NATIONAL THEATRE OF PARRAMATTA UNVEILS 2022 SEASON: Riversides National Theatre of Parramatta (NTofP) is proud to announce their 2022 season, jam-packed with stories that question power, politics, the meaning of life and how place impacts identity. NTofP Executive Producer, Joanne Kee said After two years of uncertainty, and finding Western Sydney at the epicentre of one of the harshest lockdowns, we decided to embrace the world and the many cultures and perspectives formed by both place and the personal. In 2022, we are celebrating the talents of Western Sydney creatives and putting them alongside globally recognised playwrights and creatives.

We are exploring multi-platform works that intersect politics, philosophy and technology in our very own mash-up that will both touch hearts and rattle cages. Kicking off with two Australian premiere works as part of Sydney Festival, the 2022 Season will comprise three world premiere works and one Australian premiere.
