The Ensemble
Theatre
production,
directed by
Sandra
Bates
, remains to
this day the top-
selling play in the
Sydney company's 48
year history.  
Warren
Mitchell
, the English
actor who played Mr.
Green, won last year's
Olivier Award in
London and is known
throughout England
and Australia as Alf
Garnett, the star of
Till Death Do Us Part,
the English tv series
that inspired All in the
Family.  His co-star in
the Sydney production
of Visiting Mr. Green
was his son
Daniel
Mitchell
.

“Apart from its
considerable wit and
understanding, the
strength of
Visiting Mr.
Green
is the rich tapestry
it weaves from the
characters’ lives. The
tormented histories, the
persecution, the solitary
isolation and the romance,
faith and happiness that
burden and uplift them.  
Visiting Mr. Green is
thoughtful and
absorbing.”   -
Sydney
Morning Herald
“The play is not merely about opposites finding a mutual point
of agreement. It's about honest, inner fears and prejudices,
hurts, imagined and real, and most of all, tolerance and
acceptance - an excellent play.”   -
The Catholic Weekly
A new production of Visiting Mr. Green began
in 2006 and continued in 2007.  Directed by
Helen Ellis, it starred Alan Hopgood as Mr.
Green and
David Tredinnick as Ross.
