MWT’s annual season of new work by members will run from November 12 – December 2 at La Mama Courthouse. Submissions for our two productions, Six Degrees in Melbourne and The Melbourne Monologues, closed on 30th April, and the selection process is currently underway. Selections will be announced on this website on 15th June 2018.

We sincerely thank all members who created and submitted pieces for consideration in Season 2018.

Submissions for Season 2019 will open on 1st February 2019 and close on 30th April 2019. Our seasons showcase work by our members, thus entry is restricted to members of MWT. Non-members are welcome to join MWT at the time of submitting. For your interest and future reference, here are the 2018 Submission Guidelines:

2018 SHORT PLAY – Six Degrees in Melbourne

2018 MONOLOGUES – The Melbourne Monologues

Below you can read about the criteria for each of our 2018 shows. Our Season 2019 will run to the same format, with Six Degrees in Melbourne followed by The Melbourne Monologues, but there will be new criteria for Six Degrees – we change it every year, to provide a new challenge for our members and to ensure the production of new Australian work.
