Belvoir Theatre 25A 2019
A series of low-budget (but story-rich) plays supporting emerging theatre talent.
in partnership with
In 2018, Surry Hills' acclaimed Belvoir Theatre launched 25A — a new program dedicated to supporting independent theatre and emerging artists. The seven-part season saw shows created and marketed by independent theatremakers on a strict budget of $1500. In return, Belvoir offered up the theatre for free and creators received 100 percent of the box office earnings.
After a successful inaugural season, Belvoir has just announced the 2019 program, which will once again take over the Downstairs Theatre. The season will begin on Wednesday, February 6 with a production of the satirical play Tuesday by Louris van de Geer. This show first premiered in Melbourne back in 2012 and explores the concepts of social alienation and suburban life.
Subject matters vary wildly throughout the lineup, from the pyschological thriller Extinction of the Learned Response to Te Molimau, a futuristic story of a young woman on a sinking island in the Pacific Ocean.
Tickets are priced at an extremely reasonable $25 (online or at the door), with previews costing only $20. Check out the full program below, then head to the website to nab tickets.
