Red Line Productions, the new artistic management team for the Old Fitz Theatre have announced the first six months programming in the 2015 season including six mainstage plays and four late shows, entitled Reincarnation.
The season kicks off with the return of the hit indie comedy Masterclass – written and performed by Gareth Davies and Charlie Garber, and a late night surprise, Bad. Two Sydney premieres will be presented as part of the 2015 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, the uproariously funny Cock and the new Australian gem Playing Rock Hudson.
Marshall Napier’s classic Freak Winds returns to the Old Fitzroy Theatre where it premiered ten years ago, paired with the late night impro-show Holly and Ado Get It On!, followed by the moving and ultimately heart-breaking Orphans and Edward Allen Baker’s emotionally charged one-act play Delores.
One of the most exciting producers in the indie scene, Mophead Productions, will present the Latin American hit The House of Ramon Iglesia. Rounding off Red Line Productions’ inaugural season in their new home is the seductive and terrifying Misterman directed by Kate Gaul and starring Thomas Campbell.
Andrew Henry is thrilled to be involved in the Reincarnation of his favourite stomping ground. “Sydney needs a well-run, intimate small theatre venue. The Fitz is so damn special,” says Henry.
“We are privileged to be embarking on a journey that hopefully will excite every single storyteller in Sydney. The Fitz is the best night out in Sydney hands down!”
The Old Fitzroy Theatre has been home to a diverse range of world class, independent theatre since 1997. A new energy in 2015 will reinvigorate the theatre and its programming. For more information and full season details, visit: www.oldfitztheatre.com
