A very warm welcome to our 75th Anniversary season!
We are delighted to be celebrating this milestone in our Kent street premises and we have a bumper season for you.
We start with the magical story of young love, A Room With a View. This new adaptation preserves all the delight of Forster's novel as we transport you from Florence, Italy to England and back again!
In the early 1970s a young actor/director called Nick Enright began work at the Genesian. During his subsequent career he would win AWGIE and Helpman Awards and be nominated for an Academy Award. This wonderful revue featuring Nick's wit and songs, Enright on the Night, has been specially crafted for our theatre by Mel Morrow and David Mitchell (Shout/Dusty) and will be a highlight of our 75th.
Sherlock Holmes and the Ripper Murders combines the story of the greatest Detective with one of the great mysteries of the Victorian era and it's an unmissable run-away adventure!
Jane Austen is always a favourite with our audiences and Persuasion is one of her most loved and most moving tales as heroine Anne Elliot rekindles a lost romance.
No season is complete without an Agatha Christie and Towards Zero is a cracker as murder disrupts a house party at Gull's Point, the seaside home of Lady Tressilian. Be quick to book for this!
Finally this season we revisit Sydney in the 1950's in the new smash hit musical from Tim Finn, Ladies in Black. Described by the Australian as "immensely engaging" this will be a fitting end to our very special year.
We do hope you will join us for some or all of our plays at Sydney's unique little theatre. We look forward to showing you to your seat!
Roger Gimblett (Theatre Director)
