When No Pay? No Way! opened in 2020 it was instantly met with standing ovations and glowing reviews. Now, one of Sydney Theatre Company’s funniest and most beloved productions in recent years returns to the Drama Theatre and to a world more in need of its wild, farcical wisdom than ever.

Directed by the award-winning Sarah Giles (The Importance of Being EarnestAccidental Death of an Anarchist) adapted from the original Italian by ABC comedy powerhouse Marieke Hardy, this 1970s joyride satirises the world of dollars and cents to uproarious effect.

Prices are out of control – and so is Antonia. Sick of having barely enough to pay the gas bill, she leads an uprising at a local supermarket that sees a group of angry housewives shoplift ‘til they drop. Now, with a pile of newly ‘liberated’ loot, Antonia – played by Mandy McElhinney (The Tempest) – and her best friend Margherita embark on a ludicrous, laugh-a-minute escapade to stay three steps ahead of the law.

The work of one of Italy’s most lauded playwrights, Dario Fo, No Pay? No Way! mixes political satire, hilarious plot twists and sharp-as-a-tack dialogue to create a thrilling experience that will have you in fits of laughter from beginning to end.

Also featuring first-rate comedy legends Glenn Hazeldine (Così), and Aaron Tsindos (The Tempest), this production is both exhilarating and exuberantly funny.
