The Miser - Sydney

John Bell stars in The Miser as the stingy, avaricious and obnoxious Harpagon, a money-lender who makes Ebenezer Scrooge look generous.

This is a man who loves nothing more than his beloved cash — not even his own children. With his eye on the prize — an inappropriately young bride who already has her sights set on his son — Harpagon is prepared to sacrifice his children and his dignity to win it all.

First performed in 1668, The Miser is the well-known satire by French playwright Molière, known for other classics such as Tartuffe and The Misanthrope. Bell Shakespeare’s Founder, John Bell, will be directed by Artistic Director, Peter Evans, in this deliciously mean comedic Molière adaptation, exploring the depth of human greed, lust and manipulation.

Much Ado About Nothing - Melbourne

Much Ado About Nothing is a saucy and razor-sharp battle of wits between the bickering Beatrice and Benedick who wield words as weapons, their banter betraying their love for each other.

Directed by Bell Shakespeare’s Associate Director, James Evans (Julius Caesar) and starring Zindzi Okenyo (Antony and Cleopatra, MTC’s An Ideal Husband) as Beatrice, this Much Ado About Nothing will be a powerful exploration of the struggle for identity and self-knowledge in a male-dominated world. The pursuit of love is framed in a social context that enhances the darker themes in this timeless comic gem.


Titus Andronicus - Sydney

A confronting and gory revenge tragedy, Titus Andronicus was the smash hit of Shakespeare’s early career. Political intrigue and corruption turn to rape, cannibalism, mutilation and murder as people become pawns in a torturous battle of wills. Shakespeare dives into the depths of humankind’s most vile traits and invites audiences to revel in the horrors that are found within. Grotesquely violent and boldly experimental, Shakespeare’s bloodiest play is an interrogation of power and paranoia.

Directed by Adena Jacobs and starring Jane Montgomery Griffiths as Titus Andronicus, this production will have you questioning where does the cycle of revenge truly begin and end?

Presenting at Sydney Opera House 27/8 - 27/9
