Adelaide Festival regrets to announce the season of Set Piece has been cancelled due to the impacts of the recent COVID-19 outbreaks in New South Wales, and the subsequent hard border closures.

As Set Piece is a show that involves a multi-state creative team and cast, the border closures have made it impossible for everyone to come together as planned for the crucially important creative development and subsequent rehearsal of this brand new work. With very limited time and no predictable end to border restrictions, the company has had no choice but to make the heart-breaking decision to withdraw from the production’s world premiere season at the 2021 Adelaide Festival. We will be exploring opportunities to present Set Piece at a future Adelaide Festival.


Tickets purchased via credit card will be automatically refunded to the card used to make the original purchase - please allow 5 business days. Patrons with tickets purchased via cash/EFTPOS will be contacted by BASS.


We are in challenging times and like so many others in our community, the effect of the pandemic on artists and arts organisations is ongoing and profound.

Adelaide Festival, its presentation partner Vitalstatistix and the entire Set Piece creative team are very grateful for your understanding in this matter.
