About Us

Stories Like These is dedicated to creating imaginative, challenging and compelling theatre with a commitment to the development of Australian artists and voices.

We collaborate with both emerging and established professional artists to create works that engage, provoke and inspire our audiences, with an emphasis on new Australian works and the best international playwriting.

Since forming in 2008, we are building an impressive record of independent performance with work ranging from new Australian plays, contemporary international drama, an off-Broadway musical and solo performances, working with companies such as Griffin Theatre Company, ATYP, Rock Surfers, Seymour Centre, Kings Cross Theatre and Midsumma Festival.

Stories Like These received a nomination at the 2011 Sydney Theatre Awards for Best Production of a Musical (The Last Five Years).
