The Suitcase Series

Our award winning education program.

The Suitcase Series empowers young people to tackle the greatest challenge of their generation: climate change. Year 9 and 10 students devise their own works in response to the commissioned script. This innovative program is a chance for students to develop and expand their theatre-making skills and to share a performance day with their peers, as well as viewing Malthouse Theatre’s full production of the play.

In 2017 we will see the return of the fourth play commissioned for this award-winning program: Turbine by Dan Giovannoni.

Risk Assessment Guidance for Schools

It’s Malthouse Theatre so there’s always the chance that someone will get naked or say something rude. The nature of devising theatre is that things can change right up until opening night. If we feel that the content of a work may inhibit yours or your students’ enjoyment of the experience we will get in touch.

We’ve provided some Risk Assessment Guidance to assist teachers prepare for excursions to The Coopers Malthouse:
