MTC 2018 season

'MTC is where stories come alive, and Season 2018 is bursting with plays as relevant, irresistible and complex as any we have presented in recent years.' – Brett Sheehy AO, Artistic Director & CEO

To open the season, MTC and Arts Centre Melbourne are proud to present the National Theatre’s Olivier and Tony Award-winning production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, directed by Marianne Elliott (War Horse). Later in the year, The House of Bernarda Alba sees celebrated playwright Patricia Cornelius take Spanish dramatist Federico García Lorca’s classic tragedy out of the villages of Spain and into the heat of rural Western Australia in a raw an exhilarating adaptation.

For winter, comedy legend Gina Riley (Kath & Kim) and William McInnes (The Time of our Lives) will light up the stage with an all-star cast in Oscar Wilde’s effervescent society drama, An Ideal Husband. And to close the season at Arts Centre Melbourne, Elaine Crombie (Black Comedy), Kamil Ellis (Macbeth), Tony Nikolakopoulos (Wentworth) and Calen Tassone (Red Dog: True Blue) star in the world premiere of Astroman, Albert Belz’s uplifting and humorous love letter to the 1980s.
