New Fortune Theatre

Based on the layout of the original Fortune Playhouse (London, c. 1600), the New Fortune Theatre is a fascinating venue for reproducing Shakespearean-era plays.

Located within the Faculty of Arts, Business, Law and Education, the theatre makes a unique setting for dance, drama and music. The Theatre is most suited to daylight performances at weekends.

The theatre can seat up to 340 patrons on three levels around the stage.

The Centre for the History of Emotions locates significant research around the New Fortune Theatre. Read about it and purchase the book "The New Fortune Theatre: That Vast Open Stage" from UWA Publishing.
