Entrepreneur, theatre-maker, director and actor, Bryan Nason has played an enormous and pivotal role in creating Queensland’s theatre culture over the past 60 years. Captivated by the magic of theatre from a young age, Nason has dedicated his life to bringing joy to thousands throughout his long theatrical career.

Now in his 80s, Nason’s life’s work came to a close, as he packed up his rambling family home in Clayfield, full to the rafters with theatre memories and memorabilia.
