In the Company of Actors

IN THE COMPANY OF ACTORS

From a rehearsal room in Sydney through to opening night in New York, a company of actors reveals the magic and struggle of creating theatre.

Synopsis

IN THE COMPANY OF ACTORS features an ensemble of Australia’s finest actors,
Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Anthony Weigh, Justine Clarke, Aden Young, Julie Hamilton and Annie Byron as they prepare to perform the Sydney Theatre Company’s production of Hedda Gabler, at the prestigious Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York.

In raw and intimate detail the documentary takes the audience behind the curtains
to observe the actors immersed in the creative process in Sydney and New York.
We discover that presenting a seemingly effortless performance is a complex, detailed, technical and exhaustive process, with the director Robyn Nevin, writer Andrew Upton, and their teams of artists and technicians working 18-hour days.

Opening night is just five weeks away and the pressure is on…
