Subscribe and say yes to big little theatre


A huge thanks to everyone who joined our 2017 season launch celebrations on Monday night. We had an incredible evening at the Prahran Hotel and were thrilled to announce our Season 2017! After months of reading and much debating, we bring you 4 of the hottest new scripts from overseas, one “mystery play” (to keep you guessing) and 3 remarkable plays from local writers (including two developed through our INK writing program).

We chose these plays because they explore the BIG things: how we speak to those we love, the prejudices we hold, the lies we buy into – and the lives we make for ourselves. And that’s what moves us to make theatre, that’s what we’re about. So let’s keep making and saying yes to big, little theatre. Theatre is a collective experience and we couldn’t do it without you, so thank you for being part of our community and the work we make.

We can’t wait to share our 2017 season with you, make sure you subscribe now to secure the best seats (at the most affordable prices).

See you at the theatre…
