LA MAMA THEATRE FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATED WITH BOOK BY AUTHOR AND PLAYWRIGHT, ADAM CASS

Join author and playwright, Adam Cass, for a lecture commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the La Mama theatre. Cass’ book paints a picture of the rich history of La Mama. Beyond the big moments and headline talent that performed there, Cass wants readers to understand what La Mama theatre feels like – from backstage, to the audience; from past to present; and what does the future hold?

 

The La Mama Theatre in Carlton opened in 1967, with many playwrights, actors, filmmakers, poets, musicians and more finding their voice there. The La Mama theatre is credited with opening a new Australian cultural landscape, which continues to this day. Cass’ book takes readers through La Mama’s rich history, a progression of the theatre’s most ephemeral moments and most importantly, paints a picture of what it felt like to be in La Mama as talented artists took to the stage.
