Fairfax Studio, Arts Centre Melbourne - 100 St Kilda Road
Melbourne
VIC
A somewhat accurate, sort of factual, non-fiction story, this comic Broadway hit makes its Australian premiere in a production directed by Petra Kalive (Sexual Misconduct of the Middle Classes). Nadine Garner (Photograph 51) stars alongside Steve Mouzakis (Death and the Maiden) and Ngāti Toa actor Karl Richmond (Punk Rock) – making his MTC debut – in a play about an epic ideological battle over the nature of truth and the value of storytelling.

Audio described theatre. A homecoming. A picnic. A party. A leavetaking. It’s an uncertain time. Change is coming, you can sniff it in the air. A family returns to a home that’s seen better days – but it still has its orchard. Precious, beautiful, but…in the way.

HotHouse Theatre Gateway Island, Lincoln Causeway
Wodonga
VIC
Originally programed to open the 2020 Season, Breaking the Castle brings a timely conversation about being in and out of control.

David can’t get enough, of anything. Alcohol, drugs, women, gambling – whatever it takes to escape the bark of the black dog. Consumed by an overwhelming feeling of never belonging anywhere, days and nights are lived through a thick haze of drugs and alcohol. This bender could be his last, but he doesn’t care – there are worse things than death.

Melbourne

Award-winning French playwright Florian Zeller’s The Father wowed MTC audiences with a sell-out season in 2017. With The Truth, he delivers a devilishly dark comedy that took the West End by storm, collecting rave reviews and earning Zeller comparisons to Oscar Wilde, Noël Coward and Molière. In this new production, acclaimed director Sarah Giles (Straight White Men) is joined by actors Stephen Curry (The Castle) and Bert LaBonté (Kiss of the Spider Woman) in exploring the truths that tear us apart and the lies that keep us together.

Nancy and Bill are calling it quits. After 50 years of ‘married bliss’, Nancy wants to take a last chance at living her best life. And Bill? Well, Bill’s okay with it. The couple’s adult children, Ben and Brian, are definitely not okay with it. Who said elderly parents have a right to branch out and try new things?

Billie Brown Theatre, 78 Montague Street
South Brisbane
QLD
Anchuli Felicia King’s new play is a ruthlessly entertaining portrait of toxic corporate culture, casual racism and the complexity of pan-Asian relations. As the team at Clearday scrambles to contain the fallout, the open-plan, glass-door office proves to be a nest of secrets, lies and resentments.

Joan Sutherland Theatre – Sydney Opera House, Bennelong Point
Sydney
NSW
This is a story of a love so strong it defies enemy lines.

This is a story of a kingdom in triumph and a nation in chains. This is a story of betrayal.

Verdi’s monumental music makes this historic epic an enduring favourite. Davide Livermore’s radiant production is a thrilling theatrical experience.

Playhouse, QPAC, Grey Street and Melbourne Street
South Brisbane
QLD
This is the opera that changed the direction of the art form. When it premiered in 1786 audiences were intrigued as they watched real people wrestling with feelings of desire, betrayal, remorse, unbridled lust…feelings they knew well themselves.
