New Theatre in Sydney has revealed that they'll be presenting eight plays between February and December next year as part of their 2018 season.
It will be an eclectic mix aiming to showcase some of the best local and international writing, ranging from recent hits to contemporary classics.
The season includes two Australian premieres and one Sydney premiere. Pulitzer, Tony and Olivier award-winning shows also take centre stage at New Theatre.
To start the year, Joe DiPietro's 'F***ing Men' will run for the 40th Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras followed by a revival of 'Silent Disco' by the award-winning Australian writer Lachlan Philpott.
A slew of international plays follow, from the UK ('The Lieutenant of Inishmore' by Martin McDonagh and the Australian premiere of 'Nell Gwynn' by Jessica Swayle) and America ('August: Osage County' by Tracy Letts and the Sydney premiere of 'Stupid F***ing Bird', Aaron Posner's update of Chekhov's 'The Seagull').
The season is then rounded off with two classic comedies: 'What The Butler Saw' by Joe Orton and 'Broadway Bound' by Neil Simon.
"These are plays that will make you think, plays that will make you blush, plays that will make your belly ache from laughing, and plays that will give you a warm fuzzy glow." Artistic Director, Louise Fischer says.
