It is no exaggeration to say that Paul Capsis is extraordinary. His chameleonic ways and blockbuster voice have wowed audiences time and time again. Here we've gathered a little sample of his past work with STC. For the real deal, book to see Terence Rattigan's midcentury drama, The Deep Blue Sea.
Paul first joined us in 1995, for the compendium of pieces known as Sydney Stories II. Here we see him playing Edina in Kai Tai Chan's Two Wongs. (Photo: Branco Gaica)
The next year, he played Timur in Nick Enright's The Way I Was. (Photo: Tracey Schramm)
In 2002, Marion Potts directed him in Ben Webster's Volpone. Opposite Barry Otto as the title character, Paul played the eunuch Castrone. The set and lighting designers behind Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, Gabriela Tylesova and Nick Schlieper, were also onboard for this one. (Photo: Tracey Schramm)
