Vale Mr T. E. Lewis

11 May 2018


It is with great sadness that Malthouse Theatre acknowledges the passing of Mr T. E. Lewis. 

Mr Lewis was an immense presence, both on and off the stage. As the co-creator of and performer in The Shadow King he harnessed power and poeticism to the resounding praise of audiences in Melbourne, across Australia and at The Barbican in London. His warmth, joviality, generous spirit and incredible contributions to Malthouse Theatre will be remembered by all members of our company and community. A towering figure, a powerhouse, who will be so, so missed. 

We will host a ceremony in honour of our Shadow King at 11am on Thursday 17 May at The Coopers Malthouse.
