Lab Kelpie is a theatre company dedicated to the production of new work by Australian playwrights.
We actively seek out works that engage audiences by interrogating with intelligence and vigour how relationships, power and politics function in the twenty first century.
As strong advocates of new writing, we support Australian playwrights by commissioning, developing, presenting and touring their work, encouraging our writers to take risks and inspire audiences with the themes and messages they want to explore.
“One of Australia’s most exciting independent theatre companies on the rise.” – Maxim Boon, The Music
Originating from the green hills of Gippsland and now based in Melbourne, Lab Kelpie was founded in 2012 by Artistic Director Lyall Brooks and Creative Producer Adam Fawcett.
