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.[1] 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".[2] After several arts funding bodies removed their financial support, the company struggled financially, eventually closing in 2012.[3]
