welcome to our archive

23rd productions operated between 2007 and 2012 bringing ground breaking independent theatre to Brisbane. after sell-out seasons and multiple awards, they called it a day to work on other projects. This website is now an archive of those 5 years, maintained to inform and inspire. We hope you find it useful.

You will see many more names and faces than the 2 artistic directors. this is the 23rd family. Many worked over a variety of projects, some just on one. Regardless, the company's success was because of everyone who contributed to each production, large or small.

And our audiences.
To whom we are forever indebted.
