Artistic director Wesley Enoch presents his second festival in 2018, building on some of the political and social themes we've come to expect from his first festival. In addition to major international events – ER star Maura Tierney will be playing Germaine Greer in The Town Hall Affair – there's a continuing focus on local artists breaking down barriers, and Indigenous theatre.
Best of the rest
January is our favourite month of the year thanks to Sydney Festival. The three-week celebration of summer in the city includes more than 100 events across theatre, dance, circus, music and arts. This year is festival director Wesley Enoch’s second program and he’s brought a renewed focus on new Australian work, a deepening of our connections to country and languages, and lots of accessible public art.
