Baptist Tabernacle was named in honour of Sydney identity, Arthur Stace who became known as ‘Mr Eternity'. It was in this very church that Stace heard the sermon that inspired him to anonymously chalk ‘Eternity’ on the city’s footpaths for over 30 years.
Darlinghurst Theatre Company worked closely with City of Sydney and architects Tonkin Zulaikha Greer to create a technically advanced theatre that is also welcoming, accessible and intimate. With its stunning architecture and iconic place in Sydney’s history, Eternity Playhouse is a remarkable and very special place to see live theatre.
