Collaborating. Growing artistically. Telling the stories.


Founded in Sydney in 2011, Troy Harrison, Zoe Trilsbach, Nick Bartlett and Katherine Beck began as a group of actors with the same goal in mind; to continue to sharpen our skills on a regular basis. Inspired by a masterclass with U.S acting coach Larry Moss we started a weekly workout with good writers and good scripts. One thing led to another and we took the initiative and started a theatre company with the dream of collaborating and growing artistically, telling the stories we wanted to explore beyond mainstream theatre. As a group of hard-working, dedicated individuals, the name ‘Workhorse’ seemed an appropriate reflection of our work ethic.
