Looking for the pulse of this nation
12-16 February | Heath Ledger Theatre
Produced by our Melbourne office in association with Arts Centre Melbourne, Anthem has been THE performance we’ve been most excited to see this season. The show just finished at Sydney Festival with rave reviews.
This daring work sees the writers behind Who’s Afraid of the Working Class? (Patricia Cornelius, Andrew Bovell, Melissa Reeves, Christos Tsiolkas & Irine Vela) come together again to explore the faultlines that divide Australian society. The play is a funny and ferocious portrait of a country unable to reconcile its past, uncertain of its future and political vision. More info>
