Unsung Heroes

Date: 1 Jul 2020

Initially planned as part of Black Swan’s 2020 Season, Unsung Heroes, is a collection of tour-de-force solo performances celebrating everyday Western Australians who have done extraordinary things.

Directed by Emily McLean and Joe Paradise Lui, the performances tell stories of courage, adventure, new beginnings, dignity, and life’s music. The production is a timely reminder of our shared humanity.

The works have been written by playwrights Gita Bezard, Barbara Hostalek, Chris Isaacs, Hellie Turner and Mararo Wangai.

Each Unsung Heroes monologue was filmed on stage. The pre-recorded performances will be live streamed for free to registered users from Tuesday July 21. A live Q&A facilitated by Resident Artist Ian Michael will follow each live stream.

All performances will also be made available on demand.

To watch the performances live streamed or on demand, registrations are essential. Register via Black Swan’s website:
