Belvoir Lifts the Curtain on its 2023 Season

Belvoir has unveiled its 2023 season, with ten plays set to grace the mainstage.

It’s a diverse collection of stories that includes the company’s first Stephen Sondheim musical (Into the Woods), a book adaptation (The Weekend), a drama exploring climate issues, a 2022 Belvoir favourite, and a piece described as ‘pure theatrical pleasure’, all centred on showcasing Australian artistic talents.

“Our headlong love of Australian stories continues,” Belvoir Artistic Director, Eamon Flack said. “We’ve gone looking for “classics” in new places, and this… are our offers.” 

Subscriptions for Belvoir’s 2023 season are on sale now.
