Red Stitch Actors Theatre

Red Stitch Actors Theatre


Established in 2002, we are unique in our structure: an artist-driven company led by our resident actors with the support of a small, dedicated staff and board. We play a vital role in the development and presentation of new Australian works through our unique INK playwriting program, and offer opportunities for theatre-makers at all stages of their careers to hone and develop their craft.

Performing contemporary Australian plays and award-winning new writing from around the world, we have a national reputation for the quality of our work, and remain at the forefront of contemporary Australian theatre practise.

As an independent company, we generate almost 50% of our operating budget from tickets sales and only receive 10% in government funding. Please consider donating to our appeal, a little goes a long way at Red Stitch.
We have big dreams and with your help we can realise them.

"Red Stitch has always been a theatre company that punches above its weight."

"Red Stitch is one of Melbourne's best-known and respected theatre companies."
