Production programmes are now just $2 and are available for purchase in the theatre foyers. You can also download a copy of the Hay Fever programme before you head to the theatre, and a range of other information about the show – ranging from interviews to videos – can be found throughout the season here at mtc.com.au/backstage.
At the three-quarter mark through 2017, it’s a delight to be presenting one of the highlights of this year’s program.
In fact, we have three outstanding productions on our stages before year’s end, the first being this fabulous revival of Noël Coward’s Hay Fever. Then follows the legendary John Bell in The Father by Florian Zeller and the world premiere of Eddie Perfect’s new play, Vivid White.
Directed by Helpmann Award-winning director Lee Lewis, Hay Fever will have you revelling in its deliciously seductive comedy and unapologetic melodrama. What’s not to love about Coward’s exquisite language performed by an equally exquisite cast? You are in for a treat.
And although we’re approaching the end of the year, we’ve given Melbourne plenty to look forward to with the recent announcement of Season 2018.
2018 is bursting with plays as relevant, irresistible and complex as any we’ve presented in recent times. From the Australian premiere of the National Theatre’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time to Geoffrey Rush’s return to MTC in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, it is a season you’ll want to be part of.
Season 2018 subscriptions are available now so I encourage you to get your bookings in and join us as we embark on a remarkable year ahead at Melbourne Theatre Company.
