In July 2017 La Mama Theatre celebrates 50 years since the premiere of its first production, Jack Hibberd's Three Old Friends. La Mama commemorates the wonderful life story of the theatre so far, tracking the history and chronology of all of the work that has been made and the careers that have been born, raised and cherished there. Woven throughout are the big stories as well as the ephemeral moments, the stitched-together patchwork that makes up the fabric of the theatre, capturing a sense of the magic that has been inspired audiences for fifty years.
