We welcome Ilbijerri Theatre Company on Saturday June 16 with the stunning work Which Way Home. Tash and her Dad are going on a road trip. Home to country, where the sky is higher and the world goes on forever. It’s a long way from the wide streets and big old houses of Tash’s childhood. Two Black faces in a very white suburb. Infused with humour and heart WHICH WAY HOME draws on writer Katie Beckett’s own memories of growing up with her single Aboriginal father.
Morning Showtime returns in June with Fun With The Celts! From wacky Irish toasts to odd Welsh myths, this one’s presented by Colin Mockett and Shirley Power with friends and surprise guests. Tuesday June 19 at 10.30am.
Suburban Sandcastles return on June 20 with the long awaited and stunning documentary investigating the human microbiome. The Gut Movie follows the journey of journalist and researcher Kale Brock. In the quest to discover whether the ‘optimal microbiome’ does indeed exist, he travels from Australia to Namibia to live with The San, an ancient hunter-gatherer people living traditionally from the land. The event includes Q&A and food and drinks.
Hit Productions return to Drysdale for the 100th tour with Hotel Sorrento – the well-known work by multi-award-winning playwright Hannie Rayson. Audiences will be transported to the normally quiet seaside town of Sorrento, to witness the comedy and the drama of a family brought to the brink. Two shows on Friday 22 at 8pm and Saturday 23 at 2pm.
