Based on the State Library of NSW’s jawdropping collection of First World War diaries, photographs and letters, A Town Named War Boy brings to life the personal accounts of the young men that set sail for the far side of the world. Some of these diaries and letters are finished, others just stop. When you read them you meet the person, see the changes in their hand-writing, feel the indentation of the pen, the smudges of changed thoughts. Don’t miss “the most moving Anzac experience of all.” – The Australian

QUIET FAITH

BY DAVID WILLIAMS AN ALTERNATIVE FACTS PRODUCTION Thursday 3 MAY 11AM & 8PM Friday 4 MAY 8PM Tickets: $20-$35 IN THE STUDIO

Quiet Faith is a journey into the world of the quietly, progressively faithful. The place of Christian faith in Australian politics is often linked to conservatism and intolerance. Yet, new faith-based social movements actively campaign against government policies. The spectacle of religious leaders undertaking non-violent acts of civil disobedience, has captured the imaginations of many. Generated from hours of interviews with Christian Australians, Quiet Faith offers a beautiful, immersive and heartfelt portrait of the very different ways that faith can underpin civic life.
