“Bloody Incredible... I literally sat there with my jaw dropped... never have I seen poetic drama so vividly realised by a performance...chilling subconscious menagerie struggling beneath our waking state.”


 - Miles Merrill

Siren Theatre Co

Siren Theatre Co makes theatre that inspires artists and audiences with bold imaginative experiences.  

Each play is a celebration of our humanity in all it's horror, hilarity and complexity.  Poetic texts, unexpected theatricality, despair, glamour, hope and love. 

Siren Theatre Co has been making work since 1997. To look through the production archive click here.

Following the huge success of our 2015 season of  MISTERMAN by Enda Walsh, performed by Thomas Campbell we are thrilled to announce the production will play at BACKSPACE, Theatre Royal in Hobart 1 - 4 June, 2016.  Click here for more details on this one.  See you in Tassie!
