Darlinghurst Nights

Date: 20 Dec 2017

Inspired by the poetry of Kenneth Slessor, Max Lambert and Katherine Thomson’s Darlinghurst Nights roves the streets of inner city Sydney in the inter-war years, introducing its audience to colourful characters such as Joe Lynch, the artist who met a watery death when he fell off a ferry in Sydney Harbour in 1927.

Directed by Lee Lewis, choreographed by John O’Connell and featuring Baylie Carson, Andrew Cutcliffe, Natalie Gamsu, Abe Mitchell, Billie Rose Prichard, Sean O’Shea and Justin Smith, this Hayes Theatre Co production introduces a new generation of theatregoers to a show first produced by the Sydney Theatre Company in 1988 and revived in 2000 for the Olympic Arts Festival at Sydney Opera House.

Audrey’s Elissa Blake takes a walking tour of Slessor’s Sydney with Lambert and Lewis here. Why not come along?
