Categories - Blog, Events, Read About

May 2017 marks 50 years since the 1967 Referendum, when the Australian voting public elected to amend the constitution to allow for Aboriginal people to be counted in the census.

Yirra Yaakin asks this question with their production of Richard Frankland MA’s powerful play Conversations With The Dead, showing at the Subiaco Arts Centre this month. Read more

“REAL WITCHES dress in ordinary clothes and look very much like ordinary women. They live in ordinary houses and they work in ORDINARY JOBS. That is why they are so hard to catch.” – Roald Dahl, The Witches

One might assume the subject of witches on a mission to rid the world of children might be one best avoided by children, lest it keeps them awake at night, wondering if their own mother could be one of those ‘ordinary women’. 

But it seems no matter how dastardly and devilish the themes of Roald Dahl’s stories, audiences can’t get enough of snot goblins and muggle-wumps. Read more
