Sydney Theatre Company unveils its 2013 season

Sydney Theatre Company has unveiled its program for next year - the final season for the company's star co-artistic director, Cate Blanchett. (Her husband and co-director Andrew Upton will stay on in the position until 2017.)

The lineup of shows is the STC's usual finely-balanced mix of beloved, crowd-pleasing classics and more challenging material. One theme seems to be perfect pairings - whether it's Blanchett and acclaimed French actress Isabelle Huppert in Jean Genet's The Maids, intellectual larrikins Tim Minchin and Toby Schmitz in the underappreciated Tom Stoppard classic Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, or Rake star Richard Roxburgh sparring idly with Hugo Weaving while Waiting for Godot.

Other features on the menu for 2013 include productions from former Chunky Move choreographer turned director Gideon Obarzanek, rising star Kip Williams' take on Romeo and Juliet, Sophie Treadwell's groundbreaking Expressionist play Machinal, and new writing from Joanna Murray Smith and John Doyle (AKA Roy Slaven of Roy & HG).

Season tickets are available now from the Sydney Theatre Company's website.
