Events at MWT


Selection update

Thank you to all writers who submitted scripts for THREE DEGREES IN MELBOURNE, MWT’s exciting new Tryptich Festival scheduled for 2017. Writing creatively to a brief always requires great focus, and given the challenging criteria for THREE DEGREES, we were gratified by the quality of scripts received. The selected writers have now been contacted, and more details of the Festival, including venue, dates and performers, will be published in 2017. Stay posted!

Where to send your Script

Well, these days you don’t just Send it. You hone it and redraft it until it’s as perfect as you can make it – for now – and then you do your RESEARCH. Where does a play like yours belong, really? What does the submission process involve? There may be theatres and performance space you haven’t considered – are you thinking outside the box?

At this first MWT workshop for 2017, we’ll look at the steps you need to take to give your script a life on stage. Depending on what you’ve written, the journey may be a long one – but by the end of the evening you’ll be full of ideas for places that your script might one day call Home. They’re more plentiful than you may realise. Come and be inspired. Feel free to bring along a completed script or work-in-progress for discussion.

At this event, we will also be looking at MWT’s plans for the year ahead.

Entry FREE for MWT members
Non-members $10
Refreshments available for purchase.
