MTC at MPavilion 2019

Join us for a sneak peek into an exciting brand new Australian work and hear from the extraordinary team behind it. Melbourne Theatre Company will share the backstory of a NEXT STAGE original play with an audience, for the very first time, ahead of its main stage premiere during the 2022 MTC season. The creative team will reveal insights into the development of the new work and what makes Melbourne — at this time especially — such a vibrant place to tell stories. Actors will perform never before seen excerpts of the upcoming production, followed by an audience Q&A to expand the conversation.

The NEXT STAGE program boasts almost 30 writers under commission and eleven resident writers. These include some of Australia’s most-loved, as well as some of its freshest playwrights.

NEXT STAGE is made possible with the support of the Donors, Foundations and Organisations of MTC’s Playwrights Giving Circle.
