Post-Stork Hotel Days

With the hotel sold, the Stork Theatre was invited for a three-year residency in the grand mansion of the Alliance Francaise de Melbourne, the French language and cultural institute in St Kilda.

“The Stork Theatre has relocated from its longtime venue in the Stork Hotel in Elizabeth Street to the Alliance Francaise. The lines of sight in the space were not always perfect, and the seating was fairly basic, but there was something fundamentally and nakedly theatrical about the wonderful productions we saw there”.
The Age Melbourne Magazine – April 2009

From 2009 – 2011 the Stork Theatre continued its channelling of great works of literature into finely tuned theatrical experiences and with the commissioning of new plays.

In 2013 the Stork Theatre returned to inner Melbourne, with a new Margaret Atwood playing having its Australian premiere at La Mama Courthouse.
