Darlinghurst Theatre Company today announced a diverse program of contemporary and classic drama for its inaugural season at the Eternity Playhouse. Audiences will have the opportunity to experience and discover high-quality, innovative productions at Sydney’s exciting new theatre venue.
Announced earlier this year, Darlinghurst Theatre Company will open Eternity Playhouse with Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, which will preview from November 1, and open on November 5. Directed by Iain Sinclair, All My Sons is a compelling and heartbreaking story about family ties, patriotic duty and personal greed.
The 2014 season kicks off with the Tony Award-winning musical Falsettos. Wickedly funny lyrics accompany a live piano score in this quirky yet tender tale about family, growing up and what it means to be a man.The impressive line-up continues with the fiercely satirical The Gigli Concert, the wickedly subversive comedy The Young Tycoons, the new Australian play Every Second, Nick Payne’s West End hit Constellations, the return of the sell-out 2013 hit The Motherf**ker with the Hat and rounding off the season is the deliciously fast-paced comedy about love, loneliness, food and friendship, Nick Enright’s Daylight Saving.
Darlinghurst Theatre Company Director Glenn Terry wants audiences to experience the power and possibilities of live theatre and for each production to inspire reflection and dialogue about the world. “Every show in our inaugural season brings together a new team of outstanding artists, who will present their unique artistic vision and perspectives on theatre and life,” he said. “Our inaugural season at the Eternity Playhouse pays homage to independent artists and to theatre itself. From the grand to the intimate, from the tragic to the whimsical and from the small to the infinite, we’ve got it all.
”Opening in November, the Eternity Playhouse is set to become a prominent and iconic theatre destination in Sydney. With its stunning architecture, brand new state-of the-art facilities and iconic place in Sydney’s history, the repurposed Burton Street Tabernacle will be a very special place to see live theatre.
