Two great plays about power and change.

Wayside Bride by Alana Valentine
Light Shining in Buckinghamshire by Caryl Churchill

For the first time in Belvoir’s history we’re offering a repertory season – that’s to say, the same cast, on the same set, in alternating performances of two different plays, by two legendary women writers.

They’re each very different works – a new Australian play by one of our finest writers about a very Sydney institution. And a classic by perhaps our language’s greatest living dramatist, a play bursting with energy and provocation. Together “in rep” they present a big picture and a local picture of the age-old struggle for a fairer society.

The Rep season is supported by the COVID-19 Arts Sustainability Fund – an Australian Government initiative.

Here’s something a bit different, and I hope enticing. Belvoir’s always been a place to celebrate the skill of Australian actors, to come and see their idiosyncracies, their sheer range. These two plays are both beautiful, intelligent pieces – and the conversation between twentieth century Kings Cross and seventeenth century Civil War England promises to fascinate. And perhaps give us a better grasp on the twenty first century.

Sydney in the seventies. Misfits, Visionaries. And how Love finds a way.


Faith. Resistance. Revolution. And what comes after.
