Deckchair Collapses

Tuesday 16th October / posted by Chris Wheeldon

The theatre community of Perth is still reeling from the closure of Fremantle company Deckchair Theatre last week.

After 30 years of delivering new Australian work to theatre-goers the board ruled declining box office numbers, sponsors and government support left them with no choice but to close their doors.

Last week we spoke to Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettit about this great loss to the Perth art scene and this week we were joined by Deckchair Vice Chair Barry Strickland about how the company met its end.
