THE MELBOURNE MONOLOGUES

La Mama Courthouse

There is nothing quite as satisfying as a beautifully written monologue. Here are six, directed by MWT’s resident director Elizabeth Walley and performed by actors who know how to capture and celebrate a moment. Hailed by one critic in 2017 as ‘fresh and vital’ and by another as ‘a wonderful evening’, The Melbourne Monologues will follow on directly from Six Degrees in Melbourne, opening at the Courthouse on Tuesday 27th November and playing until Sunday 2nd December. Six shows only. TICKETS: www.trybooking.com/YSCE

Special PREVIEW performance 

SIX DEGREES IN MELBOURNE

La Mama Courthouse
349 Drummond St, Carlton

Join us at this special Preview performance of the 2018 season of Six Degrees in Melbourne – all tickets $20. An innovative production of 6 original, thematically linked short plays written by MWT members and directed by Mazz Ryan and Adele Shelly, Six Degrees in Melbourne is now in rehearsal. Last year’s show was described by one critic as ‘nuggets of gold in a bleak modern city … a great collage of the range of stories to be told in Melbourne by Melbournians’ – with this year’s stories pivoting around the dual themes of Flinders Lane and lost & found, our 2018 offering promises to be another evening of richly satisfying theatre. Six Degrees in Melbourne will run from 13th – 25th November. Info and TICKETS: www.trybooking.com/XEWH
