MTC Launch 2013 Season
Brett Sheehy’s inaugural season as director of the Melbourne Theatre Company (MTC) will illuminate one of our city’s eminent theatrical organisations.
New Light 2013, released Thursday night, includes a program of some familiar faces, new collaborators and groundbreaking works. Sheehy says of his program, “We shine a new light on artists who have never worked with the Company before - new actors, new directors, new writers, new designers, new composers and new companies – all of who will enrich not only our experience, but the experience of all Melburnians welcomed into our orbit.”
Some highlights include a new work by David Williamson Rupert, delving into the power and influence of the Murdoch empire, Arthur Miller’s classic The Crucible featuring David Wenham and Animal Kingdom star Jacki Weaver in South African tale Solomon And Marion.
