2018 Season

2018 heralds an unprecedented period of transformation for ATYP. During the year we are spreading our wings and departing the iconic Walsh Bay Cultural Precinct while our new home is being built on Pier 2/3. It’s an exciting journey that sees the company moving further afield, both in the spaces we use in Sydney and the programs we run around the country.

ATYP’s performance season again involves a collection of new work from the nation’s leading emerging and established playwrights. We are excited to be joining forces with Australia’s celebrated home of new work, Griffin Theatre Company, to present Intersection 2018: Chrysalis, Impending Everyone and Charlie Pilgrim (or a Beginner’s Guide to Time Travel). 

Further afield, The Climbing Tree opens in Bathurst, premiering at the Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre before transferring to the Riverside Theatres in Parramatta. This production will be the culmination of three years of residencies lead by Rachael Coopes and Guy Webster, working with BMEC’s Artistic Director, Stephen Champion. 

At the same time A Town Named War Boy, our critically acclaimed co-production with the State Library of New South Wales, sets sail on a national tour visiting fantastic venues in Western Australia, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory and New South Wales.

And the show with the longest name in the world, Patrice Balbina’s Chance Encounter with the End of the World, brings our international partners back to Australia to ignite imaginations at exclusive performances on the Gold Coast in Queensland and back home to Sydney for a season at Parramatta Riverside Theatres.

We can't wait to see you for an ATYP performance around the country in 2018.
