Events at MWT


Script selection underway

The deadline for submissions to THREE DEGREES IN MELBOURNE, MWT’s exciting new initiative for 2017, was Friday 28th October. We would like to thank all writers who created 20-minute scripts for this project – writing to a specific brief is always challenging, requiring as it does a special combination of focus and attention to detail, and your efforts are to be applauded. Submissions are currently being carefully read, and we look forward to announcing our final selection early in 2017.


Monthly Workshops

See MWT in action.

These are a great way to improve your writing and meet other playwrights. Come along to a rehearsed Script Reading, or participate in Eat My Words!, a Monologue Soiree or PAGE TO STAGE 2015, our annual Festival of new writing. All events take place on Monday nights at La Mama Courthouse, 349 Drummond St, Carlton.  They are created especially for MWT members, but non-members are also welcome to attend,

Our 2016 workshops are now behind us, with our final event, A NIGHT OF NOSTALGIA, to be held on Monday 5th December.
We look forward to seeing you there. Details in the panel at right.


We are currently preparing our 2017 calendar. Dates will be posted on this website shortly, and we will keep you informed of our forthcoming workshops via our monthly e-newsletter Playbill.

Monday 5th Dec @ 7pm
An evening of Nostalgia

You will know that since 1982, MWT has been a key Melbourne arts institution. But did you also know that it was founded by writers of the calibre of Alex Miller, Dinny A’Hearn and Jack Hibberd? In this final event of the year, we take a walk down memory lane. Come and enjoy some nostalgia, archives and Christmas cheer. Past, present and future members all welcome!

Do YOU have any MWT history to share?

If you are a long-term MWT member, or joined MWT back in the early days, you may have an old MWT program, script or photos sitting in the bottom drawer. We’d be interested in seeing these at our Evening of Nostalgia, so dust off your memorabilia and bring it along!

This evening will conclude with a light Christmas supper.
Refreshments available for purchase.
Friends and family welcome.
