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 32% of our operating budget from tickets sales and only receive 10% in government funding. Because we believe so passionately in our work, our artists sacrifice up to 70% of their wages, which is equivalent to a massive 46% of our operational budget.

Charitable donations of any size play a vital role in ensuring Red Stitch will remain a vibrant beacon of theatre in Australia for years to come.
