We can’t tell you how good it is to say this:
Welcome to our 2022 season.
We’ve put together a whole year of theatre, which might seem optimistic but that’s the point. Belvoir was founded against the odds, and going against the odds is in our bones. We’re ready for anything, and we continue, as always, to hope for the best.
Plus, we think theatre-going is essential. It’s as innate as gossip and cooking with fire. Streaming TV is great but there’s nothing like taking your seat as the lights go down, and the feeling that anything could happen. The one-off-ness is magic.
It’s even more special in a pandemic. It’s an antidote to the disruption and isolation.
When you’re a season ticket holder it’s not just one night you’re part of, it’s the whole shebang, now and for years to come. Not every show will be your favourite. Like life, you win some, you lose some. But when you’ve got season tickets you’re betting on the team. You’re part of Belvoir.
Support counts. We know that because it’s what helped us through two shutdowns. On behalf of all the artists and the staff and the other theatre-goers, thank you: we wouldn’t have made it without you.
We’re especially pleased, then, that the season we’ve put together is as bold as any season at the best of times. No hedging our bets, no treading lightly, we’ve put everything on the artists and the stories. At What Cost? puts Palawa history front and centre, no compromises. The Rep Season and The Jungle and the Sea are as ambitious as anything we’ve done. Black Brass breaks new ground. Opening Night puts a 70’s classic in the hands of a new generation. Sexual Misconduct of the Middle Classes thinks deeply and changes minds. Tell Me I’m Here celebrates how good and necessary it is to talk about difficult things. And Looking for Alibrandi is just delicious.
Who knows what lies ahead for Sydney next year, but we are ready for whatever comes. And as season ticket holders you get all the extra benefits of flexibility, first dibs, and discounts. And the confidence to subscribe now, knowing we will refund or credit your tickets if health regulations mean the show can’t go on.
We’re so pleased to be back again.
