Some savvy theatre-goers prefer an expert discussion to get the most out of their experience. Our Major Partner, Monash University, will offer their scholarly expertise in a special afternoon conversation between the matinee and evening performance of selected Season 2017 productions.

In this last free panel for Monash Meets Malthouse, leading Monash University experts on religion, biblical history and female writing come together for an informal but informative panel discussion on themes raised by The Testament of Mary.

Dr Felix Nobis (moderator), Deputy Director of the Centre for Theatre and Performance at Monash University. His research areas include Early Medieval Theatre, Medieval Epic poetry and Irish literature. 

'If you want witnesses then I am one and I can tell you now, when you say that he redeemed the world, I will say that it was not worth it. It was not worth it.'
