Where Australia’s Great Theatre Artists Trod the Boards: 50 Years of Melbourne’s La Mama Theatre, Denise Varney , 2017 single work essay

'When Betty Burstall returned to Australia in 1967 after two years in New York with her husband, the artist Tim Burstall, she missed the little places where you “paid 50 cents for a cup of coffee and you saw a performance”. After talking to a few local actors, directors and writers, she signed a lease on a former (some say shirt, others say underwear) factory at 205 Faraday Street in Carlton, Melbourne. It was a two-storey brick building 28 feet wide and 30 feet long, with a garden in front.' (Introduction)
