AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In August 2017, Melbourne's La Mama Theatre celebrates 50 years since the premiere of its first production, Jack Hibberd's 'Three Old Friends'. La Mama commemorates the rich life story of the theatre so far, tracking the history and chronology of the work that has been made and the many careers that have been born, raised and cherished there. Complemented by hundreds of wonderful photographs, the book is woven together through a series of rowdy yarns spun by the La Mama community, capturing a sense of the magic that has been inspiring audiences for fifty years.'

Works about this Work

History and Myth Bill Garner , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: Arena Magazine , December no. 151 2017; (p. 40-43)

'Adam Cass's marvellous 'La Mama', which celebrates the theatre's half-century, is an opportunity to look at several books, a documentary film and a website that try to describe La Mama and its belligerent offspring the Pram Factory, home of the Australian Performing Group (APG). Excepting Gabrielle Wolf in her scholarly study, 'Make It Australian: The Australian Performing Group, the Pram Factory and New Wave Theatre' (2008), the makers of these chronicles reflect the collaborative nature of both theatres, releasing many voices instead of channelling their stories into a summary overview.'  (Publication abstract)
