A Life in the Theatre

4 Nov – 4 Dec 2016

By David Mamet


Who in their right mind would choose to be an actor? Stage veteran Robert and young up-start John are struggling to share a dressing room and the spotlight as they perform roles from the sublime to the completely ridiculous. Between murderous critics, lifeless audiences and other actors’ egos to contend with, there’s just got to be an easier way to make a living.

A Life in the Theatre is David Mamet’s “love letter to the theatre”, a comedic masterpiece about people who spend their lives pretending to be other people.

Venue: Darlinghurst Theatre : Eternity Playhouse

Theatre Company: Darlinghurst Theatre Company.
