Whatever happened to the STC Actors Company? by James Waites( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 23 libraries worldwide
The Actors Company was the visionary initiative of Robyn Nevin, Director of the Sydney Theatre Company, who in 2004 persuaded NSW Premier, Bob Carr, to fund an experimental ensemble. It had been Nevin's dream but her major responsibilities soon drew her away and left the group to the mercy of itinerant directors. Personal crises, accident and frustration dissipated the original ensemble; they became hostage to crippling costs and the demands of the mainstage. Those involved count as their most rewarding Sarsaparilla (2007), and the eight-hour epic, The Lost Echo (2006). The Actors Company was formally disbanded in 2009 after The War of the Roses. It left the actors with mixed emotions, and the conviction that, with what they now know, they would do it all again
