Events at MWT

Monday 10th Sept @ 6.30pm

IN-ONE-ACT Reading Performances

Come and enjoy an evening of scripts written by In-One-Act participants. In-One-Act is a creative partnership between Yarra Libraries and MWT, and culminates in two play readings – this is the first one, with the second to be held at Bargoonga Nganjin (North Fitzroy Library) on 13th September. These scripts have been brought to life under the guidance of MWT’s resident director Elizabeth Walley, who will also direct the play readings, to be performed by MWT actors. Everyone welcome!

Wayner Pearn, Artistic Director
