Anyone who says legit theatre is dead just doesn’t get out enough. Or doesn’t get to Red Stitch enough.

Kindred members are an important part of the Red Stitch community and have a close relationship with the work we are doing. We hold exclusive events for Kindred members to share ideas about theatre around Australia and give insights into what is happening on our stage.

The Red Stitch Kindred are passionate, enquiring theatre-goers who understand the importance of theatre to our community and want to provide support to the Ensemble’s pursuit of uncompromised artistic excellence.

Kindred give an annual tax-deductible donation of $1,000 or more to support our artists and the work we do. In this way, Kindred safeguard our ability to produce poignant, ground-breaking theatre now, and for years to come.

We hope you will join us.



Thank you to our current Kindred for supporting us to foster and forge the next generation of cutting-edge contemporary performance.
