From one of Australia's most masterful storytellers

Ensemble Theatre is proudly presenting the world premiere of Sorting Out Rachel, a brand new social comedy by one of Australia's most masterful storytellers, David Williamson.

Previews commence from 19 January 2018 and tickets are now on sale for this strictly limited season.

Directed by multi award-winning film director Nadia Tass, Sorting Out Rachel is a tale of legacy, entitlement and making good on past relationships.

When it comes to business, Bruce (John Howard) knows what to do. You've got to out-bite the sharks and twist a good deal before you get screwed. But as the years go by and his legacy starts to loom, his thoughts turn to his exasperated daughter Julie (Natalie Saleeba), her social climbing husband Craig (Glenn Hazeldine) and his granddaughter, Rachel (Jenna Owen), who unfortunately takes after him. Perhaps it's time to make amends. Can Bruce solve his family issues without giving away a long-held secret?
The talented cast includes John Howard as Bruce, Natalie Saleeba in her Ensemble Theatre debut as Bruce's daughter, Julie; Ensemble Theatre regular Glenn Hazeldine as Julie's husband Craig; Jenna Owen as Bruce's granddaughter Rachel, of the play's title and Chenoa Deemal, also in her Ensemble Theatre debut as Tess.

"Australia's most enduringly popular social comedy writer…keenly observant and satirical." SMH (for Operator)

"His genius has been to define for us, in advance of our own recognition, the qualities which make up the Australian character." The Australian
