Red Phoenix Theatre is Holden Street Theatres’ resident company and is dedicated to producing only Adelaide premieres*.


We create fresh and inspiring theatrical experiences including:

Brand new plays
Unexplored classics by great writers
Fresh adaptations


If a play hasn’t previously been staged in Adelaide then it’s our honour and mission to bring it to you.

Along with a splash of dazzling contemporary plays, you can still expect to see great plays by great names such as Aristophanes, Euripides, Shakespeare, Ibsen, Strindberg, Havel, Albee, Mamet and a long list of others. Many of their wonderful works have never received a public performance in Adelaide.

This is the Red Phoenix Theatre mission.

Artistic Director, Michael Eustice says,
We have embarked on a theatrically themed voyage. During the next four years we will explore the old adage about the things we are told we should never discuss in polite company; politics, religion, money and sex. 2017 will be the first year of our vision’s journey and we will stage three plays all linked by the theme of Politics. This will be followed by Religion & Faith (2018), Money (2019) and 2020 will be a year filled with Sex. We refuse to bite our tongues 🙂
