WELCOME TO 2017: AN ANARCHIC SEASON OF THEATRE THAT REVOLTS AGAINST THE ESTABLISHMENT AND SEARCHES FOR RADICAL COMPASSION.
In 2017 we continue Malthouse Theatre’s 40-year legacy of mapping the dramatic changes of our world. From our mainstage, we create a space for interrogation, conversation and debate. We invent and reflect the world that surrounds us. This year we rebel against the establishment, focus on characters at epic crossroads, and share stories that search for empathy and compassion in unexpected places.
Join us in a year of enacting change through interrogation, human connection, anarchy, and compassion.
