Belvoir is one of Australia's most celebrated theatre companies. The Company performs at its home at Belvoir St Theatre in Surry Hills, Sydney, and from there tours to major arts centres and festivals both nationally and internationally. Belvoir engages Australia's most prominent and promising playwrights, directors, actors and designers to present an annual artistic program that is razor-sharp, popular and challenging.
Belvoir St Theatre's greatly loved Upstairs and Downstairs stages have been the artistic watering holes of many of Australia's great performing artists such as Geoffrey Rush, Cate Blanchett, Susie Porter, Richard Roxburgh, Max Cullen, Bille Brown, David Wenham, Deborah Mailman and Catherine McClements.
Landmark productions like Cloudstreet, The Diary of a Madman, The Alchemist, Hamlet, Waiting for Godot, Gulpilil, The Sapphires, Stuff Happens, Keating!, Parramatta Girls, Exit the King, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Toy Symphony, The Book of Everything, Page 8 and Gwen in Purgatory have consolidated Belvoir's position as one of Australia's most innovative and acclaimed theatre companies.
