News | Season 2018 Casting Update

Meet the Wild cast of three and the extraordinary women bringing The House of Bernarda Alba to life, plus many more new and familiar faces joining us for Season 2018. We can’t wait to see them on stage this year!

Next month Mike Bartlett’s riveting contemporary thriller, Wild, will turn the world upside down with it’s Australian premiere at Southbank Theatre. The cast of three has now been rounded out with Nicholas Denton (Jasper Jones) and Toby Schmitz (Black Sails) joining Anna Lise Phillips (Animal Kingdom), under the direction of MTC Associate Director Dean Bryant (Vivid White).

Nicholas Denton will also return later in the year to star in Albert Belz’s irresistibly funny and heart-warming new tale Astroman when it makes it’s world premiere in October.
