Be part of the development of new Australian plays at Melbourne Theatre Company. MTC is thrilled to partner with MPavilion to present three readings of new works commissioned through the NEXT STAGE Writers Program. Each reading will be followed by an audience Q&A.
NEXT STAGE is MTC’s commissioning and development program and currently boasts 25 writers under commission or in residence. These include some of Australia’s most loved writers, as well as brilliant early career playwrights. Four NEXT STAGE plays feature in MTC’s 2020 season including Benjamin Law’s Torch the Place, which was read at MPavilion in 2018.
MTC at MPavilion Program
Thursday 19 December, 6.15–8pm: Play reading of Being Better by Chris Summers
Leo and Samira meet speed-dating and they struggle to overcome bad habits, baggage and the bell. It’s awkward, but everyone’s got issues—right? Luckily everyone is also looking for love, and doesn’t love cure all? Being Better is a romantic comedy for the 21st century—it’s fast, fractious and funny, but it also tells the truth.
Stay tuned for announcements on the next two MTC commissioned plays being read in this MPavilion series on Monday 20 January, 6.15–8pm, and Saturday 21 March, 3.15–5.15pm.
