Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta has unveiled their 2019 season including three Australian premieres and a newly commissioned work.

In its fourth year of bringing powerful and inspiring works to the stage, the NTofP program focuses on identity and celebrates diversity.

In 2019, NTofP presents the productions Grounded by George Brandt, Girl in the Machine by Stef Smith, Comedy of Errors adapted by Hilary Bell and White Pearl by Anchuli Felicia King, a co-production with Sydney Theatre Company.

‘Girl in the Machine’

GROUNDED – 14th to 23rd March 
Director: Dominic Mercer
Playwright: George Brant
With: Emily Havea
The story follows an ace fighter pilot whose career in the sky changes to “Chairforce” due to an unexpected pregnancy. An acclaimed work, Grounded has won multiple awards internationally.

GIRL IN THE MACHINE – 20th to 29th June (Australian premiere) 
Director: Claudia Barrie
Playwright: Stef Smith
With: Brandon McClelland and Chantelle Jamieson
A gripping story about love, humanity and the intrusiveness of technology. Set in a dystopian future, Girl in the Machine questions whether love is enough in this brave new world, and asks the ultimate question – Do you want to live forever? 

COMEDY OF ERRORS – 10th to 14th September 
Director: Stefo Nantsou
Playwright: William Shakespeare
Adapted by: Hilary Bell
With: Gabriel Fancourt, Bilal Hafda, Mansoor Noor, Julia Ohannessian and Kate Worsley
A glorious funny theatrical experience which explores two cities, two sets of twins, love and death, mistaken identity and identity theft.

WHITE PEARL – In association with Sydney Theatre Company. 24th October to 9th November (Australian premiere) 
Director: Priscilla Jackman
Playwright: Anchuli Felicia King
With: Merlynn Tong
This sassy and bitingly hilarious work provides an entertaining portrait of toxic corporate culture, casual racism and the complexity of pan-Asian relations.
