Thursday 24th July - Sunday 3rd August @ Southbank Theatre, The Lawler
In MTC’s 2014 NEON Festival of Independent Theatre, five independent companies will each present a work of their choice for a ten-day season in the Lawler at Southbank Theatre. Celebrating the diverse and wonderful independent theatre landscape in Melbourne, NEON is supporting independent companies and the work they want to make.
The five NEON companies and their new works include Sans Hotel’s Green Screen, a production that is part careers expo, part social experiment that looks at identity and who we are when we can no longer be defined by what we do.
