The Tempest
By William Shakespeare
Directed By Damien Ryan

After a thrilling and captivating run in 2017, Sport For Jove’s exceptional 100 minute production of The Tempest returns to the stage. One of Shakespeare’s greatest plays, The Tempest is a symphonic vision of forgiveness, discovery and self-discovery – famous for its language, context, enchanting characters and breathtaking theatricality, a reflection of the world’s most famous playwright at the height of his powers and at the end of his remarkable career.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Damien Ryan

A brand new production from Damien Ryan; in the heat of the shortest night of the year, young lovers and work-a-day dreamers plunge into a world between sleep and waking, where “everything seems double”. One of Shakespeare’s truly essential works, ‘Dream’, like every fairy-story, warns us that family, love and friendship are fragile – when parents are selfish, their children break the rules; when love rears its head, friendships are forgotten; and that’s just the mortal world.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Damien Ryan

Sport for Jove’s thrilling 100-minute Macbeth is back after playing to thousands in 2015 and 2016. Shakespeare’s most immersive and haunting play tells of the murderous ascent to greatness of a husband and wife who believe they can control time and destiny. Sport for Jove’s critically acclaimed Macbeth is an ecstatic vision of what love and ambition can do to people, a must-see.

This delightful season features some of Sydney’s most talented actors; Amy Usherwood, Christopher Tomkinson, Claudia Ware, Drew Livingston, Elijah Williams, Francesca Savige, James Lugton, Kirsty Marillier, Megan Drury, Michael Cullen, Samantha Young, Scott Sheridan, Thom Blake
