In every other way, we want to preserve La Mama as it was and keep it as it was, and keep it in its simplicity, and keep it in its elegant rustic-ness.
— Liz Jones, Artistic Director of La Mama

In May 2018, La Mama was ravaged by fire. However, they decided on that day to rebuild the humble Carlton theatre. The rebuild also offers an opportunity to re-imagine what La Mama can be, while celebrating who they are.
