Playreading Mini-Fest

Hear snippets of work, see new ideas and meet the playwrights from UHT’s Writer-in-Residence program.
In 2021 Union House Theatre partnered with La Mama on our Writer-in-Residence program. This longstanding program is an opportunity for students to work closely with industry professionals as they develop a piece of theatre or performance.
Students have been working alongside professional playwrights Olivia Satchell and Merlynn Tong.
Our play-reading afternoon is a chance for student writers at varying stages to perform excerpts of their work in front of an audience for the very first time.

This has been postponed due to lockdown. Stay tuned for new dates.

When: Sat 7 Aug, 2pm-5pm (including an interval)
Where: La Mama Courthouse, 349 Drummond Street, Carlton
Bookings: lamama.com.au

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nations as the Traditional Owners of the land upon which we live, work, and learn. We pay our respects to the Elders past, present, and emerging. Sovereignty was never ceded. This always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
