Love is joyous, love is painful, love is union, commitment, marriage, love is…love. Melbourne Playback Theatre Company invites you to join us at a special event to celebrate, investigate and reflect on what love means to you. The recent postal survey regarding same sex marriage, where the legal rights of private relationships became the subject of public debate, was a difficult and confronting process for many in the LGBTQI+ and wider community. As Australia voted YES, let’s celebrate the outcome together and take some time to share stories of what love means to us. All are welcome.
The core of this event is made up of your stories. Stories and experiences from the audience, inspired by the theme, are invited to be shared. These stories will then be turned into theatre by a team of highly skilled actors and musicians. You can sit back, watch and enjoy, or, if you want to, you are invited to share a story of your own.
Melbourne Playback Theatre’s ensemble of professional actors, musicians and MCs have been delighting audiences for over 35 years with their unique form of improvised theatre that transforms real-life stories into theatre.
“Melbourne Playback harnesses some strange magic to make the everyday so funny and touching. It's truly something to behold” – Rebecca Harkins-Cross, Sydney Morning Herald
“..the ensemble operates like a well-oiled machine…the improvisation is terrifically skilled” - Cameron Woodhead, The Age
