Good theatre makes you feel. It can also make you think. Sometimes you’re left thinking about it well after you’ve left the theatre. You want to know more; about the play, its ideas, its history or how it came about.

If so then our Sunday Forums are for you.

We hold a forum for each of our Upstairs performances. Each is different and tackles a specific aspect of the production. One might take a look at the broader social context of a play. Another might focus on how a show was created. After the forum you have a chance to ask questions of the panellists, meet your fellow audience members and continue the discussion informally with us in the foyer.

Sunday Forums are free. While you don’t need to, it’s best to see the show before you come because we’re bound to spoil the ending! Check our website or call Box Office to find out who will appear on each panel and what the topic of discussion will be.

See you there!

Although tickets are free, bookings are essential and are open well before each forum.

Book online via the button at the top right of this page or call Box Office on 02 9699 3444.

Information regarding each Forum will be posted here as we confirm the topic of discussion and the panellists. So check back here regularly.

Radiance 3pm, 8 February

Telling our Stories
Join Artistic Director Ralph Myers in discussion with cast members from the 1993 Belvoir production of Radiance – Australian theatre legends Rhoda RobertsRachael Maza and Lydia Miller. How did Louis Nowra come to write a piece of crucial theatre for Indigenous women? Who is writing those stories now? As theatre ‘elders’ what is it that a new generation of Aboriginal artists need to be using the theatre for – not just for audiences but for their own community and careers? These amazing artists will offer a truly unique and extraordinary insight into the last few decades of Indigenous theatre. Please join us for a spirited and no doubt riotously fun discussion.
