Melbourne Workers Theatre
Melbourne Workers Theatre was an Australian theatre company from Melbourne, Australia. The company was founded in 1987 by Patricia Cornelius, Steve Payne and Michael White. The company specialises in producing work from a left-wing stance, seeking to create work that "articulates flaws in the mainstream perception of Australian culture and identity, contesting how Australians think about themselves as a nation and as a people". After several arts funding bodies removed their financial support, the company struggled financially, eventually closing in 2012.
