Script Readings

In 2017 we called for submissions for THREE DEGREES IN MELBOURNE, MWT’s exciting new Tryptich Festival scheduled for 2017. Festival dates and details will be available on this website soon – in the meantime, you’re invited to come along to this evening of Script Readings and listen to TWO of the six selected 20-minute scripts, written by MWT members Bruce Shearer and Heather Forbes. 

This is a FREE event for MWT members, with an entry fee of $10 for guests. The readings will be followed by a feedback session with writers, actors and audience, and the evening will conclude with light refreshments.


RSVP by Friday 24th March
