Sydney Theatre Company

Australia's leading theatre company

Recognised as one of the world’s most exciting and original theatre companies, Sydney Theatre Company is at the heart of Australia’s cultural landscape with a history of ground-breaking productions.

STC presents an annual season across its harbourside venues: Roslyn Packer Theatre in Walsh Bay and Sydney Opera House, as its resident theatre company.

The company works with artists at the top of their craft to produce a diverse program of internationally acclaimed theatre that reflects Sydney’s distinctive energy and personality, and entertains hundreds of thousands of Sydneysiders and visitors all year round.

The theatre careers of many of Australia's internationally renowned artists have been launched and fostered at STC, including Mel Gibson, Judy Davis, Hugo Weaving, Toni Collette, Rose Byrne, Benedict Andrews and Cate Blanchett.

Theatre that runs from the epic to the intimate and from the classic to the contemporary.

2020 season

Next year, discover a different kind of night out. Filled with wild twists, new takes, sharp turns and close encounters with the country’s most exciting storytellers, Sydney Theatre Company’s 2020 Season is an unmissable year of live theatre.

Helen Thomson leads an uprising in a supermarket in Marieke Hardy’s laugh-a-minute new adaptation of Dario Fo’s 1970s farce No Pay? No Way! Fresh from winning the 2019 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Home, I’m Darling is full of big laughs, big skirts and big questions. A twenty-first century rom-com, Triple X is a tender and wickedly funny look at social taboos and love out of bounds. Hugo Weaving and Wayne Blair shine in the poetic, haunting true-crime tale of revenge, Wonnangatta. Timed for the silly season, Rules for Living is the most deliciously dysfunctional family Christmas lunch you’ll ever attend.
