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. It might be a lecture, a discussion or a demonstration. 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. 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 four weeks or more before each forum.
Book online via the button at the top right of this page or call Box Office on 02 9699 3444.

UPCOMING SUNDAY FORUMS
Hedda Gabler 3pm, 3 August
This year, Oedipus Schmoedipus, Cain and Abel and Hedda Gabler generated a wave of radical theatre on the Belvoir stages, reclaiming the canon from its patriarchal roots. What makes theatre feminist? What makes it queer? How can theatre disturb the norm and upend our expectations?
Join Dee Jefferson (Arts Editor, Time Out Sydney) for a discussion with controversial female theatre-makers Adena Jacobs (Resident Director, Belvoir), Zoe Coombs Marr (post), Kate Davis & Emma Valente (THE RABBLE), for a conversation about theatre and gender.
Nora 3pm, 14 September
The Glass Menagerie 3pm, 2 November
A Christmas Carol 3pm, 21 December
