It’s not just about seeing the shows – there’s a conversation to be had as well.

Sometimes the most fascinating part of a theatre-going experience is delving into not just what it’s about, but how it’s being done. At Belvoir’s Sunday Forums we bring artists and audiences together to peel back the surface and see what’s really going on in our plays. We’ll chew over the social, the political and the familial. We’ll discuss the play, the production – and the glorious space between the two. Serious one month, feisty the next – but always intriguing and you’re always invited.

We hold a forum for each of our Upstairs performances. The panellists are made up of both theatre artists and invited guests; you can check our website in advance for a run-down of who will be on and the topic of conversation. You’ll have the chance to ask questions, meet your fellow audience members and continue the discussion informally with us in the bar afterwards.

Sunday Forums are FREE but we’d like you to book so we can save you a spot. Book online on the link below or call the Box Office. Tweet while you listen (or follow online) using #sundayforum



The Great Fire 3pm, 8 May

The big Australian play – From Blind Giant to Great Fire

Following two seasons of big Australian plays, this Forum explores the task of creating work with large casts and the Australian stories that require theatre-making of scale. Join Tom Wright in conversation with Kit Brookman, playwright of The Great Fire, Eamon Flack, Director of both The Great Fire and The Blind Giant is Dancing and actor Geoff Morrell who has appeared on Belvoir’s stage in both productions back to back.

Hear from the artists on how Stephen Sewell’s political play of the 1980s speaks to today’s writer of a modern family drama, and why the two shows resonate together in Belvoir’s 2016 season. The panel will also ask what the big stories are that we need to put on our stages, and how do we go about making them work with big groups of actors? In an age of ever-decreasing resources is there still room for new works with grand visions? BOOK NOW.
