Don't miss Kate Mulvany's sensitively adapted new production for stage of Ruth Park's classic Irish family saga set in Surry Hills in Sydney in the last century. Wonderful music and acting by an all-star cast. Finola O'Sullivan, Dublin & Cambridge

Enjoying the variety now than when I used to subscribe; a greater diversity of shows are very appealing - have been to both the Drama Theatre and the Roslyn Packer ; atmosphere is different but both enjoyable.

We attended the production of Saint Joan last night at the Roslyn Packer theatre. It was wonderful. Gripping and well acted. It is about 1hour and 40 minutes with no interval. The theatre was packed as usual. Such a professional theatre group. We are lucky...More

From getting the tickets to pre show reviews and information the STC cannot be faulted ....the shows themselves provide a variety to ensure they are thought-provoking ...the cafe is quite expensive however but with spectacular views at the Wharf precinct .....seats pretty comfortable

This play is wonderful. It is written by an Australian writer and performed by Australian actors. The acting is wonderful, the timing is brilliant, it is funny and entertaining and thought provoking and altogether NOT TO BE MISSED.

Good question which I'm afraid I can't answer. However, you would likely get a better view from the "Theatre Bar At The End Of The Wharf". This is also a bar and restaurant, with a better view!
