Back at full capacity and back at The Wharf. After a rough old year, Sydney Theatre Company is returning to revamped digs at its old home in Walsh Bay with Act 2 — the second half of its 2021 season.

With all of Sydney tipsy on our newly regained freedom, STC has cast the net wide, selecting 11 works guaranteed to beguile avid theatregoers and new converts alike. Featuring reworked classics such as The 7 Stages of Grieving, Death of a Salesman and the return season of Kip Williams' reimagining of The Picture of Dorian Gray, a one-woman audio-visual wit-banquet starring Eryn Jean Norvill, Act 2 suffers no shortage of heavy hitters.

But there's also plenty for those prepared to look a little further afield. Sigrid Thornton will make her STC debut (finally) in a prickly tussle with fake news in The Lifespan of a Fact, while Squabbalogic have transformed Gough Whitlam's trials and tribulations into the self-described 'extremely serious musical comedy' The Dismissal.

Sure, you might have spent a good chunk of the last year cooped up at home with only actors for company. But these ones aren't behind a glass screen. And they're busting to welcome you back — face-to-face — to the newly-renovated Wharf Theatres, Roslyn Packer Theatre and the Sydney Opera House.
