Australian Theatre Company.
Established in Sydney in 2020.
In May, we will be participating in Sydney’s Short + Sweet Festival with works presented by young, Asian, early-career directors! More on the team soon!
In September, we will be part of KXT’s Storylines, presenting Three Fat Virgins Unassembled by Ovidia Yu. We’re excited to bring a slice of Singapore to Kings Cross!
Our first production was Ching Chong Chinaman back in January 2021 (after postponement) presented pandemic-style!
If you missed the show, feel free to have a read of our program with notes and biographies of the cast and crew.

- Asian casts & crews

- Improving representation
- Creating conversations

Become part of history
For those who are new to independent theatre, it’s a really difficult business! There’s venue hire, licensing, printing, then paying for all the set, costume, and lighting. In theatre, we often run shows on a ‘profit share’ model which means after all the expenses of the show have been paid off, we divide up the profits amongst the cast and crew. Many shows, even some that have won prestigious awards, don’t make a profit, or once divided, it’s minimal.
If you would like to donate to our shows, please use the button below which will take you to a PayPal link. In the message section, please write, “Slanted Theatre” and if you have a specific show you would like to support, “Slanted Theatre: Ching Chong Chinaman” and we will add this amount to our profit share.
We also invite you to join our mailing list to keep up to date with our latest news, upcoming shows, auditions and more! At Slanted Theatre, we’re hoping to build a community through our work and be more than just another indie theatre company.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us on this form. We are volunteer-run, so we will do our best to get back to you as quickly as possible!
