From Glenn Terry, Artistic Director & CEO
I am very proud to lead Darlinghurst Theatre Company and its wonderful team. We are a professional theatre company with a unique and special model of creating theatre, and place excellence and collaboration at the centre of everything we do. At the very heart of our company is a firm belief that theatre should promote a democracy of ideas. We ensure a broad church of diverse voices are represented on our stage and we develop works with zeitgeist, that explore our lives and challenge the world, forging a direct and powerful connection between artists and audiences.
Most unique is that our company professionally produces and fully resources production concepts proposed and put forward to our company by artists. And we proudly pay our artists at award rates. Each of our productions brings together a new team of outstanding artists, who present their unique artistic vision and perspectives on theatre and life. We offer artists the freedom to stage and tell the stories they want to tell and ensure diverse seasons of innovative, topical and exceptional theatre that connects with audiences and our world.
