The Q Theatre began in 1963, in the theatrette of the AMP Building at Circular Quay. Its philosophy of bringing theatre to the people, with adventurous productions and training, was inspired by English theatrical traditions. The Q found a permanent home in Penrith in 1975 and has introduced generations of Sydney and western suburbs audiences to challenging international and local theatre, while supporting and training playwrights, directors and actors.
