Relationships and friendships are fruitful sources of comedy and drama and there are few writers who can harness them as expertly and with as much wit and honesty as internationally acclaimed playwright Joanna Murray-Smith.

Three Little Words brings Joanna and MTC Associate Director Sarah Goodes together again to take a gloriously revealing look at how we deal with the unexpected when the seemingly secure becomes insecure and our domestic lives go off-piste.

Three Little Words is also the first of four new Australian plays to have their world premieres in our 2017 season.

Melbourne audiences over the years have been outstanding champions of new Australian work and writers. MTC is committed to fostering new work by commissioning, developing and staging Australian stories not only for Victoria but for stages nationally and internationally.

In the coming months Melbourne Talam by Rashma N. Kalsie, Minnie & Liraz by Lally Katz and Vivid White by Eddie perfect will make their debut, and both Melbourne Talam and Minnie & Liraz will tour to regional Victorian venues allowing more people to experience these wonderful new Australian plays.
