'Red Stitch was established in 2002 by founder (and Artistic Director 2002-2004), Vincent Miller, with the aim of creating an actors' ensemble that would be independent, self-governing, and provide its members with the opportunity to produce work they truly believe in. Many outstanding contemporary plays were not being performed by mainstream theatre companies, and audiences were being deprived of the opportunity to see the work of some of the finest contemporary playwrights. Since its foundation and its incorporation as a not-for-profit company with DGR status in 2004, Red Stitch has produced over 50 contemporary plays, almost all Australian premieres, by acclaimed writers from the UK, the USA and Europe, including Neil LaBute, Martin Crimp, Edward Albee, Paula Vogel, Richard Bean, Sarah Kane and David Greig. Two productions have toured regional Victoria while The Shape of Things toured nationally in 2007. Established actors, directors and designers who work extensively with funded companies and in film and television have been attracted to work with Red Stitch for nominal amounts because of the quality of the ensemble and its productions.'
