2017 Sport For Jove Theatre Season
This is the biggest, most international and inclusive season yet!
2017 marks the seventh successful year of Sport for Jove Theatre offering the Sydney independent sector an exciting, accessible, and powerful voice.
The 2017 season is the theatre’s biggest, most international and most inclusive yet. This year includes the premiere of a brilliant and passionate new Australian work, an untouched American classic, a modern British work of pure provocation, a return of the acclaimed production of a great French masterpiece, and two of Shakespeare’s Roman tragedies played outdoors over summer.
Sport for Jove’s big 2017 begins with a study of power and provocation from the perspective of women in leadership. William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and Antony & Cleopatra will have the traditionally male roles of Julius Caesar, Octavius Caesar, Cassius, Casca and many more played by a group of superb Australian female artists in a unique outdoor season.
In April, SFJ will be co-producing with the incredible Melbourne based She Said Theatre, on a new Australian work inspired by the history of Urania Cottage, a home for “fallen” women founded by Charles Dickens.
The winter season brings an exciting venture for the many thousands who heard or read about, but haven’t yet seen the acclaimed production of Cyrano de Bergerac, winner of the 2013 Sydney Theatre Award for Best Independent Production. One of the world’s most original and finely crafted romantic comedies; the tale of the beautiful Roxane and the man who would love her, but for his outrageous nose—the play that brought the word ‘panache’ into the English language! Cyrano is a complete theatrical masterpiece.
Lovers of history, art, politics and the study of culture will be enthralled by No End Of Blame, a neglected 20th Century masterpiece, now so profoundly topical, about censorship of the world’s most innocent satirical device—the political cartoon.
