This 60-seat space is the grande dame of Sydney’s (admittedly tiny) pub theatre scene, having been around the longest (20 years, in 2017) and been a crucible for talent such as Brendan Cowell, Toby Schmitz and Kate Mulvany during its heydey under Tamarama Rock Surfers theatre company.
Redline Productions (actor/director Andrew Henry and producer Vanessa Wright) currently run the space, curating an annual season of works that range from new Australian plays to American and British classics.
In 2017, they’ve also got a new writing initiative called the New Fitz, in which ten emerging writers are commissioned to write a 40-minute play to run before the mainstage attraction – each play/writer responding to that work.
The Old Fitzroy Theatre is accessed through The Old Fitzroy Hotel.
