DON'T MISS Edward Albee

MTC 2010 John Sumner Lecture: Edward Albee


It's not everyday that we get the chance to see and listen to Edward Albee. I'm excited.

He's in Melbourne on Sunday 17 October for the MTC John Sumner Lecture, where he'll  be asked about his half century of writing, his ongoing work encouraging and mentoring new writers and what might lie ahead for dramatists and theatre in the coming decades.

Edward Albee is a three time Pulitzer Prize winner and wrote wonders lie Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?A Delicate BalanceThree Tall Women and The Zoo Story.  In 2002 he won a Tony Award for his play The Goat – or Who is Sylvia? and received the 2005 Tony Lifetime Achievement Award. Albee served as a Distinguished Professor of Playwriting at the University of Houston for 15 years.  

And tickets are FREE!
Call the MTC box office on (03) 8688 0800 

Albee will be in Sydney in October as a guest of Inscription to workshop six new commissioned Australian plays. The playwrights and works should be announced soon. Can't wait!

It's just been announced that Tee O'Neill won the AWG competition to the Albee workshop.
