Theatre ACT was a short lived professional theatre company in the ACT.

Originally Fortune Theatre, it was founded by John Cuffe, Rod Wilson, Richard Refshauge and Pat Hutchinson and involving Val McCalvey and Pam Rosenburg.  The company was renamed Theatre ACT in 1981 with the appointment of George Whaley as its first full-time artistic director.

The company ceased operating in 1985, although the name was revived in 1986 as the Fortune National Capital Theatre.  This new company was disbanded in late 1987.

The photographs in this collection are all from a production of Mother Courage and Her Children by Bertolt Brecht at the Playhouse 2-23 October 1982.
