Deckchair Theatre creates outstanding contemporary Australian Theatre. Join us.
Deckchair Theatre is a nationally recognised developer of contemporary Australian theatre, based in the heart of Fremantle, Western Australia.
Through supporting new Australian talent, we foster a love of theatre and the arts for diverse audience both at home and nationally.
We’ve premiered over ninety new Australian plays, and continuously pioneer and champion the work of outstanding theatre artists.
We develop and present award-winning theatrical works that celebrate iconic Australian stories, highlight our cultural diversity and proudly display our social consciousness. Through the telling of these stories we have a long and proud history of developing the careers and skills of leading Australian practitioners, whilst creating pathways for new and emerging talents.
In 2012, Deckchair Theatre closed its doors for the last time for financial reasons.
