Artistic Director Kip Williams
Kip Williams has been a core part of Sydney Theatre Company’s artistic team over the last few years, as a Resident Director since 2013 and as Artistic Director since 2016. His first engagement with STC was in 2011 when Andrew Upton invited him to be Assistant Director on his production of The White Guard. Later, he fulfilled the same role for Richard Cottrell on Loot, for Benedict Andrews on Gross und Klein (Big and Small), and for Neil Armfield on The Secret River. In 2012, he became Directing Associate, and directed Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas, the first of Williams’ many critically-acclaimed shows for STC. Other productions for STC include A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth, All My Sons, Tennessee Williams’ Suddenly Last Summer and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Ruth Park’s epic Australian stories The Harp in the South: Parts One and Two, and Playing Beatie Bow and his masterful reimagining of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray.
