MALTHOUSE PROMPT IS OUR YOUTH AND EDUCATION PROGRAM.
PROMPT / cue, induce, make, motivate, persuade, encourage, stimulate, impel and inspire.
Malthouse Prompt brings students and teachers together with experienced industry professionals. We encourage young audiences and artists to engage deeply with all aspects of our work and hope to provoke robust discussions, debate and reflections on the world around us.
THE SUITCASE SERIES
OUR AWARD-WINNING EDUCATION PROGRAM
THE SUITCASE SERIES EMPOWERS YOUNG PEOPLE TO TACKLE THE GREATEST CHALLENGE OF THEIR GENERATION: CLIMATE CHANGE.
Year 9 and 10 students devise their own works in response to a specially commissioned script. This innovative program is an opportunity for students to develop and expand their theatre-making skills and to share a performance day with their peers, before viewing Malthouse Theatre’s full production of the play.
In 2020 Malthouse Theatre commissions the 6th play in The Suitcase Series, Hello, World! by Natesha Somasundaram.
Watch a video about Malthouse Theatre's Suitcase Series program here.
In 2021 Malthouse Theatre aims to provide more flexibility for schools by delivering a hybrid model of the program. Schools can choose to attend an in-theatre day at The Malthouse or participate remotely. Whether schools join us on stage or online, everyone will have access to our new bespoke website that is home to behind the scenes videos, mini-masterclasses and resources to support your classwork based on Hello, World! by Natesha Somasundaram.
Join us at The Malthouse for one of our in-theatre sessions.
Note: due to capacity restrictions, we will be running two sessions a day in the Tower:
DATES / 18 – 29 OCT
Morning session / 9am – 12pm
Afternoon session / 1pm – 4pm
If you can’t make it to The Malthouse, you can still participate remotely. Share your performances and engage with other schools on a private digital platform, created just for The Suitcase Series. Schools participating remotely will be supported by a suite of online resources and regular Zoom check-ins with Malthouse Theatre's team.

Malthouse Theatre makes work that fans the flames of radical culture, so there’s always the chance that someone will get naked or say something rude. The nature of devising theatre is that things can change right up until opening night. If we feel that the content of a work may inhibit yours or your students’ enjoyment of the experience we will get in touch. We’ve also provided some Risk Assessment Guidance to assist teachers prepare for excursions to The Coopers Malthouse: Download – Risk Assessment Guidance for Schools
