Melbourne Women’s Theatre Group

(From 1974 – 1977)


Women performers from the Australian Performing Group and women from the Women’s Movement established the Melbourne Women’s Theatre Group. The Group, which rejected gender stereotypes both on and off stage, nurtured the advancement of women performers, directors, technicians, musicians, designers and writers.

Out of the Frying Pan (1974), Sister’s Delight Festival (1974), She’ll be Right Mate (1976) and Edges (1977) were some of the programmes produced.
