  • Theatresports™ 2018

    PrahranTheatre | September 23 - November 25, 2018

    Let the games begin! Impro Melbourne’s Theatresports™ season is a high energy, no holds-barred sporting theatrical combo that everyone will enjoy.
    A coveted place in the Grand Final is up for grabs and the competition is fierce, forcing teams of improvisors to run all kinds of risks in the pursuit of impro glory.

    Stories take unexpected turns. Drama flips to comedy. A throwaway line makes you think. Over the course of the evening three judges score the matches but in the special Danish round it’s the audience who decide the winners.

    It’s a thrilling, hilarious, family friendly night out. Kids will love it and so will Nana. Your workmates and the uni friends you haven’t seen for ages will love it too. Booing and cheering in a theatre? It must be Theatresports.™

  • BROKEN by Mary Anne Butler (directed by Susie Dee)

    MelbourneTheatre | November 15 - 25, 2018

    Winner of the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Drama and the Victorian Prize for Literature, Mary Anne Butler’s poetic, evocative play receives it's long-awaited Melbourne premiere from 15-25 November 2018 at fortyfivedownstairs.

    A car crash in the Central Desert. A broken man, about to leave his wife. A damaged woman, struggling to stay intact. Broken entwines the stories of three complex lives as they unfold on a single fateful night in the heart of the Northern Territory’s desert country.

    Poetic, visceral and extremely moving, this haunting story of resilience and survival takes you into the heart of its characters and the Australian landscape, offering up a devastatingly fresh look at our national identity.

    Wrestling with matters of chance, choice, hope and fate, it poses the question: When you find yourself empty, how do you start again?
