La Mama CourthouseLa Mama Theatre manages the Carlton Courthouse theatre, a heritage listed icon of the performing arts in Melbourne and home of the Melbourne Writers' Theatre.
La Mama was established in 1967 to nurture new Australian theatre practice and has since played a vital role in the development of the Australian dramatic voice.
The Carlton Courthouse was constructed by John Short in 1887 to the design of Public Works Department architect GBH Austin. The building is a single-storeyed Gothic style structure composed in a symmetrical but picturesque form.
The Carlton Court House is historically significant as part of the civic core of Drummond Street. It is directly opposite the 1878 Carlton Police Station.
