ThoughtLAB-14: Back to the Future
“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads,”
– Doc Emmett Brown.

We re-join our favourite time travellers, Doc Brown and Marty McFly, as their aerial craft touches down in the year 2041. Encountering a world very different to 2015, Doc and Marty must grapple with major advances in technology and changes to society to once again save their future family members from disaster. With your team of creative film researchers and actors from Melbourne Playback Theatre Company, we invite you to brainstorm the next Back to the Future movie.

Date: Wednesday 21 October (next week)

Getting there: Train Stop: Melbourne Central then tram. Tram Stop: Melbourne University
