La Mama Theatre is a cosy, intimate theatre space that has been presenting and nurturing new Australian theatre from its Faraday Street home since 1967.
La Mama has given support and exposure to hundreds of actors and playwrights, including David Williamson, Jack Hibberd, Barry Dickins and Cate Blanchett.
As well as operating from its original birthplace in Faraday Street, La Mama has a second performance venue at La Mama Courthouse in Drummond Street, Carlton. Both venues combine to present more than 50 new Australian works annually.
More than its buildings, La Mama is a creative touchstone and special space that supports the germination and realisation of contemporary Australian theatre.
