Sydney Theatre Company (STC) Artistic Director Kip Williams announced on Friday (5 April) that, after 13 years with the Company and eight as Artistic Director, he will launch his eighth and final program in September before stepping down at the end of the year.

Following the success of The Picture of Dorian Gray in London’s West End (where the production received multiple five-star reviews), Williams has decided to hand over the reins to a new Artistic Director at the end of 2024 as he makes space in his schedule for a potential Broadway season in 2025.
