Once in Royal David’s City
24 April – 11 May
Who are we, what are we doing here, and why is it so? Faced with the loss of a parent, do we rage against the universe, search for connection or hope for an epiphany? On the beaches of northern New South Wales, theatre director Will has planned to share a restful, halcyon Christmas with his recently-widowed mother. But then she falls ill. During a bedside vigil, Will is forced to piece together the splintered shards of his own life, questioning his role as an artist, as a son, as a citizen of the world. Artistic Director Sam Strong marks his Queensland Theatre directorial debut with this heartfelt work by playwright and former Artistic Director Michael Gow. At once intimate and sweeping, balancing warmth with wrath, Once In Royal David’s City is a life-affirming story about family, loss, purpose, politics, and the endless possibilities of art.

Noises Off
5 – 22 June
What’s more fun than a comically flawless story about tragically flawed people? Nothing. A clumsy brunette bombshell; an addled actress as the dotty housekeeper; an alcoholic septuagenarian in the role of a burglar. It was never going to be easy staging a bedroom farce with a mediocre cast, but pompous director Lloyd Dallas is having a crack. You’ll cry with laughter and cringe with delight as you witness this company fray and fall apart. Onstage, it’s a whirl of slamming doors, missed cues, dropped lines and dropped trousers; backstage, it’s an even more confused and chaotic maelstrom of love triangles and trampled egos, and there’s no one without an axe to grind (or swing). Playwright Michael Frayn’s classic meta-farce has been running all over the world since its 1982 premiere. Now, Queensland Theatre’s Artistic Director Sam Strong masterfully marshals an ensemble of the country’s top comics for a wickedly funny night.

Scenes from a Marriage
13 – 30 November
Love blooms. Love fades. It happens to everyone. It could be happening next door. And in any marriage torn asunder, sifting through the wreckage is going to get messy. Even a seemingly perfect marriage has cracks in its facade: cracks that if untended, can become gaping rifts. Johan and Marianne are the ideal couple: two daughters, glittering careers, a lovely home. But when Johan admits to sleeping with another woman, he detonates the first bomb in what will become a ferocious and savagely comic battle. Joanna Murray-Smith’s fiery adaptation of the Ingmar Bergman classic reunites her with Queensland Theatre’s new Associate Artistic Director Paige Rattray (Switzerland). Real-life power couple Marta Dusseldorp and Ben Winspear play the warring spouses.
