Ensemble Theatre launches its 2022 season

Mark Kilmurry, Artistic Director, Ensemble Theatre is thrilled to announce the 2022 Season which, says Kilmurry, will be a season of 10 exceptional shows by the best Australian and international playwrights including 2 special events with theatre legends.

Mark Kilmurry:

We’re elated to open our theatre so people can experience the thrill of live theatre again in a Covid safe environment and enjoy 8 plays with 44 of Australia’s finest actors.

Ensemble Theatre has proudly commissioned new Australian works including Vanessa Bates’ fusion of cultures in THE ONE, Sam O’Sullivan’s festive comedy BOXING DAY BBQ and Joanna Murray-Smith’s powerful reimagining of Ibsen’s A DOLL’S HOUSE. Female voices continue to ring out in A LETTER FOR MOLLY, where emerging Gumbaynggirr playwright Brittanie Shipway reflects with warmth and humour on how experiences of past generations shaped the future, and Anna Zeigler shines a spotlight on Rosalind Franklin, an ambitious young scientist who dared to discover, in PHOTOGRAPH 51.

The brilliant comedy STILL UNQUALIFIED by Genevieve Hegney and Catherine Moore will be part of our 2022 season as well as Harold Pinter’s THE CARETAKER and A CHRISTMAS CAROL with John Bell playing Scrooge in this new adaptation.

This year they are hosting two special add-on events:

Tina Bursill and Andrew McFarlane capture the complicated romance between long-distance sweethearts in LOVE LETTERS and Helpmann Award-winning Ursula Yovich invites you on an intimate journey through the universal language of song.

2022 is a vibrant celebration of culture, identity and standing up for what you believe in. This eclectic season has comedy, plenty of drama, cabaret and two Christmas crackers added Mark Kilmurry.
