Now in it’s eighth successful year offering Sydney audiences an exciting, accessible and powerful voice, Sport for Jove Theatre announce their most exciting season to date. The season features the world premiere of two brilliant, passionate new Australian works and an iconic American classic, new partnerships with regional theatres, and our annual Summer Season, two classic productions performed outdoors over the summer.

The outdoor Summer season spans the full reach of comedy - from Shakespeare's dark satirical masterpiece Measure For Measure, to Goldoni's Italian dish of laughs The Servant of Two Masters.

Autumn sees the company teaming up with HotHouse Theatre to present The River at the End of the Road, a rare large-scale production developed for Albury-Wodonga audiences, bringing together six actors from the professional company of Sport for Jove, and HotHouse’s own Studio Ensemble.

Winter brings the epic Moby Dick by Orson Welles, exquisitely playful, funny, barbaric, soul-shunting and desperate. To see it on stage is a miracle of theatricality, the power of the spoken word, and the skill of the actor – an adventure where poetry is the captain and all of us the ocean.

Spring heralds a world premiere by Alana Valentine, Ear to the Edge of Time. The play is the winner of the fifth STAGE International Script Competition and was developed and supported, in part, through the University of California, Santa Barbara’s STAGE project and Professional Artists Lab (Nancy Kawalek, Director) and the California NanoSystems Institute. STAGE is a competition for the best play in the world about science or technology, and EAR TO THE EDGE OF TIME was the winner from 200 entries from 19 countries in 2012.

Sport for Jove Theatre established in 2009, a resident theatre company at the Seymour Centre, is an award winning NSW-based repertory theatre company producing a major touring summer festival of outdoor theatre in Australia, along with theatrical and education-based seasons of classical and new works. The company also provides an interactive Education program to NSW schools.
