PLAYWRIGHTS IN MTC 2023 SEASON LINE-UP

Congratulations to our current writer-in-residence, Declan Furber Gillick (pictured), and our inaugural writer-in-residence, Patricia Cornelius, whose works are both featuring in the Melbourne Theatre Company’s 2023 program.

Declan’s play, Jacky, is described as a sharp and witty play about family, community and culture, and examines the personal cost of navigating it all in contemporary Australia. It will open on 27th May 2023.

Patricia’s work, My Sister Jill, is set against the backdrop of 1950s and ‘60s suburban Melbourne and is a family drama that captures the spirit and struggle of a generation of Australians post-world war. It will open on 28th September 2023. My Sister Jill will be directed by Susie Dee, who has directed play readings at the Melbourne Athenaeum Library.
