Another season of amazing theatre productions
With 3 fruitful seasons supporting budding arts companies and independent artists in the bag, the Seymour Centre's Reginald season is back in 2014 with even more diverse and captivating theatre experiences.

The Reginald Season is an initiative of the Seymour Centre, the University of Sydney's Performing Arts Centre and an important theatre in its own right in the city.

The 2014 Reginald Season will commence in June, and will present the following plays:

Ruthless! Book and lyrics by Joel Paley, music by Marvin Laird and produced by The Theatre Division
Runs from 19th June to 5th July

Starring Katrina Retallick, Meredith O'Reilly, Margi de Ferranti and Geraldine Turner, Ruthless!, a sharp look at the entertainment business, is an all-female musical that turns housewives into movie stars and grandmothers into grand dames, and is inspired by classic Broadway shows like Gypsy and Mame. When performed in New York City, it won the New York Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical.

A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen, produced by Sport for Jove Theatre Company
Runs from 17th July to 2nd August

Directed by Adam Cook, this classic play, controversial when it was first performed in 1897, explores the themes of intrigue, fraud and betrayal as seen through the eyes of Torvald Helmer and his wife, Nora, one of theatre's most tragic female characters. A Doll's House is a world where duty, power and hypocrisy rule, and it will be brought to life once again.

Europe by Michael Gow, produced by Slip of the Tongue
Runs from 10th to 27th September

First performed in 1987, Europe highlights the clichés we know about Europe and Australia, as the play follows Aussie Douglas and Barbara, a European actress, who meet first in Australia and then later develop their relationship in Europe. Who they are to each other depends not just their own personas but also how this is shaped by where they come from.

Rosaline by Joanna Erskine, produced by Cry Havoc
Runs from 1st to 18th October

Everyone knows the story of Romeo and Juliet, but what happened to Rosaline, the girl Romeo was so besotted with before he met Juliet? Where did she go, and can she more than just a plot device for the famous star-crossed lovers? Rosaline is a reimagining of Shakespeare's classic tale – gutsy, raw and sure to leave you breathless.

The Legend of King O'Malley by Michael Boddy and Robert Ellis, produced by Don't Look Away
Runs from 26th November to 13th December

Described as a "wild romp of epic storytelling", The Legend of King O'Malley is sure to delight audiences. King is punished by the devil (stay with me here), when, heartbroken and near death, he boards a ship to Australia to find himself in the land of opportunity.
