Ear to the Edge of Time

Date: 9 Sep 2018

Inspired by true events and interviews with astrophysicists and astronomers all over the world, Alana Valentine tells a story of a young radio astronomer who makes a universe-shifting discovery, only for her work to be taken over by her older, male, supervisor.

As she wrestles with her frustration and the potential consequences of speaking out, the decision about whether to go public is taken out of her hands when a poet publishes a contentious verse about her work.

Nadia Tass directs this world premiere production. Belinda Giblin, Gabrielle Scawthorn, Christopher Stollery and Tim Walter feature.
